About us

Vantage Power is a technology company focused on developing powertrain electrification, hybridisation and connectivity technologies for heavy-duty vehicles around the world. 

Since 2011, the team has grown into a highly specialised and experience-rich group of engineers and professionals, and has developed truly world-class battery pack and control system technologies, deeply integrated with a unique and proprietary internet-of-things (IoT) telemetry system that gives vehicle manufacturers, operators and service staff the most comprehensive and actionable vehicle intelligence on the market.

Our technologies have been applied to heavy-duty vehicles as part of both retrofit and OEM hybrid and electric applications, as well as off-vehicle applications such as grid energy storage, and we are tremendously excited to support these industries with our class leading technologies.

Vantage Power was founded by Alexander Schey and Toby Schulz in 2011, both having been active in the electric and hybrid vehicle space since 2007. Prior to forming Vantage Power, Alex and Toby set a world first by driving the longest road in the world - the Pan-American Highway - in an electric car they built in 2009/10. This pioneering, can-do spirit is what started Vantage Power, but is also what characterises our team today.
