California Truck Equipment Co. (CTEC), in Downey, Calif., and Rockport Commercial Vehicles, in Elkhart, Ind., are now offering all-electric versions of their existing commercial vehicles – maintenance work trucks and box trucks, respectively – using the Motiv all-electric powertrain.

According to Motiv Power Systems, these builders join Morgan Olson, TransTech Bus, Ameritrans Bus and Cumberland Service Center as vehicle builders employing the Motiv all-electric powertrain to offer OEM electric versions of their vehicles.
