…I connected with the team from VIA Motors, and they took me outside to drive their electric cargo van. The drive experience was great — plenty of power with no shift lag, quiet operation, very good turning radius, ergonomically friendly, and major-OEM-rivaling fit and finish. I did have to keep in mind I was only driving a prototype.
It got me thinking — getting behind the wheel of an electric vehicle is what will really drive EV fleet adoption. Delivery drivers will fight over who gets the electric van for the day. And they’d never want to go back.
