Motiv Power Systems has received an order for 30 additional advanced zero-emission all-electric delivery vans from office supply giant Cintas Corp.
This new order follows the successful pilot of seven Motiv-powered vehicles in California, New York and Michigan in 2022. The new trucks will be deployed on existing Cintas routes, bringing the number of Motiv-powered EVs in the Cintas fleet to 37 vehicles driving daily routes nationwide across the three states.
The electric delivery vehicles are built on Motiv’s EPIC5 platform, which provides optimized vehicle performance and efficiency through a proprietary hardware and software EV platform, enabling an easier pathway to electrification for fleets of the future.
To date, the deployment of Motiv’s electric delivery vehicles has helped Cintas reduce tailpipe greenhouse gas emissions by 37 metric tons, aligning with the company’s broader Electric Vehicle and Alternative-Fuel Vehicle Strategy.
Cintas operates almost 14,000 commercial vehicles throughout the U.S. and Canada. Recognizing the importance of transitioning its fleet, the company is working with manufacturers such as Motiv Power Systems to procure and deploy additional EVs to achieve its internal sustainability targets.
“We’re proud to support Cintas in every area of the relationship, whether it’s procuring funding for vehicles, meeting with the field team for ongoing training and program improvements, driving operational cost savings and ultimately freeing their fleet from fossil fuels,” said Tim Krauskopf, CEO of Motiv Power Systems. “This next step in our relationship shows the future of commercial fleets is a promising one — where we work together to leave a lasting impact on the industry and environment at large.”
Headquartered in Foster City, California, Motiv Power Systems is a manufacturer of all-electric chassis for medium-duty commercial vehicles.
