This morning, Proterra Inc. rolls out the first electric bus made at its Greenville plant. State leaders will be on hand to see the 35-foot, black and white battery-powered vehicle..
Proterra president Jeff Granato says the firm expects to start work on a new assembly plant at the I-CAR campus in the coming year. For the future he would really like to see the buses purchased and used in South Carolina.
The Proterra CU-ICAR Greenville plant could make up to 1,500 buses by 2015.
