Motiv Power Systems displayed one of its Class 5 electric step vans, pulled from actual service with D.C.-based Giant Food. Motiv also brought along the driver of that truck, Garren Bailey. The first time Bailey drove the truck, “I thought it was broke,” he said, because it was so quiet. It didn’t take him much time to get used to driving it and using the regenerative braking. Bailey actually coaxed 136 miles on one battery charge — well above the truck’s expected range of 105 miles.
