MESA, Ariz., Nov. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nxu Inc., (NASDAQ: NXU) (“Nxu”, “the Company”), a domestic technology company developing and manufacturing innovative EV charging and energy storage solutions for the infrastructure we need to power our electrified future, is piloting a subscription service for customers of its Nxu One Megawatt+ Charging System. For $69 a month, subscribers get unlimited charging at one of the most powerful public charging stations in the Phoenix metro area.
“Nxu technology enables powerful, standard-agnostic charging, giving EV users exactly the power they need, when they need it. Since launching field trials of our Nxu One Megawatt+ Charging System, customers have been impressed with the power, consistency, and experience. Early user data pointed us to accelerating the launch of our subscription pilot with our first subscriber enrolling last week,” said Nxu Founder, Chairman and CEO Mark Hanchett. “We’ve long envisioned a future where energy is harnessed in a way that is abundant and accessible, and subscriptions not only enhance that vision, but add ease and convenience to the equation. Electric vehicles are the future and we’ll soon be in an all-EV world. Nxu estimates the total addressable market (TAM) opportunity of approximately $230 billion, annually, in the U.S. Nxu is positioning itself as an emerging leader in the charging industry as it scales its operations. We look forward to seeing what the data tells us in this pilot phase and applying what we learn to continuously improve upon the experience for our subscribers.”
