Nxu and Electric Outdoors create a mutual beneficial collaboration to power the future of EV weekend warriors

MESA, Ariz., Feb. 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nxu, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXU) (“Nxu” or “the Company”), a leading domestic technology firm specializing in innovative EV charging and energy storage solutions for the infrastructure driving our electrified future, has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Electric Outdoors (“EO”), a trailblazer in off-grid EV camping systems. This collaboration marks a significant stride toward revolutionizing the EV road trip experience by seamlessly combining Nxu’s cutting-edge charging technology into future EO Canopy portable solar generation units.

The Letter of Intent (LOI) inked between Nxu and Electric Outdoors solidifies the commitment to establishing a mutually beneficial partnership that will combine the strengths of both companies to amplify the effectiveness and utility of the EO Canopy system. Nxu intends to deploy the EO Canopy system for charging in remote areas and during site buildouts, ensuring customers have access to EO Canopy amenities during the early phases of charging station development. Conversely, Electric Outdoors will begin purchasing and integrating the NxuOne™ charging systems into their EO Canopies and providing additional pull-through charging capabilities at future sites, providing an unparalleled charging experience for off-grid EV adventure.

"We are thrilled to embark on this journey with Electric Outdoors and explore the possibilities found at the intersection of charging technology and outdoor adventure," said Mark Hanchett, CEO and founder at Nxu.

Electric Outdoors, a pioneer in outdoor sustainable adventure experiences, shares the excitement about the collaboration. “This partnership with Nxu aligns perfectly with our mission to revolutionize the future of electric RVs and off-grid camping,” said Josef Hjelmaker, CEO and founder at Electric Outdoors. “By combining our strengths, we can provide innovative solutions that cater to the evolving needs of EV owners and campers.”

The collaboration will focus on Electric Outdoors integrating the NxuOne™ charging systems into its EO Canopies for universal deployment.
