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.

Unlike solar options previously contemplated for smaller cars that can often only generate enough power to run small accessories, the large full size panels in VIA’s solar bed cover for a Pick Up truck can provide enough power to charge the main batteries and add significant additional range or power for jobsite work tools.

VIA Motors chief marketing officer David West said, "This much solar charging really wasn’t available until we electrified the pick up truck, which offers enough real estate to accommodate full-size, high-capacity panels."
