Battery Electric Cutaway Chassis
A battery-electric solution enabling zero-emissions performance in an extensive range of market segments. E1 is based on a dependable, proven cutaway package, but with better durability & efficiency, and simplified maintenance
A familiar platform gets even easier to utilize with the advantage of EV packaging, and lower operating costs with reduced maintenance. With 158-inch (4,013mm) or 176-inch (4,470mm) wheelbases available, E1 also has the flexibility to meet your upfitting needs.
With 113kW of energy storage, and proven by over 20 million miles of service, Optimal’s partnership with Proterra provides our products with the best performance & reliability, all from right here in the USA.
With 280 kW of propulsion on tap and 1700Nm of instant EV torque, the S1LF can reach a top speed of 70mph (112kph) and has 30% gradeability*.

Another first in the industry: our products feature 100% of the power electronics, including the battery, motor, driveline, motor controllers, and power/cooling lines, in between the chassis rails while also protecting the vehicle’s critical components.
Our years of experience in automotive engineering have also taught us how to design for an optimized user experience. Enabled by quieter electric propulsion, optimized ride dynamics and body design, and quality materials, our products enjoy lower NVH levels (noise, vibration, harshness) that benefit both passengers and workers.
Nothing is more comforting than familiarity. Except for the smooth, quiet power delivery of EV propulsion in an optimized chassis. With E1, you can have both, with an electric powertrain silently integrating with the convenience of OEM instrument cluster & controls
