Flash Motors, a provider of electric vehicle solutions, will be forming a partnership with the Government of Jamaica in its transition to electric transportation trial.
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has enabled this trial of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure to the Jamaican Government as part of its continuing support for electric mobility.
PARTNERSHIP WITH STEWART’S
As part of the programme, Flash Motors will supply all-electric vehicles and charging infrastructure to the participating ministries and private sector participants.
In a statement, Flash Motors said it was proud to work with its Jamaican dealer partners, Stewart’s Auto Group, to deliver the programme during a March 17 trial at the Stewart’s Auto Group’s Jaguar Land Rover Showroom, during which the CEO of Flash Motors donated two ABB Chargers to the participating ministries, the Ministry of Transport and Mining and the Planning Institute of Jamaica.
ABB Chargers are considered a global leader in EV charging technology with the highest uptime in the market.
The Flash Motors’ team said it was also fully equipped to provide management software and fleet integration services to ensure major investments in electric vehicles can be optimised for cost and performance. Flash Motors’ charging stations are suitable for passenger vehicles, commercial trucks, and transit buses.
“The GOJ is serious about its integration of electric vehicles into the public fleet. We have seen this in their recent procurement efforts for vehicle and transit fleets. Our team is ecstatic to have the opportunity to supply them with world-class charging infrastructure from ABB,” said Xavier Gordon, director and CEO of Flash Motors Company Limited.
The installation of charging stations will take place at the offices of the participating ministries.
Flash Motors said it was grateful for the support of the IDB and its commitment to the Government’s forward-thinking electric mobility policy. The company said the programme is a testament to the Government’s commitment to sustainable transportation, and that it was honoured to be a partner in this effort.
