ZEV Station, with its headquarters in Palm Springs, California, is on a mission to remove the vehicle from the carbon equation™ with ultra-fast, carbon-free fuel for EVs and hydrogen vehicles. Its goal is to replace -gasoline with EV fast-charging-, and -diesel with hydrogen- for all Zero-Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) all while providing a high-end customer experience. With the “Premier” full-scale location slated to open in 2024, ZEV Station is planning the highway travel center, an “environmental oasis” for America’s next generation of clean transportation.
In 2022, ZEV Station launched its first public charging station at the iconic Palm Springs Art Museum in California in October of this year. This ‘proof of concept’ EV site is both a validation tool and first revenue springboard with both public charging and ZEV Fleet. Together with FedEx ISPs, there is are Class 6 EV Step Vans running daily delivery business, charging exclusively at ZEV Station (See Video).
Their hydrogen strategy is to bridge the gap between two transportation megatrends: hydrogen for heavy duty transport by leveraging renewable hydrogen at scale (H2 Hubs).
