In the several years prior to the formation of Vantage Power, two young engineers – Alexander Schey and Toby Schulz – built the world’s longest range electric car, and set a record by driving the longest road in the world — the
26,000km Pan-American Highway.
Not content with stopping there, Alex and Toby teamed up again in 2011 to start Vantage Power. Over the following eight years the company grew from two to a highly experienced and skilled team of 25, with a laser focus on developing highly innovative
electrification and connectivity technologies.
Along the way, a number of industry firsts were achieved using Vantage Power technology, including the world’s first fleet of retrofitted hybrid buses – which entered service in London in 2017 – and a unique 25t triple-axle hybrid bus.
In April 2019, Vantage Power was acquired by Allison Transmission – a global provider of commercial vehicle propulsion solutions. As a wholly owned
subsidiary of Allison, Vantage Power is able to combine the strength and worldwide footprint of a major tier 1 supplier with the speed and agility of a high-tech growth company. Together we are united in our goals of delivering exceptional value to
our customers and improving the way the world works.
