Proterra electric city bus that recharges in 10 minutes!

I have already posted about this bus with a link to Jay Leno’s garage.  Theses buses are real, and have been used for the last year in a city in California.  They have 2 that run 24 hours a day there.  And they recharge in 10 MINUTES!  Let me say that again, 10 FREAKIN’ MINUTES!!!!

  1. Each bus is custom built to the routes and access to the quick charging stations. Why add more batteries that cost money and add weight for range you don’t need when you can charge in ten minutes during shift changes or normal route waiting periods? Electric is best for stop / start city driving, not long highway runs to vegas or wherever.

    1. As i said in my post about Astonbus, I think it is horses for courses. The Proterra may work in bigger metropolitan areas tat can afford the recharge stations and different and slower routes. But the Astonbus may be a better solution for a place like Bangor, ME (where I went to school) where a bus that can go all day might be the better solution. Also, the Astonbus may make for a very nice coach.
