Motiv Power Systems introduces new all-electric truck

The medium-duty truck features a 150-200 mile range LFP battery.

Motiv Power Systems announced the new Argo Series electric truck, designed to support all medium-duty applications across Class 4-6 — including box trucks, step vans, shuttle buses, refrigerated vehicles, vocational vehicles and other specialties — and includes a 150-200 mile range LFP battery. 

“Argo combines our proven powertrain technology with a new driver-centric cab,” Tim Krauskopf, CEO of Motiv Power Systems said. “In California for example, the Advanced Clean Fleet Rule is set to go into effect on January 1, 2024, and the state needs roughly 20,000 new zero-emission medium-duty EVs on the road by the end of 2024. The Argo Series will help meet the growing demand of many companies waiting for an EV solution capable of supporting a wide range of applications.” 

According to Motiv, key design features of the Argo include:

  • Energy efficiency;
  • Command seating position;
  • Safety;
  • Thermal performance.

Motiv said Argo Series vehicles are currently available for pre-order and will be on the road in late 2024. Argo vehicles will be manufactured in the U.S. and are eligible for the IRA tax credit and as well as select incentives programs.
