Proterra unveils new Catalyst E2 series at APTA Annual

Monday at the American Public Transit Association’s (APTA) Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, Proterra unveiled the newest addition to its fleet of zero-emission vehicles: the Catalyst E2 series, named for its unprecedented Efficient Energy (E2) storage capacity of 440 kWh to 660 kWh.

Last month, an E2 series vehicle achieved a new milestone at Michelin’s Laurens Proving Grounds where it logged more than 600 miles on a single charge under test conditions.

Proterra unveils new Catalyst E2 series at APTA Annual

Its nominal range of 194 miles to 350 miles means the Catalyst E2 series is capable of serving the full daily mileage needs of nearly every U.S. mass transit route on a single charge and offers the transit industry the first direct replacement for fossil-fueled transit vehicles. The high-mileage Catalyst E2 series joins the existing Catalyst FC and XR series vehicles, designed for circulator and intermediate-mileage routes, respectively.

2.6 Million Miles and Counting
With annual sales already 220% higher than 2015, Proterra is experiencing a breakthrough year in the mass transit sector and expects the debut of the Catalyst E2 series to only further magnify this success. Doubling production in 2017 to serve unprecedented customer demand, Proterra will have both of its manufacturing lines in full operation in Greenville, S.C. and the City of Industry, Calif. To date, Proterra buses across the U.S. have completed over 2.5 million miles of revenue service, displacing 540,000 gallons of diesel and eliminating nearly 10 million pounds of carbon emissions.

REV Group to unveil newly designed Krystal at BusCon 2016

Krystal, a REV Group brand, is rolling to Indianapolis with an all-new revamped looked for September’s BusCon 2016. The new design falls on the heels of Krystal’s relocation to Imlay City, Mich., home to one of REV Bus Group’s production facilities. During BusCon from Sept, 19 to 21, REV will showcase this all-new redesigned luxury bus at Booth #727.

The 2017 Krystal has been redesigned from the inside out. Partnering with Premier Products, known for the high-level safety in belted coach seating, REV will introduce its own custom seat design, featuring a unique

stitching pattern that is exclusive to Krystal and REV sister brand Federal.

And because entertainment features are key in the luxury bus market, the 2017 interior will feature a drop-down TV, located near the front of the bus, as well as upgraded luggage racks with TV monitors. To reduce clutter, a custom audio/visual cabinet hides electronics, as well as a trash receptacle.

Outside, Krystal’s new molded fiberglass exterior features a new front cap with large panoramic forward observation windows, and sticking to Krystal’s luxury standards, the passenger entry door will continue to offer standard electric-slide operation. REV will display a Krystal KLX 40-foot model on a Freightliner S2C chassis during BusCon, featuring a 34-passenger capacity with rear luggage.

In addition to Krystal, REV Bus Group will display four other buses, including the Federal Spirit and its BusCon reveal of an all-new fiberglass cap to coincide with the luxury brand’s redesigned logo. The new front cap features lights molded into the design, along with a reimagined slope that accommodates a front-viewing window, now standard.

REV Group will also unveil its all-new World Trans brand, an economic addition to the company’s bus portfolio, plus an all-new Champion LF Transport model, a medium-duty, low-floor transit bus on a cutaway Ford F-550. In addition to REV Bus Group’s newest products, three-time Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves will stop by the 4,250 sq. ft. booth for a visit, and the display will feature the REV-branded No. 3 Chevrolet...................  READ MORE >
