Remy, Inc.’s Electric Motor Division and VIA Motors have announced a joint agreement to supply powertrains for the VIA Extended-Range Electric Vehicle (eREV).
VIA offers a full lineup of extended-range electric trucks, vans and SUVs called VTRUX, each equipped with the company’s eREV powertrain. The eREV powertrain enables the VTRUX to drive up to 40 miles in a full electric near zero emission mode achieving an equivalent 100 MPG.
VIA plans to ramp up production significantly over the next three years to satisfy demand for clean, fuel-efficient full-size trucks and SUVs. We are looking forward to Remy providing a 300 kW Traction Motor and a 150 kW Generator which, when matched with our own inverter, provides a ground breaking powertrain for our vehicle.—Kraig Higginson, CEO of VIA Motors
Remy’s patented HVH electric motor platform (earlier post) has powered more than 100,000 vehicles with over 2 billion kilometers of proven reliability. The HVH 250 is in SUV’s, trucks and commercial vehicles all over the world.
