Proterra Inc. and El Dorado National-California (ENC), a subsidiary of REV Group, and a manufacturer of heavy-duty transit, airport and university buses and emissions-free technology, has announced a new collaboration to power ENC’s second-generation electric transit buses with Proterra’s battery technology.

Under the multi-year supply agreement, Proterra will supply its S Series battery system to power ENC’s Axess battery electric bus (EVO-BE) that will be available to transit agencies in 32-, 35-, and 40-ft. models. Delivery of the first Proterra Powered ENC Axess EVO-BEs is expected to begin in 2023.

“Public transit is at the forefront of electrification. Along with our partners at ENC, we’re delighted to help power this critical transformation with our battery technology and help bring cleaner air to cities and towns across the United States through zero-emission transportation,” said Chris Bailey, president of Proterra Powered & Energy, Burlingame, Calif.

“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.

Developed with safety as a guiding principle, Proterra Powered said its battery systems are designed and manufactured in the United States, have industry-leading energy density for commercial vehicle applications, and undergo rigorous testing to withstand the toughest operating conditions.

Proterra said its battery systems have been proven through more than 30 million service miles driven by Proterra transit vehicles and selected by commercial vehicle manufacturers to power zero-emission electric delivery vehicles and work trucks, semi-trucks, construction and mining equipment, school and coach buses and low-floor cutaway shuttles.
