Go the Distance with the New Proterra® ZX5 Electric Bus
Proterra vehicles are powered by the best battery systems for heavy-duty transportation. Designed and manufactured in-house in Silicon Valley by the best minds in battery engineering, Proterra batteries are lightweight, compact, safe and powerful.
The best EVs on the road have been built with purpose in mind. Proterra redesigned the bus from the ground up with a vehicle body made of a composite material that’s lightweight, durable, and easy to maintain.
Proterra EV charging systems are designed with heavy-duty electric fleets in mind, with a range of power levels, universal connectors, plug-in and overhead options, and flexible layout options for space-constrained depots.
The Proterra APEX™ connected vehicle intelligence system is a cloud-based data platform, offering historical and real-time performance information about your battery electric vehicle fleet, to optimize bus and charging operations and reduce costs.
Proterra's high-performance drivetrains maximize performance and are easy and inexpensive to maintain. The DuoPower™ drivetrain delivers nearly twice the horsepower and five times the efficiency of a standard diesel engine.
Proterra is taking transit on a new route
Proterra vehicles have proven themselves through more than 15 million miles of service in communities across North America, operating at a lower overall cost than a 35- or 40-foot diesel, hybrid, or CNG transit vehicle.
