Commercial EV innovator Proterra (NASDAQ: PTRA) will provide its battery technology to El Dorado National (ENC), a subsidiary of the REV Group, to power ENC’s second-generation electric transit buses.
Under a new, multi-year supply agreement, Proterra will supply its S-Series battery system to power ENC’s Axess Battery Electric Bus (EVO-BE), which will be produced in 32-foot, 35-foot and 40-foot variants. Delivery of the first Proterra Powered ENC Axess EVO-BEs is expected to begin in 2023.
Proterra says its battery systems have logged over 30 million service miles, powering electric delivery vehicles, work trucks, semi-trucks, construction and mining equipment, school and coach buses, and low-floor cutaway shuttles.
“ENC is excited to work with Proterra to provide the next-generation Axess EVO-BE with best-in-class battery technology as part of our ongoing focus on delivering zero-emission transportation solutions,” said Jason Moore, Vice President and General Manager, ENC.
