"The collaboration with Verizon has quickly resulted in new innovations in its fleet, and we look forward to demonstrating the robust durability and economy of VIA's technology in the field," said Alan Perriton, president of VIA Motors. "Verizon's dedication to green fleet solutions is setting an example for companies that seek to reduce the environmental footprint and operational costs of their fleets."Overall, VIA anticipates the Verizon electrified work vehicles should improve fleet fuel economy by up to 300 percent while cutting emissions in half or more. The vehicles have up to 40 miles of all-electric range, using technologically advanced lithium ion batteries, with the added capability to drive additional miles by using VIA's onboard electric generator, or "range extender." The vehicle can be charged overnight from a typical 110-volt household outlet for as little as $1 a day in some states.
