An electric bus has broken a world record by travelling more than 1,000 miles on a single charge in the US.
The feat was achieved on 4th September when Proterra’s Catalyst E2 travelled 1,101.2 miles on one charge – in New Carlisle, Indiana.
The battery used for the journey had 660MWh of energy storage capacity.
Matt Horton, Chief Commercial Officer said: “We have been waiting for this opportunity for a long, long time. This is going to completely change the game for public transit. Not only are the vehicles really cost-effective but now they can handle any route out there.”
The previous record of 1,013.76 miles was set by a light-duty passenger electric vehicle 46 times lighter than the bus.
