Motiv Power Systems has introduced the EPIC (Electric Powered Intelligent Chassis) all-electric family of chassis. According to Motiv, the EPIC all-electric chassis are production line-ready, drop-in replacements for the equivalent ICE chassis and are available for a wide range of medium-duty body applications including walk-in vans, box trucks, school buses, shuttle buses, work trucks and specialty vehicles. As a zero-emissions offering, the EPIC family of all-electric chassis qualify for regional and national incentive and subsidy programs including Volkswagen settlement funding, the company noted.

“Since 2009, Motiv has been dedicated to taking the guesswork out of adding all-electric vehicles to existing fleets. Moving from providing powertrain kits to manufacturing complete electric chassis is a natural evolution for us,” said Jim Castelaz, founder and chief executive officer of Motiv Power Systems. “With the debut of the EPIC chassis family, fleet buyers and operators seeking un-compromised performance and functionality, together with dramatically reduced operating and servicing costs, now have a streamlined path towards that goal.”

Benefits of the EPIC chassis include universal charging compatibility and secure remote telematics and diagnostics, the company noted. EPIC has received Ford’s qualified vehicle modifier approval (EQVM).

“With nearly ten years of operations, and with more than 350,000 miles logged in major national fleet deployments, Motiv’s powertrain offerings have established a well-deserved reputation for reliability and scalability. These traits are also exemplified in the new EPIC chassis family as a turnkey, all-electric chassis,” said Kash Sethi, director of sales at Motiv. “With EPIC, fleets can select chassis optimized for their specific range, payload, and route requirements. By providing an all-electric offering for fleet applications, Motiv now closely mirrors the long-established procurement process for internal combustion engine powered chassis.”
