The Next-Generation Drivetrain for the Proterra ZX5 Electric Bus

January 11, 2023

As the Proterra team continues to innovate and improve on our product offerings, we are excited to introduce ProDrive 2.0, the next-generation base drivetrain for the Proterra ZX5 battery-electric bus. The ProDrive 2.0 drivetrain gives the ZX5 faster acceleration, stronger hill climb, smoother and faster shifting, and greater efficiency for longer range. The Proterra ZX5 electric bus can climb steeper hills with ProDrive 2.0, boasting a maximum launch grade of 27.9%, a significant improvement over the previous max launch grade of 21.6%. Proterra’s new generation drivetrain not only enables the ZX5 electric bus to climb steeper hills, it also allows the ZX5 to power up hills at a faster speed. ProDrive 2.0 is the standard base option for Proterra ZX5 electric buses and is now available for all 40-ft and 35-ft models of the ZX5.
