Proterra was founded in 2004 with a vision to design and manufacture world-leading, advanced technology heavy-duty vehicles powered solely by clean domestic fuels. It was developed to deliver the “bus of tomorrow” and meet a need expressed by the Federal Transit Administration. With the launch of our fast charge EcoRide™ BE35 battery electric bus, Proterra has become the leading innovator of zero-emission commercial vehicle solutions. Proterra’s products help transit agencies deliver clean, quiet running, rider and neighborhood-friendly vehicles that also meet government regulations and local mandates. In fact, we are currently recognized by the California Air Resources Board as the first company that is currently delivering a full-size transit vehicle that meets California’s Zero Emission Bus Rules.
