Electrify Any Truck

Reducing transportation costs and freeing trucks from fossil fuels

Motiv’s patented All-Electric Powertrain uses commercially-available battery packs and motors to make reliable Battery Electric trucks and buses with the same chassis and bodies as their fossil-fueled counterparts. The only difference is what’s powering the truck – clean, cheap, stable electricity!

Leading the Charge

Motiv has delivered America’s first all-electric garbage truck and only new California certified all-electric school bus. Additionally, Motiv’s All-Electric Powertrain is battery agnostic and can run 2 different battery technologies in the same vehicle, something not possible for any non-Motiv powered EV truck! Motiv leads in innovation, scalability and technology transfer capability.


Our vision is to enable truck manufacturers to build trucks that are not reliant on fossil fuel. At the heart of this vision is a core belief in the ingenuity, skill and hard work of the USA truck and bus manufacturers that we partner with to make Motiv-equipped electric vehicles. With Motiv’s technology, we offer a new, clean powertrain to US truck manufactures. We manufacture Motiv’s All-Electric Powertrain in Hayward, California.




The Motiv team is fueled with passion to move the transportation industry into the 21st Century with all-electric trucks.

Helping fleets reduce their transportation costs, as well as their carbon footprints, charges us to strive for the highest levels of innovation, reliability, and customer service – changing the world one truck at a time.
