X-Truck variant will feature 800 hp

VIA Motors has announced plans to introduce three new range-extended electric vehicles at the North American International Auto Show.

Details are limited, but the company says they will unveil a 12-passenger van, a luxurious four-wheel drive crossover and a high-performance pick-up truck. The latter model sounds intriguing as there will be an X-Truck variant with four-wheel drive and 800 hp (597 kW).

In a statement, VIA Motors President Alan Perriton said "These three new offerings demonstrate VIA's commitment to electrify the top-selling vehicles that use the most gas and can therefore benefit the most from converting to low-cost electric fuel, while at the same time, reducing more emissions to benefit the communities they serve."

VIA Motors to Unveil Three New Full Size Electric Vehicles at the North American International Auto Show

ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwire - Dec 20, 2012) - VIA Motors announced today that Bob Lutz, father of the Chevy Volt and automotive industry icon, plans to unveil three new full size electric vehicles by VIA Motors at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 14, 2013. The ground-breaking extended range (eREV) electric vehicles to be unveiled include a high-performance 4WD pick-up truck with an 800 horse-power option called the "X-Truck," a technology-packed, luxury class 4WD SUV, and the first-ever extended range electric 12-passenger van, for ride-share and shuttle applications. Earlier this year, VIA introduced the world's first extended range electric (eREV) pick-up truck, and cargo van that will begin production in 2013 for fleet sales.

"These three new offerings demonstrate VIA's commitment to electrify the top-selling vehicles that use the most gas and can therefore benefit the most from converting to low-cost electric fuel, while at the sametime, reducing more emissions to benefit the communities they serve," said VIA's president Alan Perriton.

VIA works with OEM partners to build electric versions of popular vehicles using VIA's technology, enabling full-size trucks, vans & SUVs to drive like the top selling Chevy Volt, allowing them to perform the same duty as a conventional vehicle, while capturing huge operational savings that can pay for the vehicle over time.
