Proterra unveils zero emission bus in California

Posted on February 9, 2009

Proterra, a manufacturer of clean commercial transit solutions from city transit buses to class 4 through 8 trucks, kicked-off its first ever California Clean Bus Tour in San Jose, Calif., with the unveiling of its zero emission, fast-charge battery-electric transit bus.

 

The EcoRide BE35 is designed to help communities significantly reduce air and noise pollution while dramatically reducing vehicle operating costs.

 

After the initial launch, Proterra will make stops in selected California cities including Los Angeles, Sacramento and San Francisco. The company will meet with energy, environmental and municipal stakeholders as it introduces its clean transit solutions to help the state meet its emission reduction goals.

 

The EcoRide BE35 results in up to a 400 percent improvement in fuel economy, and up to $310,000 savings in total lifetime fuel expenses as compared to a conventional diesel bus, and more than $15 million in savings for a transit bus fleet of 50.
