Motiv Power Systems Secures Order for 30 More Electric Delivery Vans from Cintas

What’s Happening

Motiv Power Systems, a leading innovator of electric trucks and buses, has announced a new vehicle order from Cintas, a leader in diversified business services. The order includes 30 additional advanced zero-emission all-electric delivery vans, expanding the relationship between the two companies.

Why It Matters

This expansion follows the successful pilot program of seven Motiv-powered vehicles across Michigan, New York, and California in 2022. The new order brings the total number of Motiv-powered electric vehicles (EVs) in the Cintas fleet to 37, as the company aims to reduce its carbon footprint and meet internal sustainability targets.

Key Points

  • Cintas operates one of the largest corporate fleets in North America, with nearly 14,000 commercial vehicles deployed across the United States and Canada.
  • Since the initial pilot program, Motiv has helped Cintas reduce tailpipe greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 37 metric tons, aligning with Cintas’ broader Electric Vehicle and Alternative-Fuel Vehicle Strategy.
  • The new order of Motiv trucks will be deployed on existing Cintas routes, driving daily routes nationwide.
  • Motiv’s EPIC5 platform, on which the electric delivery vehicles are built, is a market-leading platform for delivery vans that utilizes a proprietary hardware and software EV platform for optimized vehicle performance and efficiency.

Bottom Line

Motiv Power Systems’ expanded relationship with Cintas demonstrates a promising future for commercial fleets transitioning to electric vehicles. This partnership not only helps Cintas reduce its environmental impact but also showcases the efficiency and performance of Motiv’s EV platform. As more companies like Cintas make the switch to electric fleets, the impact on the industry and environment will be significant, leading to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
