Motiv’s expanded relationship with Cintas follows the successful pilot of seven Motiv-powered vehicles across three states in 2022. The new order of 30 Motiv trucks will be deployed on existing Cintas routes. What’s more, this new order brings the number of Motiv-powered EVs in the Cintas fleet to 37 vehicles driving daily routes nationwide across Michigan, New York, and California.
“We’re proud to support Cintas in every area of the relationship, whether it’s procuring funding for vehicles, meeting with the field team for ongoing training and program improvements, driving operational cost savings and ultimately freeing their fleet from fossil fuels,” said Tim Krauskopf, CEO of Motiv Power Systems. “This next step in our relationship shows the future of commercial fleets is a promising one — where we work together to leave a lasting impact on the industry and environment at large.”
Since the initial pilot program, Motiv has helped Cintas reduce tailpipe greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 37 metric tons — in line with the company’s broader Electric Vehicle and Alternative-Fuel Vehicle Strategy.
Cintas operates one of the largest corporate fleets in North America with almost 14,000 commercial vehicles deployed throughout the United States and Canada. In recognizing the importance of transitioning its fleet, Cintas works with manufacturers like Motiv Power Systems to procure and deploy additional EVs around its business footprint to beat internal sustainability targets.
Cintas’ deployed and new order of electric delivery vehicles are built on Motiv’s EPIC5 platform, the market-leading platform for delivery vans. Motiv’s EPIC chassis utilizes a proprietary hardware and software EV platform, which provides optimized vehicle performance and efficiency, and enables an even easier pathway to electrification for fleets of the future.
