Leviton selected as charging point supplier for American Honda
As part of the deal, Leviton will provide the manufacturer’s customers and dealers with charging points starting with the introduction of the Fit EV this summer. It also extends Leviton's portfolio of electric vehicle manufacturer relationships – the company is already preferred charging point supplier to Toyota in the United States.
Michael Mattei, vice president and general manager for Leviton's Commercial and Industrial Business Unit, said: ‘Leviton is excited to work with American Honda as they launch their electric vehicle program here in America. At a high level we share a very similar overall mission; to supply products of the highest quality at a reasonable price for complete customer satisfaction.
‘In addition, we hope to continue to enable the electric and hybrid electric industry through simple, easy to purchase, easy to install and easy to use products, while providing the highest level of consumer safety.’
Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda, added: ‘As leaders in the fields of advanced technology for mobility and energy solutions, Leviton and Honda both have unique missions to create a more sustainable future.
‘Pairing Leviton's EV charging solutions with Honda's advanced Fit EV and Accord Plug-In Hybrid Sedan electric vehicles will enable a more convenient and seamless ownership experience for our customers.’
