CBS Evening News features Proterra
Proterra, Inc. was featured last Friday on the CBS Evening News. CBS Investigative Reporter Anna Werner visited Proterra during a visit to South Carolina to report on its “SmartState Initiative.”
The SmartState Program invests in talent and infrastructure at South Carolina’s three research universities, including Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) in Greenville, SC to drive economic development. SmartState supports research in areas that will help companies grow, attract new business to the state, build a technology-rich economy, and create more opportunities for South Carolina residents.
With its headquarters and manufacturing in Greenville, SC, Proterra is a designer and manufacturer of heavy-duty electric drive systems, energy storage systems, vehicle control systems, transit buses and fast-charging stations. Proterra’s designs have led to the EcoRide, the world’s first full-size, 10-minute charge transit bus.
