As of October 2017, Motiv-powered vehicles have driven more than 275,000 miles. In 2017 alone, they have covered more than 83,000 miles, saving nearly 300 barrels of oil from consumption. 

According to Motiv, the company and its technology have grown significantly since starting its mission to free fleets from fossil fuels in 2009, growing by 200% in the past year. 

Motiv’s all-electric powertrain uses an innovative architecture that is scalable and modular, which allows for the use of the same core components in vehicles ranging from a Type A school bus to a Class 8 refuse truck. The company's ruggedized automotive grade power electronics allow it to independently manage off-the-shelf commercial battery packs, electric motors, and auxiliary systems on any commercial chassis.

Software modules allow for remote system upgrades, diagnostics, and schedule preventative maintenance.

Applications using the Motiv all-electric powertrain include zero-emission school buses, shuttle buses, delivery trucks, work trucks, and even a refuse truck.
