July 28, 2013 – EBMag has learned Via Motors is taking pre-orders on its website for VTrux cargo or 12-passenger vans for delivery before year-end. (CHECK OUT our Work Truck Show 2012 video HERE). The pickups and SUVs will be available in the new 2014 GM 1500/2500 platforms beginning Q1/Q2 2014. Via encourages you to check out its Life Cycle Savings Cost Calculator to learn more about vehicles that promise all the power of a gas-powered fleet vehicle with the fuel efficiency of an electric. Recharging daily, the average driver should expect to refill the gas tank less than 10 times/year rather than once a week, boasts Via. The 2014 VTrux fleet has an MSRP of $79,250, boasts a 1500-lb payload capacity, 402hp electric motor and fuel consumption of 2.5L/100 km.
