Motiv Power Systems, a technology company delivering a proven software platform for the electrification of medium-duty trucks and buses, has opened a new facility in Stockton, California. The facility will serve as a pre-delivery inspection and service center enabling local and efficient customer support.
Stockton is Motiv’s third California facility along with its Hayward manufacturing facility and Foster City headquarters.
Along with US-based engineering and assembling, this service center will support the majority of Motiv customer’s electric vehicle (EV) fleets that are in the San Joaquin Valley, improving air quality and driver experience, in addition to providing competitive jobs. To date, Motiv customers nationwide have driven more than 950,000 clean miles, offsetting 1,033 metric tons of greenhouse gasses (GHG), or the equivalent of more than 103,635 gallons of diesel consumed.
Founded in 2009, Motiv recently secured $60 million in Series B funding, and has enabled more than two dozen customers to electrify their fleets. The company is also planning an expansion in Detroit with an engineering and manufacturing facility.
Motiv continues key geographic growth initiatives working with partners like Ford, BMW, Winnebago, Utilimaster Corp., REV Group, Champion Bus, Collins Bus, Trans Tech Bus, and more.
Vehicles electrified by Motiv feature operating software and power electronics on popular Ford chassis, most notably the E-450 and F-59. As a Ford partner and Qualified Vehicle Modifier (eQVM) for EVs, Motiv adheres to Ford’s stringent assessment criteria verifying it meets manufacturing, assembly, workmanship, customer service, and quality requirements that align with fleet customer’s long-term needs and goals.
