Proterra unveils new electric city bus with 560km range

There’s a new city bus option available to operators in the U.S. that will run on pure electric power for up to an impressive 550 kilometres (300 miles) on a single charge.

The new Proterra Catalyst E2 Series has just been unveiled at the American Public Transit Association (APTA) Annual Meeting.

Proterra say their new offering boasts a storage capacity of 440 - 660 kWh and in recent testing they managed to achieve more than 600 miles (1100 km) on a single charge!

Ryan Popple, CEO of Proterra, says the Catalyst E2 series is capable of serving the full daily mileage needs of nearly every U.S. mass transit route on a single charge.

“The question is no longer who will be an early adopter of this technology, but rather who will be the last to commit to a future of clean, efficient, and sustainable mobility.

“With the Catalyst E2 offering a no-compromise replacement for all fossil fuel buses, battery-electric vehicles have now broken down the final barrier to widespread market adoption.”
