Affordable and Clean Energy
JBPCO is deeply committed to ensuring the availability of safe, affordable and environmentally friendly commercial vehicles. This commitment is evidenced by our significant investment of dollars, time and resources dedicated to the development of next generation of electric and alternative powered work trucks.
Climate Action & Sustainable Communities
With transportation being the largest end-use of energy in developed countries, JBPCO recognizes the importance of our role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality. That’s why JBPCO is committed to taking urgent action to combat climate change by innovating zero-carbon commercial vehicles and making commercial electric vehicle platforms more accessible for mainstream use. We are continuously striving to develop sustainable solutions that will reduce the environmental impact of commercial vehicles. We believe our focus on advancing EV/AV technology will also contribute to the creation of inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable communities.
We understand that the success of the next generation of commercial vehicles hinges on their ability to meet the unique needs and demands of businesses and fleets. That’s why we prioritize serviceability – the development of lighter-weight bodies to offset EV battery weight and increase available payload, increase distance to reduce range anxiety and create innovative upfits for diverse businesses.
Safety is also a top priority, and we strive to enhance visibility and pedestrian protection and reduce driver distractions in our next generation vehicles. We utilize advanced technology to assist operators and improve ease of use through better ergonomics, visibility and safety systems.
