    KleanBus, a pioneer in bus repowering since 2021, has announced the next phase of its business growth with the launch of KleanDrive, an umbrella company under which it will offer its game-changing electrification technology across the entire transportation industry.

    The KleanDrive identity will evolve and expand KleanBus’ strategic focus of bus repowering to now include all modes of vehicles where carbon-emitting combustion engines can be replaced with its clean, electric powertrain solution. This will include, but is not limited to, current and future light commercial vehicles, heavy-duty vehicles, and marine vessels.

    Joe Tighe, CEO of KleanDrive said: “The launch of KleanDrive is a natural evolution of our business and innovative technology, reflecting our forward-thinking approach and our commitment to explore new opportunities that extend beyond the bus industry. This is the next step on our journey where our primary goal remains unwavering: to accelerate the transition to zero-emission vehicles for the betterment of our planet and all its inhabitants.”

    “Our mission is transforming transport and with our innovative repowering technology offering a quick, cost-effective and sustainable shift to zero-emission, KleanDrive is ideally positioned to be the go-to solution provider in response to the urgent need to decarbonise across challenging and high-impact sectors.”

    This significant business milestone reflects the UK company’s growth and success since launching as its commitment to sustainable transportation solutions accelerates. The KleanDrive brand is accompanied by new logo and website launch with a .earth domain that represents its founders’ passion of saving the planet.

    KleanDrive’s game-changing repowering technology has been a revelation in transforming heavy polluting diesel buses and will continue to do so in this mission, operating under the  KleanBus arm of the business. Now, it will enable clients from all transport applications to replace diesel engines with its advanced ‘ePowertrain Module’ solution for a fully electric powertrain that represents the quickest and most cost-effective path to a zero-emission fleet. Its technology is created from locally-sourced components, where feasible, tailored to meet the unique needs of each client’s application and is manufactured to the highest OEM quality industry standards.

    With an efficient upcycling and testing process after the development of an initial prototype, KleanDrive’s solution minimises disruptions and reduces operating costs to a fraction of those associated with buying and building brand new electric vehicles. This makes it an ideal choice for fleet operators seeking a swift and sustainable transition from diesel to electric, all without prohibitive costs.

    KleanDrive is driven by a team of passionate experts and advisors with a combined wealth of 150 years of experience who are deeply committed to preserving the environment and promoting sustainable transportation solutions. Through this experience, passion, and new direction, the launch of KleanDrive marks the beginning of an exciting journey into a new era of sustainable mobility, where KleanDrive is poised to be at the forefront of driving positive change.
