Pegasus orders 2,000 Class 3 chassis from Via Motors

The US electric commercial vehicle manufacturer Via Motors has received an order from Pegasus Specialty Vehicles for 2,000 Class 3 electric cutaway chassis cabs. With these, Pegasus will build electric school buses, minibuses and shuttles and distribute them through its dealer network comprised of 56 locations in the US.

The contract is worth $170 million, which is currently worth around 176 million euros. According to Brian Barrington, president of Pegasus Specialty Vehicles, the company’s primary strategic goal is to bring “new, innovative and unique bus solutions” to the market. “Our advanced bodies, mounted on these reliable, fuel-efficient and customizable chassis will truly be a game-changer in the markets we’re focused on.”

The VIA chassis features, an all-wheel drive and a low floor height. The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicles is between 12,500 and 14,000 pounds. The electric motors are said to generate 294 kW of continuous power and be capable of carrying a payload of 7,000 to 8,200 pounds (about 3,175 to 3,719 kilograms) with a range of 180 miles (about 290 kilometres).

Via Motors is in a pending transaction with Ideanomics. Last year, Ideanomics announced the acquisition of Via Motors for 450 million US dollars, but according to the most recent information, the acquisition has not yet been completed.
