VIA Motors has announced an exclusive voucher program for the Chicago area’s fleet and business owners.
The new program will dramatically reduce the initial costs of owning a VIA Motors extended range pickup truck, extended range electric passenger van, or extended range electric cargo van.
VIA Motors develops and manufacturers “the cleanest, most economical work vehicles on the planet.” Incorporating a proprietary power train, the V-DRIVE, into new OEM vehicles, VIA Motors sells units directly to fleets under the VTRUX brand name. VIA VTRUX offers up to 40-mile battery range and unlimited extended range. Contrary to popular belief, these electric vehicles perform just as well, if not better, than traditional gas models. With more low-end torque, the VIA VTRUX offer better fuel economy than most internal combustion engine models when past the battery range.
The extended range electric vehicles from VIA Motors are also already eligible for the $7,500 Federal Tax Incentive, offering a great value to business and fleet customers. To offer additional assistance to Chicago commercial buyers, VIA Motors has announced the Drive Clean Chicago voucher program. To be eligible for the Drive Clean Chicago voucher program, the commercial vehicles must be used within the Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will counties.
Currently, three vouchers are available to significantly boost cost-effectiveness when purchasing a new VIA VTRUX model. The VIA Motors Extended Range Electric Pickup is now eligible for a $41,200 voucher, while the Extended Range Electric Passenger Van can be purchased with a voucher for $39,460. The VIA Motors Extended Range Electric Cargo Van is also eligible for a voucher of $42,892.
The Drive Clean Chicago program is designed to promote clean air and better business solutions for the area. By offering multiple commercial voucher opportunities, VIA Motors and Drive Clean Chicago hope to quicken the adoption of advanced vehicle technologies for commercial trucks and vans. With the cost of alternative fuel vehicles reduced, Chicago fleet owners will see economic gains while fostering a sustainable future for the area’s transportation system. Combining the Drive Clean Chicago voucher with the Federal Tax incentive allows Chicago fleets and business owners to purchase VIA Motors technology with nearly the same price as a standard model vehicle.
