Proterra, a start-up company for electric vehicles, has developed a bus that is capable of doing 1100 miles on a single charge.
According to the company, the Catalyst E2 Max electric bus did nothing less than 1,101.2 miles on a single charge in Indiana. This is also a world record for the longest distance traveled by an electric vehicle on a single charge.
However, for record the statistics would be verified by the concern authorities.
“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 Matt Horton, Proterra’s chief commercial officer.
“This record achievement is a testament to Proterra’s purpose-built electric bus design, energy-dense batteries, and efficient drivetrain.”
Catalyst E2 Max is capable of carrying maximum passengers upto 40 with a maximum speed of 65 mph. Interestingly, the bus can be recharged completely in approximately five hours.
With such amazing figures, it is very much possible that most city buses might get replaced with these ones.
