Next to DC fast charging solutions, Heliox offers charger monitoring and energy management services. This expands Siemens eMobility’s IoT product portfolio and strengthens its digitalization and software offering.

The combination of the two companies’ charging portfolios creates a strong offering for eBus and eTruck customers. Heliox is set to benefit from Siemens’ industrialization capabilities, global sales network and infrastructure, enabling it to scale up its production and meet increasing customer demand.
