Proterra Inc., a leader in CV electrification technology, has signed a multi-year supply deal with The Shyft Group to use Proterra’s industry-leading battery technology to power their Blue Arc.
Purpose-built electric delivery van as well as EV chassis. Proterra Powered battery technologies are intended and developed in the United States and also have industry-leading energy density for commercial vehicle applications.
The Proterra Powered H-Series battery system intends to give the Blue Arc electric delivery van a range of 150 to 175 miles on a single charge, with the possibility to increase the range by adding more batteries.
Proterra battery systems have a configurable design that gives commercial vehicle makers more options.
The Blue Arc electric delivery van and EV chassis are powered by a tiny H-Series battery system that fits between the truck frame rails. Proterra battery systems are developed with safety devices built right into the battery design and undergo extensive testing to resist the harshest environments, in addition to having industry-leading energy density.
Proterra’s battery systems have been used to power zero-emission electric delivery vehicles, work trucks, semi-trucks, and others for more than 25 million miles driven by Proterra Transit vehicles.
The Blue Arc delivery van happens to be a 100% battery-electric Class-3 commercial delivery vehicle developed for last-mile delivery fleets with a high frequency of deliveries. By the middle of 2023, the first Blue Arc delivery vans should be on the road.
