School Bus Type A

School buses have been identified as a great candidate for electrification. Most routes are less than 100 miles and are parked in dedicated depots where charging infrastructure can be installed. Most importantly, they carry our most precious cargo, our children, who can benefit greatly from the elimination of harmful emissions. Motiv has been at the forefront of this movement since 2013, when we deployed the first electric Type A school bus in the country.

Today, we build electric Type A school buses with two leading school bus builders - Trans Tech and Collins. Merging our EV expertise with their school bus manufacturing experience has created the perfect combination for any school looking for reliable and high performing electric school buses.
