Proterra will provide battery technology to power ENC second-generation electric transit buses. Under a new, 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-foot, 35-foot, and 40-foot models. Delivery of the first Proterra Powered ENC Axess EVO-BEs is expected to begin in 2023.

The cooperation involves, on one side, the California-based zero emission (and powertrain technology) manufacturer, and on the other side ElDorado National (California) or ENC, a subsidiary of REV Group and an industry leader in heavy-duty transit, airport and university buses and emissions-free technology.
