Australia's road transport fleet with tomorrows technology, today.
Janus Electric breakthrough technology utilises current electrical infrastructure to create a 100% carbon zero solution for electrifying Australia's road transport fleet using renewable energy.
How It Works
Janus Electric's revolutionary exchangeable batteries power electric heavy vehicles which can be changed in four minutes at a Janus Electric Charge & Change Station - powered by renewable energy sources like solar or wind.
Janus Electric’s ground-breaking battery technology has been developed by professional engineers and transport operators, who are dedicated to providing Australian road transport businesses with a smarter, safer and cleaner alternative, placing Janus Electric at the forefront of the next phase of road transport globally.

Significant Cost Reduction
At the core of every transport and logistics business is the daily management of operating costs and margins. Fleet electrification will revolutionise existing operating costs and deliver significant proven savings to the bottom line over a vehicles lifetime.
The Janus fleet electrification solution will provide for up to a 60% reduction in maintenance and operating costs over the vehicle's lifetime. Electrification means no oil changes, no oil filters, no air filters, no fuel filters, and a massive reduction of heat also extends the life of brakes and tyres. Operationally fleets are also cheaper to run as the cost of electricity is cheaper than diesel per km.
COST PER KM DIESEL 0.96
COST PER KM JANUS ELECTRIC $0.33
Not adapting to new electrified fleets means transport companies running on traditional diesel fleets will be left behind by energy and cost-efficient electrical fleet operators. In Australia, we estimate that by 2030 50% of the Australian Road Transport fleet will be electric.
The Janus battery technology is a game-changer as the fleet owner is not locked into one type of battery cell technology. As new technology is developed, the Janus Electric battery has been created to be fully upgradable with new emerging battery technology.
We estimate the current Janus battery cell technology will have a life of up to 8 years.
When lithium cells are no longer the preferred current technology, the Janus system is fully upgradable with emerging battery technology.
Cleaner Work Environment
The full automation of the transmission and removal of the diesel engine means the vibration, noise, and harmful fumes from the drivers operating environment have been removed, which has positive benefits on driver well-being and for all road users.
100% Carbon Zero
Our viable next-generation battery technology delivers a world first zero-carbon solution for the electrification of road transport fleets. The Janus Electric technology features a battery that can be charged utilising renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and hydro. This creates a demand for renewable energy during the day which means better utilisation of the national electricity grid, which offers utility providers and governments significant return on green technology infrastructure.
As the batteries are not permanently fixed to the truck, they can be charged at any Janus Electric Charge and Change Station in four minutes. The Janus (patent pending) Change & Charge Statio utilises renewable energy to provide a three-way system - grid to battery, battery to battery, and battery to grid. This enables renewable energy to be fed back into the grid, assisting to balances and minimise surges and outages.
Convert Existing Vehicles
The impossible has been made possible by the Janus Electric technology! Existing fleets can be converted with our electric battery technology. Janus is able to convert any existing prime mover turning it into an electric vehicle utilising our patented change & charge system. This significantly reduces the need for capital investment in completely new vehicles.
Note: Converting - The process of replacing existing machinery or parts that were not there when it was built. Janus trucks convert existing diesel engine trucks due for a rebuild or replacement, with a new electric motor at a comparative cost to rebuild an existing diesel motor.
It’s estimated converting existing diesel-powered trucks with Janus Electric technology can reduce capital costs by up to 70%.
*Current modelling has continually shown Janus can deliver the manual convert process in a week; with automation, we believe this can be reduced even further.
Janus Electrification Ecosystem
To date, the development, building, testing and initial proof of concept have been undertaken by a dedicated team of Australian developers. Following initial sponsor and road fleet operator interest, there are now major partnership and investment opportunities available within the investment and infrastructure categories below.
We aim to complete further extensive road tests of the prototype vehicle and commence converting a further four electric vehicles that will be put into service with Australian fleet operators by mid-2021 to provide more conclusive evidence to support the electrification process.
In addition to the Janus fleet, we have joined with Qube and Oz Minerals with the Vision Electric partnership, where the Janus technology will be put to the test in an ambitious world-first 12-month trial to use battery electric trucks for heavy haulage across long distances.
Aitken Mount Capital Partners has been engaged to manage the partnership. For all Janus investment enquiries Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Janus Electric provides a complete A to Z solution that allows Fleet Operators to cost-effectively undertake mass electrification of their entire fleet with a supporting change and charge infrastructure, which will eventually support their operating requirements nationally. If you are a fleet owner seeking to be a leader in moving to green technology, please get in touch.
Battery innovation is at the core of the Janus Electric model. We would love to hear from green venture energy funds keen to invest in battery technology that directly reduces carbon emissions in the transport industry.
Change & Charge Station
Traditional energy providers in the transportation industry have the opportunity to become new green energy providers utilising our change and charge patented battery system. If you are an operator of fuel infrastructure in key locations, we would welcome an opportunity to meet with you.
Truck Conversion Specialists
It is our aim that dealership networks and mechanical workshops will be able to actively self-convert from diesel combustion engines to the patented Janus electrification system and we are keen to develop providers with this capability nationally. We are happy to outline this opportunity further to any interested providers.
Janus Electric facilitates partnership opportunities between the transportation industry and suppliers of electricity from all alternative sources such as solar, wind and hydro.
If you are an existing electricity provider keen to participate in the market for the supply of electricity to the transportation industry, we welcome the opportunity to meet and outline our vision.
Like the dealership networks for truck conversion, there are ongoing opportunities for dealerships and service centres to provide ongoing mechanical support. We see this as a unique opportunity to provide maintenance for emerging technology in the national transportation industry and are keen to chat with national service providers.
The Road Test
Operating proof of the Janus Electric system was quietly undertaken back in 2020 via full conversion of a T403 Kenworth to the Janus Electric drive technology. As well as the valuable numerical data generated, there was broad enthusiasm from all who drove or participated in the testing.
Our electric prototypes are being put to work.
We’re having our Australian developed technology road tested with four transport operators in local and linehaul applications across Qld and NSW. Subscribe below for upcoming announcements and news.
We took a T403 Kenworth powered by ISX Cummins Diesel Engine.
Removed the original engine and converted it with the Janus system
Now we're putting it to the test!

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does the battery module last?
Currently, the Janus Electric battery lasts between 400 to 600kms with a Battery life of up to 8 years.
When is this technology going to be commercially available in Australia?
Janus Electric completed trials in early 2022 and can now convert your Diesel Class 8 Prime Mover to Electric as of April 2022.
Why did you choose a Kenworth for testing and can you electrify any prime mover regardless of make, model or age?
Janus Electric chose the T403 Kenworth as it best suited the current engineering prototype. Any Class 8 Prime Mover can be converted regardless of make or model. We aim to work on trucks that have been built in the last 10 years due to the electrical infrastructure on the vehicle
How does the charging work?
It takes 4 minutes to swap out a Janus Electric Battery (as opposed to 20 minutes to refuel a diesel-powered vehicle). The batteries are placed in a charge station located in key locations and swapped out for a ready-to-go battery located in the charge station. The Janus Electric software manages the time availability of charged batteries.
