EPIC® E-450

Ford's E-450 platform is the market leading platform for shuttle buses, small school buses, step vans, delivery trucks and work trucks. The last-mile operation and return-to-depot use case makes these vehicles a perfect candidate for electrification.

Motiv has been electrifying the E-450 for more than 5 years, with vehicles on the road today with customers like USPS, Google, UCLA, and several schools in California and New York. Today's EPIC E-450 comes with three BMW passenger car batteries, our patented AdaptEV™ software platform, and our next-gen Adaptive Battery Controller®.
