TELUS and FLO expanding connectivity on FLO EV chargers across North American cities
FLO is Canada’s most extensive EV network, with charging stations coast-to-coast
QUEBEC CITY – Today, TELUS and FLO, a leading North American electric vehicle (EV) charging network operator and a smart charging solutions provider, announced an agreement to bring TELUS’ world-leading connection to FLO chargers. FLO is Canada’s most extensive EV network, enabling more than 1.5 million charging sessions each month thanks to charging stations located coast-to-coast. With most light-duty vehicles sold in Canada expected to be required to be zero emissions by 2035, TELUS will support FLO’s development of critical infrastructure helping to drive the adoption of electric vehicles and support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
FLO will leverage TELUS’ dedicated IoT network solutions and connectivity platforms in FLO public and commercial Level 2 and Direct Current Fast Chargers (DCFC) across North America. TELUS’ innovative technology is expected to enhance reliability and uptime and increase operational efficiency by providing real-time visibility on at least 60,000 of FLO’s chargers in Canada and the U.S., including the new FLO Ultra fast charger. Thanks to its revolutionary flexible design, the FLO Ultra charging station provides drivers with a convenient, intuitive and lightning-fast charging experience.
“This agreement underpins TELUS’ commitment to lead in sustainability, finding ways to use our world-leading connectivity and technology to drive environmental change, build intelligent cities and create a more sustainable future. This exciting step demonstrates how innovation and quick evolution in the EV space is providing a better experience for customers,” said Navin Arora, Executive Vice-president, TELUS and President, TELUS Business Solutions and TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods.
“FLO is focused on providing EV drivers the best charging experience,” said Louis Tremblay, FLO President and CEO. “TELUS will help FLO advance this mission by providing critical support to keep our chargers communicating with our network and maintaining FLO’s leading uptime of more than 98 per cent. We are thrilled that TELUS is supporting FLO in our work to help usher in a zero-emissions transportation future.”
Born of a common vision for a cleaner, more sustainable future, this project supports FLO’s work to address climate change and accelerate EV adoption while demonstrating TELUS’ longstanding commitment to leverage its technology, products and services to build a better, more sustainable future.
