    Bob is a bright guy and I think he'll spearhead successes for VIA Motors. I've heard Tesla may be also planning to release a truck sometime in the next 5 years, the difference being that it will be 100% electric, so the overhead of having a gasoline engine range extender, as the VIA Motors lineup does, will be gone.

    The VIA trucks do have some interesting capabilities due to the serial hybrid arrangement. A VIA pickup can be used as a portable generator with 220V and 110V output. Very handy for a contractor.
