Xos — the winding road of an electric mobility startup


Xos, named at the birth of Thor Trucks, has joined the ranks of electromobility companies that have entered the open market with their shares.

So, the energy in the mobile mega charger can be pumped both from the network and from solar panels.

The energy in such a battery container accumulates enough to

By the way, at some point, Xos even took part in the creation of an electric scooter. There is practically nothing special in this, only that the owners of such a scooter will be pleased to see a cool logo on their electric micromobility vehicle.
