Motiv Power Systems delivers five electric step vans to Shasta Linen Supply

Motiv Power Systems announced the completed deployment of five electric delivery vehicles to Shasta Linen Supply, a commercial linen supply company delivering linens, uniforms, and other textiles to more than 1,200 business and professional firms in California.

California’s Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) regulation requires fleets to have 50% of their vehicles be all-electric by 2031, and Shasta’s five Motiv trucks now make up half of their fleet. The trucks are now in operation across local routes in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys.

With the delivery and deployment of the Motiv-powered vehicles in late 2023, Shasta has already driven 9,600 miles and reduced an estimated 15,800 lbs. of tailpipe emissions, and saved $4,800 on fuel costs, the fleet reports.

“Community and sustainability go hand-in-hand for the team here at Shasta, and electrifying our fleet with the Motiv vehicles brings us one step closer to cultivating a cleaner and greener environment,” said Noël Hammer Richardson, president and CEO of Shasta Linen Supply. “With funding and incentives available to help us go electric, we’ve experienced that Motiv’s electric trucks are quieter, cheaper to maintain, and easier to operate than the gasoline trucks they replace. From a business perspective, it’s the best thing to do.”
