Efficient motors and LFP batteries will power Motiv’s new medium-duty truck

Motiv has been making electric powertrains for other chassis for 14 years now. Compared to light-duty vehicles—smaller pickup trucks, SUVs, and passenger cars—there’s a relative lack of new medium-duty electric trucks for the commercial market. That’s not to say there are no medium-duty EVs out there—quite a few companies have been making electric powertrains for use in commercial vehicles like delivery vans and school buses. Motiv is one such company, a 14-year veteran of the field. Today it announced a new medium-duty EV designed from the ground up, called the Argo.
