American Automobile Association now offers a new type of roadside-assistance which is targeted for Electric Vehicles (EV). The new AAA truck is capable of recharging batteries for stranded drivers of electric vehicles. With Nissan, Chevy, Tesla, and other manufacturers growing in the EV market, AAA is showing interest by offering roadside-assistance in 6 major U.S. metropolitan areas for the EV program beginning later this summer. The six major U.S. metropolitan areas covered will be Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; San Francisco, California; Los Angeles, California; Knoxville, Tennessee; and Tampa Bay, Florida.
The AAA trucks will be able to perform regular services that include traditional repairs, battery testing and jumping, tire replacements, fuel delivery, lockout service, etc. The additional EV recharging service will be able to recharge your EV in 10-15 minutes and provide a range of up to 15 miles to get you to the nearest EV charging station.
