USA: Via Answers Verizon’s Call For Electric Trucks

Verizon is jumping on the Via Motors bandwagon. Mind you, the maker of burly electric extended-range electric vehicles (EREVs) for heavy-duty work has a modest-sized bandwagon, consisting of Pacific Gas & Electric. The California power utility partnered with Via way back in 2008 to develop EREVs and already owns two of the trucks, which provide mobile, onsite power to help manage electrical outages.

The Verizon deal was announced at the National Work Truck Show earlier this month. It calls for the two companies to work together on the development and demonstrate of Verizon vehicles using Via’s technology, with an eye toward possible wider deployment in Verizon’s vehicle fleet.
