VIA Van First to Come to Market and First to Pass Independent Crash Tests
Quietly, VIA Motors wheeled out its EREV van for it in-service debut at the recent Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
The van provided "private VIP electric shuttle van services to filmmakers and guests in association with Heretic Films."
VIA Motors provides world's first 100mpg electric shuttle van services to filmmakers, VIP's and celebrities at Sundance Film Festival.
Heretic Films founder Burton Richie stated:
"We were very pleased to be the first to provide electric shuttle services to our VIP guests here at Sundance. VIA's clean electric vehicles echoes our strong commitment to the environment and we hope that this event will aid in their eventual adoption worldwide."
How did VIA's EREV van handle the up and down mountain runs? Here's what VIA CEO John Weber says:
"We have been extremely pleased with the van's performance at the festival, running up and down the 10,000 foot mountain day in and day out with a full payload of passengers. The festival provides us with the perfect opportunity to let filmmakers and the media see for themselves that electric vehicles are "ready for prime time" in almost any type of duty."
Commercial fleets can place an order for VIA's EREV van today. Deliveries will begin in earnest before Q1 of 2014 comes to an end.
