Proterra has rolled out the world’s fastest electric bus with catalyst E2 max that can go 1,102.2 miles on a single charge.
The test was confirmed by Proterra and was conducted at Navistar proving grounds in Indiana.
“For our heavy-duty electric bus to break the previous world record of 1,013.76 miles — which was set by a light-duty passenger EV 46 times lighter than the Catalyst E2 max — is a major feat,” said by Matt Horton, Proterra’s chief commercial officer.
The E2 max even hides a 660KWH battery in a 40-foot bus.
“Early electric bus adopters like our first customer, Foothill Transit, have paved the way for future heavy-duty applications, like motor coaches and commercial truck,” Proterra CEO Ryan Popple said. “As we see incumbents and more companies enter the heavy-duty EV market, it has become very apparent that the future is all-electric, and the sun is setting on combustion engine technology.”
