EV Chassis Developments Continue as Suppliers Address Technology, Charging, Maintenance Issues

EV technology, especially high voltage battery technology, is maturing rapidly, noted Dave Brosky, vice president of sales and business development for Fontaine Modification Work & EV Solutions. At the same time, existing OEMs are integrating more advanced electric powertrains into their chassis and new vehicle manufacturers are introducing a range of purpose-built EVs.


Leveraging its extensive expertise and existing relationships as a post-production vehicle modification service provider, Fontaine is serving as an integrator for Class 4-8 EVs in several of its facilities. The company offers up front engineering work and coordinates with chassis manufacturers and electric powertrain partners, as well as body builders and truck equipment suppliers.

“We’re gaining experience with production of multiple systems to support fleet mechanical installation and system integration needs,” Brosky said. “As an intermediate and final stage manufacturer, we are in a position to serve as a central resource as EV makers seek higher volumes and enter more specialty vehicle and niche markets.


“Electric commercial vehicles are one of the fastest growing segments in the U.S.,” Brosky added, “and many innovative companies are working hard to meet deployment needs and solve challenges. For fleets, there is a lot of value in bringing in partners who know trucks and their applications early on and in taking advantage of their experience.”
