Proterra EV Bus With Electrifying Appearance
In April, Proterra delivered four electric buses to Reno, Nevada. The delivered buses are the older version, not the new Proterra Solution unveiled in May.
But still, their outward appearance is electrifying, don't you think?
According to media reports, the total cost of the four vehicles is $4.6 million, but this includes the high power charging station for charging in less then 10 minutes. The Regional Transit Commission expects to save up to $500,000 over the life of the vehicles, as compared to diesel buses.
"U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., praised the cooperation between various agencies to secure a $4.6 million grant for the buses based on the promise of reducing pollution and improving public transit. They emit zero emissions and can be fully charged within 10 minutes at a special charging station at the downtown transit center"
