Motiv Power Systems, a company focused on large commercial vehicles, is providing eletric school buses in California to eliminate diesel engines and improve air quality for school children.
With the help of a $7.5 million grant from the California Air Resources Board, the first 13 electric buses with Motiv Power battery electric powertrains, manufactured by Trans Tech, will be deployed in the Elk Grove Unified School District and Twin Rivers Unified School District in the Sacramento area.
“As a father of three small children, it excites me that improving air quality surrounding school transportation is increasingly within reach for many fleets,” said Motiv Power Systems CEO Jim Castelaz.
