Motiv’s All-Electric Powertrain uses an innovative architecture that is scalable and modular, which allows us to use the same core components in vehicles ranging from a Type A School Bus to a Class 8 Refuse Truck. Our ruggedized automotive grade power electronics allow us to independently manage off the shelf commercial battery packs, electric motors, and auxiliary systems on any commercial chassis which is unmatched in flexibility.
Our software modules allow us to remotely provide system upgrades, diagnostics, and schedule preventative maintenance. The combined effect of these components is a future-proof design which can integrate new battery packs, motors, and accessories on different new chassis’.
We have proved the flexibility of this system by running two battery chemistries on the same vehicle, something no other technology provider has done. Applications using the Motiv All-Electric Powertrain include zero-emission school buses, shuttle buses, delivery trucks, work trucks, and even a refuse truck.
