Club Assist says it is keeping its eye on the future of mobility

Leveraging its expertise in energy storage and history of technology innovation, Club Assist says it is developing cutting-edge solutions to support roadside assistance and the future of mobility through a reliable real-world solution.
Club Assist is partnering with automotive clubs RAA and RAC to support electric vehicle (EV) owners and give EV drivers who have run out of charge an emergency boost.

Adapting to change
Many Australians may be considering making the switch to an EV and one of the main barriers is in knowing how and where they will charge, particularly if they run out of charge while on the road. A ‘flat’ EV would typically need to be towed to the nearest charging site or to the owner’s address.
The Club Assist solution tops-up a stranded EV with enough charge to either get to their destination or a local recharge station. In just 15 minutes, it can put approximately 10-15 kilometres of range into a typical EV.
Comprising batteries, an inverter, a control system and charging cable, the device delivers this top-up service for EV drivers.
The solution can be scaled to suit different operational requirements. Club Assist says a popular configuration carries a total of 60 kilometres of electric range, enabling multiple rescues throughout the day.
The modular battery design can be expanded for increased range to meet varying needs of more rural areas or frequent usage scenarios, or even reduced if a lower weight solution is required.
Designed to also enable onboard recharging while a roadside service vehicle is traveling between jobs, either from the vehicle’s electrical system or from rooftop solar panels, the device is able to remain ready for the next rescue. At the end of the day, the charger can be easily plugged into a standard power outlet for charging.

Amping up for the future
As the adoption of EVs continues to rise, there is a growing need for reliable and convenient charging infrastructure, as well as EV-specific roadside solutions.
Club Assist states it has worked with Arizon International and Powerplant Services to develop its unique mobile EV charging solution, as it supports motoring clubs with new services to meet the needs of EV owners.
It says detailed research has gone into developing the design of the prototype and testing of the solution.
The mobile EV charger is now undergoing trials in two states to gather operational data. Club Assist says this will be key to the continued evolution of the charging device and to facilitating the consumer confidence required for the transition to EVs in Australia.
