Cyngn to Partner with Motrec, Launch Fleet of AI-Powered Autonomous Tuggers


Cyngn, Inc. (the “Company” or “Cyngn”) (Nasdaq: CYN), a developer of AI-powered autonomous driving solutions for industrial applications, today announced its partnership with Motrec International Inc, a globally recognized manufacturer of industrial electric vehicles. The industrial vehicle manufacturer will integrate Cyngn’s DriveMod into their fleet of autonomous tuggers.

As part of this partnership, Cyngn will bring its fully autonomous DriveMod solution to Motrec’s MT-160 tow tractor, a powerful and versatile electric vehicle designed for efficient and safe heavy-load towing operations. By integrating Cyngn’s AI-powered autonomous vehicle technology, the MT-160 will be transformed into an intelligent, self-driving vehicle capable of safely and autonomously hauling goods through complex commercial and industrial environments.

“We are excited to announce this significant milestone in expanding DriveMod to another vehicle form factor,” said Lior Tal, CEO of Cyngn. “Motrec’s vehicles have already gained the trust of major industry players like General Motors, Tesla, Ford, and Chrysler, demonstrating their ability to meet the needs of some of the biggest organizations in the world. Their reputation for manufacturing high-quality industrial vehicles aligns perfectly with Cyngn’s commitment to helping organizations tap into future-facing technologies and bring reliable autonomous solutions to their facilities.”

“By joining forces with Cyngn, we are reinforcing our commitment to innovation while also meeting the evolving needs of our customers who have been actively seeking automation solutions,” adds Blair McIntosh, President and CEO, of Motrec International. “Motrec’s MT-160 tow tractor, known for its robustness, durability, and maneuverability, offers an industry-leading 6,000 lbs. of stable towing power. We are excited to bring DriveMod to our tuggers, enhancing our ability to deliver long-lasting products that will take productivity to the next level.”

With the global tow tractor market revenue valued at $1.96 billion in 2022 and expected to reach $2.88 billion by 2028, the introduction of the autonomous DriveMod Tugger will help transform hauling workflows. By leveraging the latest in AV technology for tasks like transferring goods and delivering supplies, organizations can reduce safety risks and allow their workforce to focus on more valuable tasks. This shift ensures worker safety while optimizing efficiency and increasing overall productivity in material handling operations.

Cyngn’s autonomous fleet of vehicles reaches new heights with the integration of Motrec tow tractors and stock chasers, further enhancing their capabilities and performance.
