EPIC® F-53

While Ford's F-53 platform is the default motorhome chassis under most American built RVs, this platform is also used for trolley buses, mobile health, and mobile education applications, which are great candidates for EV applications.

Motiv has been electrifying the F-53 for over 2 years with vehicles on the road today with customers like Winnebago, UCLA and Vail Valley Foundation. Today's EPIC F53 comes with three BMW passenger car batteries, our patented AdaptEV™ software platform and our next-gen Adaptive Battery Controller®.
