Colorado-based powertrain manufacturer Lightning eMotors has launched a new EV telematics and charger management software product that’s designed for fleets.
Lightning Insights is a subscription-based software package that’s available for existing and new Lightning EVs. It includes an API for third-party software integration.
“Lightning Insights offers a user-friendly customer portal and upcoming mobile app for monitoring and reporting dozens of real-time analytics from a customizable dashboard of easy-to-digest graphs, charts and slides,” says VP of Energy and Insights Brandon McNeil. “Whether managing one vehicle, a fleet of hundreds, or a combined vehicle and charger deployment, our new telematics system is designed to simplify fleet operations with the click of a button.”
Fleet operators can use the software to monitor up to 156 data points in real time, including vehicle location, state of charge, vehicle health and lifetime metrics.
The company says customers can use the software to control charger access, charge time scheduling, load management and payment methods on Lightning eMotors’s fleet charging systems.
“We’re excited to bring this next-generation product to our lineup of all-electric, zero-emission vans, trucks and buses, and to further inform our customers on route optimization, driver behavior and other metrics that boost vehicle uptime and longevity,” says Lightning eMotors CRO Kash Sethi. “Lightning’s original analytics solution has served our customers well over the years, but Insights will allow operators to dive much deeper into electric vehicle-specific health and driver behavior than most commercial telematics solutions on the market today.”
