VIA Motors thrilled truck owners at the LA Auto Show this week with the unveiling of a solar panel bed cover option called the SölTRUX for VIA’s extended range electric pick up trucks. Truck owners often purchase an accessory sometimes referred to as a “tonneau top” to cover and secure the cargo in the bed of a Pick Up truck. VIA’s solar bed cover integrates high capacity solar panels which plug into VIA’s proprietary power train and charging technology allowing the panels to charge the truck when parked or driving. VIA’s SölTRUX™ solar panel bed cover can add up to 5 to 10 miles of additional electric range on long sunny days, depending on panel capacity and the availability of the sun.
