We are all aware that the demand for commercial electric vehicles has consistently grown not only across the United States but the entire world.
Proterra Inc., which is a leading innovator in commercial vehicle electrification technology, has planned to open a new manufacturing plant in South Carolina that will produce industry-leading battery systems for its customer’s commercial EVs, which will include work and delivery trucks as well industrial equipment, buses and more.
The company has ensured to pump $76 million with an additional investment planned for the next several years.
Through this development, the company expects to create more than 200 jobs over the next few years at the battery system production plant, which is spread across an area of 327,000 square feet.
The factory will be operational from the second half of next year and will have multiple gigawatt-hours of annual production capacity for Proterra’s battery systems.
In another three years, the factory is expected to further support the additional production capacity of battery systems.
