Verizon and VIA Motors announced that they will collaborate to develop and demonstrate plug-in electric work vehicles using VIA's eREV (extended range electric vehicle) technology and evaluate the technology for possible wide-scale application into Verizon's fleet. The announcement was made at the National Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, where VIA demonstrated an "electrified" pickup truck and cargo van, two of the most widely used vehicles in Verizon's fleet. Both vehicles use VIA's eREV powertrain technology, enabling them to drive a majority of their daily work routes emission-free and entirely on electric power. The vehicles have up to 40 mi (64 km) of all-electric range, using lithium-ion batteries, with the capability to drive additional miles using VIA's onboard electric generator or range extender.
