An efficient, zero-emission vehicle for last-mile delivery

Proterra has partnered with Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) to develop the MT50e, a new all-electric delivery truck chassis. Built on FCCC’s legendary MT platform, the MT50e is powered by Proterra’s advanced EV technology, proven through more than 13 million miles in service. With 226 kWh of energy storage capacity and more than 125 miles of driving range, the MT50e is ideal for zero-emission last-mile delivery.
