USA: Utah company builds Volt-like pickup truck

VIA Motors of Orem, Utah has built an extended range electric pickup truck that works in a way similar to a Chevrolet Volt. It is now being tested by, appropriately, a Utah power company.

VIA Motors, which is famously backed by Bob Lutz, the former General Motors icon who is widely considered the “father” of the Chevrolet Volt and who sits on the VIA Motors board of directors, has produced a range-extended electric vehicle (RE-EV) called the VTRUX. The truck is being tested by a Utah power company, Rocky Mountain Power.

At a press conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, representatives of the two companies showed off the heavy duty pickup truck sporting Rocky Mountain Power logos and an electric lightning storm logo shaped like the Rocky Mountains. RMP will use two of the pickups for four months to evaluate their performance versus their gasoline and diesel counterparts in the power company’s fleet of over 1,000 vehicles.
