Motiv Power Systems All-Electric Powertrain Integrated Into New Electric Truck Types Using Ford …

“We are thrilled to be providing all-electric versions of our existing work trucks to clients,” stated Rick Anderson, President, of California Truck Equipment Business. “The Motiv-powered work truck looks and operates just like its gas equivalent, making it simple for our clients to fit them into their existing fleets. The upkeep truck for the City of Santa Ana has proved to be extremely trusted, and we look forward to constructing more.” Meanwhile, the first Rockport All-Electric Box Truck will permit fleet operators situated in and checking out the San Francisco Bay Location to get a first-hand experience of what it’s like to drive a state-of-the-art all-electric automobile.
