B–ON, a clean mobility provider, and Mobility in Harmony (MIH), an open ecosystem for electric vehicles (EVs), have announced plans to develop their partnership to provide shared solutions for fleet customers. Under this partnership, B–ON’s next-generation Pelkan, an electric light commercial vehicle (eLCV), will complement MIH’s last mile delivery and software solutions.
The vehicle is expected to be available from 2024 in both 43 and 54 kWh battery variants.
The Pelkan EV show car, on show at the Japan Mobility Show in Tokyo, is equipped with B–ON’s time-saving smart package dispenser.
The full worldwide debut of the 100% electric light commercial vehicle is planned to take place at CES in January, 2024, in anticipation of its introduction later in the year.
MIH is an open EV development platform initiated by multinational electronics manufacturer Foxconn, officially established in 2021.
Jack Cheng, CEO of MIH, adds: “MIH and B–ON are strongly aligned in our shared vision for shaping the future of urban mobility through EVs, cutting-edge software, and service innovations that enhance productivity for B2B customers. We are eager to explore synergies and maximize business opportunities harnessing the strengths of each other’s products and services in this rapidly evolving space.”
B–ON is a leading provider of EVs, and electric solutions for commercial fleets.
