A Dependable Solution for Electric Commercial Trucks
Committed to being at the forefront of vehicle electrification, ROUSH CleanTech and Proterra have partnered to combine proven EV technology and an iconic Ford chassis for an electric commercial truck you can depend on. The next-generation ROUSH CleanTech F-650 Class 6 electric commercial truck will support a variety of end user applications including box trucks, airport GSE, utility truck, shuttle bus, and many more.
The Proterra Powered Ford F-650 by ROUSH CleanTech has a fully electrified powertrain with no tailpipe emissions, creating a more sustainable future in trucking and contributing to improved air quality. With proven battery technology and less moving parts than a combustion engine vehicle, this electric commercial truck also offers lower operating costs and simplified maintenance.
ROUSH CleanTech will integrate its control systems with Proterra’s proven battery technology to leverage Ford’s medium-duty chassis and Proterra’s battery technology for a durable and dependable commercial electric truck. This purpose-built Class 6 electric commercial truck is available in several configurations, with an estimated range of 125 miles on a single charge while supporting an available payload of nearly 8,500 lbs.
Built on Ford’s industry-leading F-650 chassis, the vehicle will be equipped with a Proterra
registeredH Series battery system which is ideal for packaging between the vehicle frame rails. In addition, the companies will collaborate on continued fleet electrification, including charging and an ecosystem of solutions that will make the transition to electric more seamless for fleets.
The goal of our collaboration is to remove any and all barriers to help fleets transition to a cleaner future. It’s clear the market is looking for trusted brands like ours to develop innovative technologies while also supporting the entire lifecycle—from vehicle design and development, to infrastructure assistance, after-sales customer support, and more.
