Approximately a third of these eight million fossil fueled trucks and buses in the US are ideal for electrification. These vehicles drive planned local routes less than 100 miles a day with a lot of starts and stops and park in a depot at night, which typically have the infrastructure necessary for charging the vehicles. These vehicles range from shuttle buses and delivery trucks, to school buses, garbage trucks and municipal fleet work trucks, just to name a few.
Today, fleets face many elements pushing them towards alternative fuels, including emissions regulations, oil dependence and price volatility, national security, and growing public opinion on environmental concerns. The thousands of electric trucks already on the road, show EVs are an economically and environmentally responsible solution for a variety of transportation needs. Motiv is uniquely positioned to push this trend forward.
