The broad portfolio of Stewart & Stevenson allows fleets to have the security of seamless and consistent service and support across all their fleet assets, be it diesel, gas or electric.

Trusted fleet service provider Stewart & Stevenson has teamed up with Unique Electric Solutions (UES), a leading manufacturer of electric powertrains for Class 4-8 vehicles, to bring the UES uniqueEV® electric drivetrain conversion to fleets.

The trend towards electrification of commercial vehicles is rapidly increasing. Benefits include cleaner, quieter, and dramatically lower cost operation. However commercial fleet operators can face challenges procuring new electric vehicles, including high upfront costs, long production waits, or lack of a suitable vehicle for their vocation. The UES uniqueEV® electric drivetrain retrofitted to their existing on-road vehicles presents a dramatically lower cost, quicker, and less disruptive path to the benefits of battery electric propulsion.

In business over 100 years with a service footprint in 11 states, Stewart & Stevenson is the ideal service provider for a fleet to get their truck or bus converted from diesel to electric power. In addition to their full equipped shops, on-road service is available as well. Michael Backman, VP Sales & Marketing for UES said, “The broad portfolio of Stewart & Stevenson allows fleets to have the security of seamless and consistent service and support across all their fleet assets, be it diesel, gas or electric.”

Richard Rewerts, VP of the On-Highway Business for Stewart & Stevenson said, “We endeavor to provide our fleet customers with the highest asset uptime and lowest cost of operation. The UES battery electric conversion helps us do that.”
