Motiv Power Systems has deployed nine electric box trucks with Community Resource Project (CRP).
The electric trucks will be deployed in greater Sacramento to provide home energy audits, weatherization and HVAC services to low-income residents. Motiv’s Ford eQVM-approved Electric Powered Intelligent Chassis (EPIC) E-450 chassis were outfitted with work truck bodies by Rockport Commercial Vehicles and purchased through South Bay Ford.
Funding for the electric vehicles (EVs) and charging infrastructure comes from the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD), California Air Resources Board (CARB) and Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD). The vehicles have gone through pre-delivery inspection at Motiv’s newly opened Stockton service center, which will also serve as the base for any repairs or maintenance.
