“The new headquarters gives the company room to grow and hire new employees, and continue to design cutting edge power electronics that allow truck and bus manufacturers to add zero-emission vehicles into their portfolio of alternative fuel options,” states a release.

In addition to Foster City, Motiv operates a manufacturing facility in Hayward, Calif. The facility produces the entire suite of controllers for Motiv’s All-Electric Powertrain.

A Growing List of Customers

At full capacity, Hayward can turn out controllers for 480 all-electric powertrains annually, supporting a growing demand for electric trucks and buses across the U.S.

Motiv’s Hayward manufacturing facility was made possible thanks to $2.3 million in grant funding from CEC, the California Energy Commission. Motiv’s all-electric powertrain components are used in electric vehicles by partners including Morgan Olson, California Truck and Equipment, Creative Bus Sales, Rockport, TransTech Bus, and Cumberland Servicenter.
