Proterra launches program to help OEMs build EVs for commercial fleets

California-based electric bus maker Proterra has launched a new
program, Proterra Powered, to help automakers manufacture their own electric
fleet vehicles.

Proterra designs and manufactures battery systems, electric
drivetrain technology, and standardized, heavy-duty charging systems for commercial
vehicle applications. As part of Proterra Powered, Proterra will provide OEMs
with the electrification hardware as well as design consulting, engineering
services and integration, service support, training, and charging
infrastructure implementation.

Proterra has already partnered with Daimler, Belgian coach maker Van Hool, and British bus maker Alexander Dennis to introduce battery-electric vehicles powered by Proterra technology. Proterra and Thomas Built Buses, a US-based school bus manufacturer, have unveiled a new electric school bus, the Saf-T-Liner C2 Jouley.

Proterra CEO Ryan Popple said, “As more OEMs adopt EV technology
for their vehicles, Proterra is uniquely positioned to be the best
electrification partner because of our years of experience testing and evolving
our battery system, drivetrains and charging systems through the deployment of
our Proterra Catalyst transit vehicles, with vehicles on the road all across
North America.”
