City of Chicago orders 20 electric garbage trucks
California-based Motiv’s electric Powertrain Control System (ePCS) is designed to electrify any truck or bus chassis with a variety of commercially-available battery packs and motors. The ePCS is installed as a ship-through modification, enabling electrification with minimal changes between fossil fuel and electric versions of the vehicles. Another customer is California’s Kings Canyon School District, which has ordered four ePCS-powered electric school buses.
Motiv also offers a remote real-time data system to monitor vehicle performance.
