MOTIV POWER SYSTEMS
How Motiv Got Started
The fascination for electric vehicles (EVs) started for Motiv Founder and CEO Jim Castelaz at an early age. When he was eight he predicted his own future by drawing an electric car for a class project on what he planned to do when he grew up! After studying for his PhD and catching a particularly virulent strain of the Silicon Valley Entrepreneurship Bug, Jim was fully convinced that this problem of oil dependence in the truck industry was the most important problem he could be trying to solve. This is his story.
What do we do?
The Motiv electric Powertrain Control System (ePCS) enables all-electric drive commercial vehicles to be built as easily as diesel vehicles, while providing clear benefits in operating costs, maintenance, configurability and emissions reductions.
