Sacramento City Unified School District Deploys
Three New All-Electric School Buses

Sacramento City Unified School District recently upgraded their fleet with three Motiv-powered, all-electric, Type A school buses. Sacramento County is now home to 11 Motiv-powered school buses, furthering its strong commitment to sustainability.

Sacramento County's Climate Action Plan aims to reduce greenhouse gases and transportation accounts for almost half of GHG emissions for the county. Motiv-powered vehicles are zero-emissions, eliminating harmful carbon emissions and particulate matter entirely. Sacramento City Unified's new all-electric Type A school buses are based on Ford E-450 chassis with bodies built by Trans Tech Bus.



All-electric school buses create a healthier and more comfortable ride for our kids. Research has shown children see improved lung functions and IQ levels when schools step away fossil fuels. The smooth and silent operation of a Motiv-powered school bus also benefits both operators and students, especially those with any audio/sensory sensitivities.

Why Upgrade?

Save up to 85% in operating costs and 66% in maintenance costs!

While the environmental case for going all-electric was always strong, the financial case has never been better, thanks to reduced battery prices and increasing federal and state incentives. 

Motiv's EPIC chassis is designed to meet or exceed internal combustion engine performance and provides comparable acceleration and hill climbing power to gasoline or diesel power. Every Motiv chassis is Ford eQVM approved, GSA approved, and CARB certified. Motiv chassis have also been validated by hundreds of thousands of real world miles. 


Motiv-powered vehicles have driven 500,000 miles and counting!
