Via Motors Vtrux extended-range electric pickup

The E-REV powertrain by VIA Motors enables larger 4WD vehicles, including SUVs and light trucks, to drive the first 40 miles in all-electric mode with near zero emissions, and a full range of 400 miles on a single fill-up. For most drivers, this means over 100 mpg in typical local daily driving. It’s exciting to drive-with more torque, the Electric Truck outperforms the gas version.
LOS ANGELES, CA– In a press conference on the main stage of the LA Auto Show, automotive legend Bob Lutz made history once again to announce the start of production of the world’s first full size, four-wheel-drive, electric pick up trucks and vans by VIA Motors. Mr. Lutz, is well known for championing extended range electric technology while at General Motors, preferring it over hybrid or all-electric technology, particularly in full size vehicles, where fuel savings from electrification can quickly overcome the incremental cost.
