Driving on Electricity
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.
Efficient Battery Use
With 75% of drivers averaging less than 40 miles a day, most electric vehicles carry extra weight in costly batteries—VIA has optimized its battery pack, carrying only what’s needed for most days. VIA’s E-REV truck generates its own electricity on longer trips using the onboard range extender.
The New E-REV Powertrain from VIA Motors
Designed for how we drive
With 40 miles of battery range, most drivers won’t burn any gas in a typical day. Driving 50 miles in a day, 40 miles on batteries and 10 miles with the help of the range extender, the typical driver would average about 100 miles per gallon in gas fuel economy. When driving over 200 miles in a day, the E-REV truck still gets significantly better fuel economy than the gas version.
Better gas fuel economy than a Prius™ with the payload of a pickup
VIA’s E-REV powertrain is ideal for America’s fleets, cutting fuel costs by up to 75%, while dramatically reducing petroleum consumption and emissions. Recharging daily, the average driver could expect to refill the gas tank less than 10 times a year rather than once a week. It offers all the advantages of an electric vehicle, without range limitations. Working with vehicle manufacturers, VIA is now delivering E-REV trucks to government and utility fleets.
The powertrain works in a variety of vehicles
VIA Motors E-REV Powertrain, powered by Symetron SmartDrive™ is applicable to a large variety of light trucks, SUVs and delivery vehicles. VIA Motors’s E-REV powertrain was designed to work in popular light trucks such as the GM Silverado, the Ford F-Series, and the Dodge Ram series trucks.
Charge It Up
Use a standard outlet, or charge faster with a 240 volt outlet or charging station.
Driving in all-electric mode costs approximately 6 cents a mile. In addition, you can qualify for up to $20,000 in incentives from state and federal governments, depending on where you live.
Or Gas it up
The vehicle only uses gas when you drive beyond the capacity of the batteries. VIA’s new Extended-Range Electric Vehicle (E- REV) drives up to 40 miles on batteries then continues up to 300 miles. It generates its own electricity using a small fuel-efficient gas-powered generator or “range extender” when needed.
Exportable power for the work site
An extended-range electric work truck comes with an optional onboard inverter that can be used in place of a tow-behind generator to power the workplace or provide emergency power. Some fleet customers say that with VIA’s E-REV work trucks, its almost like getting a free truck with their mobile generator!
