Proterra introduces ZX5 electric bus with 738 kWh of energy

Proterra Inc. is increasing the amount of energy onboard its purpose-built ZX5 electric transit bus – delivering more battery storage to help transit agencies scale zero-emission bus fleets with electric vehicle technology.

Starting in 2023, the 40-ft. Proterra ZX5 Max electric transit bus can be equipped with up to 738 kWh of onboard energy. With 738 kWh of battery energy storage, the company says the ZX5 Max can deliver more than 300 miles of drive range on a single charge, depending on route conditions, configuration and operation.

In addition, the 35-ft. and 40-ft. ZX5+ electric bus models can be equipped with up to 492 kWh of onboard energy for routes with less demanding range requirements.

Designed and manufactured in the U.S., Proterra’s electric transit buses are equipped with the company’s Proterra Powered battery technology systems. By increasing the amount of onboard energy from the ZX5’s original energy levels, this announcement reinforces how Proterra is continually innovating on its best-in-class battery technology to deliver industry-leading EV solutions for the commercial vehicle market.
