Sparking Electric-Powered Powertrain Adoption

Despite currently record-low fuel prices, emissions, anti-idling and noise regulations are driving medium-duty fleets to consider alternative fuels for their transportation needs. In particular, for operations with local multi-stop routes covering less than 100 miles a day, interest continues to grow in electric-powered delivery and work trucks.

According to Motiv Power Systems, approximately one-third of the eight million fossil-fueled trucks and buses in the U.S. are ideal candidates for electrification. The thousands of electric trucks already on the road, notes the manufacturer of scalable All-Electric Powertrains for commercial vehicles, is a clear indication that electric trucks are viable financially and are a solution that provides for environmental protection.
