Fenix Power Moving Into New Facility

Before showing off our new facility, the Fenix team wants to thank our loyal customers for their patience and faith in us so far. We know that there have been a number of skeptics on social media, and one of the big questions we keep getting is, "Where are you going to do everything you're promising?" After working with our reservation customers, our investors, and our team, we've got the funding and plan finalized, and we are ready to get this project started and on the road! After careful consideration and planning, we've finally selected and secured a space to…

Our CEO @ PitchBreakfast!

Our CEO @ PitchBreakfast!

On Wednesday last week our CEO, John Bysinger, gave a presentation about Fēnix Power at the Charlotte startup event PitchBreakfast. He discussed the Fēnix goal of addressing the EV market need for a large scale, reliable, and affordable aftermarket battery solution for EVs that are no longer covered by their manufacturer's warranty. He went on to discuss how currently auto manufacturers and their closed and expensive parts replacement options will quickly turn automobiles into disposable consumer items similar to cell phones. Flashy high tech toys that are tossed aside and recycled when their battery is worn out. With the common EV…

If you proceed to checkout you will see the reservation is actually in the cart and you should be able to proceed from there. Let…

What Fēnix Power Isn’t.

What Fēnix Power Isn’t.

With our unique subscription-based service model, we get a lot of comparisons to previous Electric Vehicle ventures. The two most common are the Renault battery lease/rental and the Better Place battery swap services. Here we'll explain why the Fēnix Power model isn't like either of those battery solutions. Let's take a look at the Renault battery lease first, as it is close to, but still different from what we are doing. With the battery lease, you buy your EV, and then rent your battery from Renault. This lowers the vehicle purchase price and does separate the battery from the vehicle…
