Motiv Power Systems secured more than 100 new orders via California’s HVIP program. Customers include Cintas, FedEx, Aramark, Alsco, City Fresh, Great White Packaging, and more.
The California Air Resources Board’s HVIP program accelerates commercialization by making clean vehicles more affordable through point-of-purchase price reductions.
Motiv’s new orders span a range of sectors well-suited for electric trucks and buses including parcel delivery step vans, retail goods vehicles, municipal work trucks, and more.
“Innovative companies worldwide are looking to an all-electric future and need collaborators like Motiv with our proven track record of delivering successful EV vehicles, as well as broader fleet rollouts,” says Tim Krauskopf, CEO of Motiv Power Systems.
Companies with California fleets are facing a 2031 deadline to implement EV solutions to replace fossil-fueled engines. “That’s sooner than you think when it comes to testing, piloting, and deploying EV fleets,” Krauskopf says. “This recent surge in customer response is an endorsement of Motiv’s track record of getting it right the first time—and every time after that.”
INNOVATIVE NEW TECHNOLOGIES
Motiv’s HVIP results are among several indicators of the market traction the company is seeing ahead of the ACT Expo. At the expo, Motiv will showcase innovative new technologies and its collaboration with customers, including Cintas and Canada Post.
Motiv is fresh from announcing that its next-generation EV truck battery can last more than 150-miles on a single charge. That is a milestone achieved in recent field testing with an EV truck hauling a three-ton payload. Motiv will launch this modular technology in early 2023 in partnership with Our Next Energy (ONE).
Motiv’s 6th generation platform will also include a new motor co-designed with the electric motor manufacturer, Nidec Motor Corporation, as part of Motiv’s suite of patented technologies. Motiv’s new Nidec motor achieves peak torque levels equal to widely used diesel Class 8 semi-tractors.
