XTRUX Live in Detroit

XTRUX Live in Detroit

VIA Motors is now what we'd consider a mainstay in the auto show scene.

VIA typically wheels out something to show off to the press/public at the various auto sows hosted within the US.

The 2014 Detroit Auto Show was no exception.

Here we see the VIA Motors XTRUX pickup, which was first unveiled at last year's NAIAS by Bob Lutz. XTRUX is a 800Hp, 4WD, up to 100 mpg, 35-mile electric range plug-in pick-up truck.

This truck fills us with envy, so we figured why not focus on lens on it again.

The XTRUX is the meaner cousin of the VIA Motors VTRUX.  The XTRUX has not been fully confirmed for production.
