Savana powertrains: 6.6L Duramax diesel
The available Duramax turbo-diesel V-8 delivers best-in-class torque and horsepower. Known by its “LGH” engine code, it is rated at 260 horsepower (194 kW) and 525 lb-ft of torque (711 Nm).

The LGH Duramax was designed with a robust EGR cooling system, along with revised turbocharger tuning that helps enhance EGR performance. It also has a large-capacity selective catalytic reduction system. In fact, the engine features the latest in emission control technology, making it the cleanest Duramax engine ever produced. NOx emissions are controlled via a Selective Catalyst Reduction aftertreatment system that uses urea-based Diesel (Emission) Exhaust Fluid (DEF). The DEF is housed in a 5.83-gallon (20 L) tank and needs to be replenished about every 5,000 miles (8,000 km). Electrically heated lines feed the DEF to the emission system to ensure adequate delivery in cold weather.

The Duramax also includes GM’s second-generation diesel particulate filter system. Unlike most competitors’ systems, the Duramax regenerates its diesel particulate filter using a downstream injection of diesel fuel directly into the exhaust stream and can travel up to 700 miles (1,125 km) between regenerations – a 300-mile (482 km) increase over the previous Duramax engine. The use of downstream injection also helps improve engine life by eliminating concerns regarding the possibility of diesel fuel contaminating engine oil, which can happen when fuel used for regeneration is introduced directly into the cylinder. 

The Duramax also provides outstanding cold-weather performance, with  microprocessor-controlled glow plugs capable of gas engine-like start performance in less than three seconds in temperatures as low as -20 degrees F (-29 C), without a block heater. The engine has been developed to operate for at least 200,000 miles (322,000 km) on a rough-duty cycle without the need for a major overhaul; and it is backed with a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.


A fuel-operated heater also is available for vans equipped with the Duramax 6.6L to provide heat quickly to the vehicle interior in cold weather. The seamlessly integrated system is designed into the Express chassis, saving customers the time and labor of upfitting an aftermarket system. The electronically controlled, fuel-operated heater operates automatically, turning on and off within parameters that include outside air temperature, fuel level, coolant temperature and whether the engine is running. It features a self-contained, pressurized auxiliary coolant heater (with a surge tank) that uses diesel fuel to generate up to 17,200 Btu/h (5 kW) of heating energy.

The Duramax engine is backed by GM’s Hydra-Matic 6L90 heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission.

Savana powertrains – gas engines
GMC Savana offers a choice of two gas engines: a standard 4.8L V-8 rated at 285 horsepower (213 kW) and 295 lb-ft of torque (400 Nm) and an available 6.0L V-8 rated at 342 horsepower (255 kW) and 373 lb-ft of torque (506 Nm). Each is part of GM’s legendary small-block engine family and designed for quiet operation, including:
•    Special friction-reducing polymer coating on piston skirts
•    Full-floating piston pins
•    Damping patch on the oil pan (externally mounted)
•    Timing chain tensioner
•    Quiet alternator.

Backing the engines’ quietness is the assurance of long-lasting performance. The engine family was validated under extreme conditions, with the 6.0L engine dynamometer-tested to the equivalent of 200,000 miles – 50,000 miles more than other engines in the family. The engines also feature many long-life engine components that can reduce maintenance intervals and costs. The iridium-tip spark plugs, engine coolant, accessory drive belt and sealing gaskets are some of these items.

Some of the stringent durability testing included cycling engines between the peak torque and peak horsepower rpm points – the equivalent of towing a heavy trailer up a steep grade – for 600 straight hours.

The engines are mated to the Hydra-Matic 6L90 six-speed automatic and a fast-idle option makes it easier to run accessories at a work site.

The 6.0L is also offered in a special version with hardened valve seats for the available dedicated compressed natural gas models – the industry’s only CNG vehicles that are fully integrated at the factory, crash tested and backed by GM’s 60,000 mile/five-year transferable powertrain limited warranty.
(Certain commercial and government fleet customers receive the 5 year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty.)

Two systems are offered:
•    A three-tank system (RPO code UFM) provides a range of up to 200 miles and allows the complete use of the cargo area
•    A four-tank system (RPO code UFP) provides a range of up to 300 miles, with the additional tank in the driver’s side of the cargo area, just inboard of the wheel well.

Savana chassis and suspension
The Savana is built on a strong, ladder-type full frame architecture. The frame features fully boxed sections for greater strength and rigidity, while extended and tapered front frame rails are used for improved crashworthiness. Also, additional tubular frame cross members are used to increase torsional stiffness.

All models feature an independent short-long arm (SLA) front suspension, with a 35mm front stabilizer bar. Two-stage, semi-elliptic multi-leaf springs are used in the rear suspension and help locate a semi-floating axle.

Additional chassis and suspension features include:
•    Hydroboost four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and dynamic rear proportioning 
•    StabiliTrak electronic stability control is standard on all models
•    A locking rear differential is available
•    31-gallon (117.3 L) fuel tank is standard on all models (except for dedicated compressed natural gas package)
•    8,600-pound GVWR on 2500 models
•    9,600-pound / 9,900-pound GVWR on 3500 models.

Savana safety and crash-avoidance features
Savana is equipped with a host of safety features, including six standard air bags: frontal, head and side curtain, and thoracic air bags, which provide a higher level of protection in the event of a side impact or a vehicle rollover.

Additional standard safety features include:
•    StabiliTrak electronic stability control system
•    OnStar with Turn-by-Turn navigation
•    Tire pressure monitoring
•    Flat and convex exterior mirrors (for a wider field of vision)
•    Four-wheel anti-lock disc brake system with Hydroboost
•    Daytime running lamps.

Vehicle Maintenance to Conserve Fuel


A comprehensive vehicle maintenance strategy can help fleet managers and drivers conserve fuel. Your fleet may already rely on these practices to ensure vehicle efficiency.

Proper Tire Inflation

Properly inflated tires last longer and increase fuel economy. Every decrease in pressure by 1 pound per square inch for four tires can decrease fuel economy by 0.3%. Some fleets use nitrogen inflation, tire pressure monitoring systems, and other technologies to maintain optimum tire pressure.
Recommended Motor Oil

Fleets can improve fuel economy by 1% to 2% using the manufacturer's recommended grade of motor oil. For example, using 10W-30 motor oil in an engine designed to use 5W-30 can decrease fuel economy by 1% to 2%. Similarly, using 5W-30 in an engine designed for 5W-20 can decrease fuel economy by 1% to 1.5%.

Motor oil labeled "Energy Conserving" in the performance information contains friction-reducing additives that improve fuel economy.
Engine Tune-Ups

Tuning a neglected vehicle or fixing one that failed an emissions test can increase fuel economy by 4% based on the repair type and quality. Repairing a serious problem, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, can increase fuel economy by 40%.

Nearly two-thirds of the cab is made of high-strength steel, while shear-style body mounts are used to tune out both up-and-down and side-to-side movement for a quiet, comfortable ride. Double and crew cab models have a set of hydraulic body mounts to further isolate the cabs.

The instrument panel has an intuitive six-gauge cluster. Standard models include a 3.5-inch driver information center display in the middle of the instrument cluster, with a 4.2-inch color driver information center display, for vehicle and infotainment data, standard on SLE, SLT and Sierra Denali. Ambient lighting highlights all functional areas, such as the “4x4” and headlamp switches, as well as the radio, for easier viewing at night.

All models have extensive interior storage, tailored to the way customers use their trucks. The center console – available on vehicles with front bucket seats – offers nearly 1 cubic foot (24.5 liters) of combined storage space, with the depth and width to conceal a laptop computer. Additionally, the locking console accommodates hanging files for owners who use their truck as a rolling office, as well as controls for overhead ambient lighting, map pockets along the side, movable cup holders and reconfigurable compartments. It also includes five USB ports, two 12-volt power points, a 110-volt outlet and a cord management system, allowing owners to leave their phone charger plugged in for quicker access when it’s needed, but remains concealed and without a dangling cord when it’s not. Plus, there’s a location on the console designed specifically for cell phone storage.

The fold-down center armrest on standard models and other models equipped with the 40/20/40-split bench seat offers covered storage and connectivity, with two USB ports and two 12-volt power points.

New wireless phone charging allows compatible phones to be charged without having to connect or disconnect wires or cables. It is available on SLE and SLT double cab and crew cab models with standard bucket seats; and it is standard on Sierra Denali.

Connectivity includes IntelliLink with new phone integration technology, OnStar 4G LTE
Upgrades and enhancements for 2016 include an all-new radio with a 7-inch-diagonal color touchscreen that’s available on the base-model 1SA trim and an 8-inch system offered on higher trim levels and equipment packages.


Both radios offer improved system speed and performance, faster, more accurate map loading, faster service reprogramming and redesigned navigation interfaces, including a quick list of recently browsed points of interest, point of interest country grouping, last destination screen and visual landmark indication with map guidance (on navigation radios only). The 8-inch radio offers enhanced voice command execution, while the new 7-inch radio uses pass-through voice recognition synched with the user’s phone.

Also new for Sierra 7-inch and 8-inch radio systems is Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability. Each provides simple and smart use of smartphones in the vehicle, integrating certain phone functions onto IntelliLink’s color touchscreen and allowing users to call up music, navigation apps and more via compatible phones.

IntelliLink with the 7-inch display is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The 8-inch system – standard on SLE, SLT, All Terrain and Denali models (with navigation available) – features Apple CarPlay compatibility at the start of the model year. Android Auto capability is scheduled to be available on the 8-inch system later in the model year.

Apple CarPlay takes the iPhone features customers want to access while driving and puts them on the vehicle’s display in a smart, simple manner. This allows drivers to make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music right from the touchscreen or by voice via Siri. Apple CarPlay-supported apps include Phone, Messages, Maps, Music and third-party audio apps. A full list of those apps can be found at Apple.com/ios/carplay. Apple CarPlay is compatible with iOS 7.1 or higher.

Android Auto is built around Google Maps, Google Now and the ability to talk to Google, as well as a growing audio and messaging app ecosystem that includes WhatsApp, Skype, Google Play Music, Spotify and podcast players. A full list of supported apps is available at g.co/androidauto. Android Auto requires a phone running an Android Lollipop 5.0 operating system or above.

Using either application is simple. A “Projection” icon on the IntelliLink screen is visible when a phone is not connected, then changes to indicate CarPlay or Android Auto when a compatible phone is connected via USB.

Compatible apps need to be downloaded to a phone before using. Apple and Google’s privacy statements and terms of use apply. Data plan rates may also apply.

Complementing IntelliLink to enhance Sierra’s connectivity is OnStar 4G LTE with a Wi-Fi hotspot. It provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected. The hotspot supports up to seven mobile devices and is on whenever the vehicle is on and comes with a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial. It is available on the 1SA and standard on SLE, SLT and Denali models.

At the time of purchase, six months of an OnStar Guidance plan includes all of OnStar’s advisor-based safety and security features, including Automatic Crash Response and Stolen Vehicle Assistance, as well as turn-by-turn navigation.

Five years of a subscription-free OnStar Basic Plan includes RemoteLink Key Fob Services, allowing owners to remotely start and lock/unlock a car (if properly equipped), and activate the horn and lights from anywhere with a data connection. It also includes OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics, which runs monthly checks of a vehicle’s engine, transmission, anti-lock brakes and more, and Dealer Maintenance Notification, which sends diagnostic report directly to a preferred dealer simplify service scheduling.

Proven Duramax turbo-diesel
The Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel is available across the lineup and has proven itself with a strong record of performance, capability and durability. It led the industry with first-in-class common-rail fuel injection and aluminum heads with a six-bolts-per-cylinder design.

It is rated at 397 horsepower (296 kW) at 3,000 rpm and 765 lb.-ft. of torque (1,037 Nm) at 1,600 rpm, contributing to their tremendous capability – including a maximum towing rating of 23,200 pounds on Sierra 3500HD. Horsepower is reduced slightly for some commercial chassis cab models.

Architectural features include a rigid cast iron cylinder block with induction-hardened cylinder bores; four-bolt, cross-drilled main bearing caps; forged steel, nitride-hardened crankshaft; aluminum pistons with jet-spray oil cooling; aluminum cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder; water-cooled turbocharger; integrated oil cooler and a charge-cooled turbocharging system.

The Duramax’s variable vane geometry turbocharger makes downhill towing less stressful, with an integrated exhaust brake system. Matched with the Allison 1000 transmission, it creates added backpressure in the exhaust, resulting in negative torque during deceleration and downhill driving, enhancing driver control and prolonging brake pad life.

The Duramax also provides outstanding cold-weather performance, with  microprocessor-controlled glow plugs capable of gas engine-like start performance in less than three seconds in temperatures as low as -20 degrees F (-29 C), without a block heater.  

Advanced emission control technology makes the Duramax one of the cleanest diesels in the segment. NOx emissions are controlled via a Selective Catalyst Reduction aftertreatment system that uses urea-based Diesel (Emission) Exhaust Fluid (DEF), which is housed in a 5.3-gallon (20 L) tank and needs to be replenished about every 5,000 miles (8,000 km). Electrically heated lines feed the DEF to the emission system to ensure adequate delivery in cold weather.

The system also incorporates GM’s second-generation diesel particulate filter system. Unlike most of the competition, the Duramax regenerates its diesel particulate filter using a downstream injection of diesel fuel directly into the exhaust stream and can travel up to 700 miles (1,125 km) between regenerations. The use of downstream injection helps improve engine life by eliminating concerns surrounding the possibility of diesel fuel contaminating engine oil, which can happen when fuel used for regeneration is introduced directly into the cylinder. 

Allison 1000 transmission
The Allison 1000 backs the Duramax engine with features that support its tremendous torque with driver-control features that make hauling and towing easier – including the smart exhaust brake system. It features a class-first range selection function, which allows the driver to easily select the desired gears to match driving conditions, such as towing a trailer on a steep grade.

The Allison 1000’s six-speed configuration also contributes to greater efficiency, with lower engine speed on the highway. Both the fifth and sixth gears are overdrives (turning slower than engine speed), with a sixth-gear ratio of 0.62:1. A lower cruising rpm also contributes to a quieter interior on the highway.


Additional features include:
•    Power take off – It offers 250 lb.-ft. of torque for excellent performance in PTO applications, such as snowplows. There are two locations (right- and left-hand sides of the transmission) for PTO accessories – such as hydraulic pumps – to be attached on the transmission
•    Driver Shift Control – This feature allows the driver to manually select and hold a gear to satisfy a variety of driving scenarios. The easy tap-up/tap-down shift control holds the desired gear, but also protects the engine by inhibiting downshifts when the engine speed is above allowable rpm limits.
•    Tow/haul mode – The driver-selectable tow/haul mode provides greater driver control and trailering performance in certain conditions, such as steep grades. When engaged, shift schedules are optimized so that the system locks the torque converter earlier to minimize heat gain and to take greater advantage of engine braking when vehicle is traveling downhill.
•    Cab warm-up (elevated idle) – In certain low-temperature circumstances, the engine speed is raised and the transmission increases the load on the engine, allowing the engine to produce heat quicker and warm up the truck’s interior faster. The idle speed varies with the engine coolant temperature and the normal idle resumes when it reaches 154 degrees F (68 C). The feature is also enabled when the engine is started via remote starting.
•    Easy maintenance – The Allison 1000 has an easily removable, spin-on filter with a long, 60,000-mile change interval. Another internal filter is rated for the life of the transmission. Some competitors’ transmissions offer longer filter change intervals, but require more intensive, time-consuming change procedures that include removing the oil pan.

Smart exhaust brake system
The highly integrated, driver-selectable exhaust brake system uses the compression power of the Duramax engine to improve vehicle control and reduce brake pad wear. When the exhaust brake is engaged in cruise mode, exhaust cruise grade braking will help the cruise control system maintain the desired vehicle speed when travelling downhill, keeping the driver from having to apply the brakes and exit cruise control to maintain speed.

When the exhaust brake is engaged in non-cruise mode, the transmission and the exhaust brake deliver the correct amount of braking to assist in vehicle control, regardless of vehicle load. The system provides more engine braking with this feature for a heavier vehicle, for example.

Exhaust grade braking is one of the best examples of the Duramax engine and Allison transmission working as a seamless powertrain unit. It is a smart system that varies the amount of brakes needed for the vehicle, load and grade. The engagement of the system is smooth and quiet, while its performance enhances the driver’s feeling of control.

V-8 power is standard
The standard engine in all 2500HD and 3500HD models is the proven 6.0L FlexFuel V-8, which can run on gas, E85 or a mixture of both. It’s rated at 360 horsepower (268 kW) and 380 lb.-ft. of torque (515 Nm) on gas. It is also offered in a bi-fuel version and is rated at 301 horsepower (225 kW) and 333 lb.-ft. (452 Nm) on CNG.

The 6.0L is part of the legendary small block engine family, which was introduced in 1955. All iterations share basic architectural cues, including 4.400-inch cylinder bore centers and cam-in-block valve actuation. It is a simpler, lighter and more-compact design than many overhead-cam engines, with intrinsic attributes well-suited to the performance heavy-duty truck customers demand – particularly torque that’s developed early and maintained over a broad rpm range.

In fact, approximately 90 percent of peak torque available at only 2,000 rpm, for confidence and ease of operation with a full load or trailer, particularly on steep grades. Additional engine highlights include:
•    Deep-skirt iron cylinder block with cross-bolted main caps for strength, durability and refinement
•    High-flow aluminum cylinder heads that help produce more power and sustain longer across the rpm range
•    Polymer-coated pistons with full-floating wrist pins that offer lower friction, for greater performance and efficiency
•    Steel camshaft for long-term performance and durability
•    Steel roller rockers add stiffness, allowing greater engine speed with less vibration
•    Hydraulic roller lifters reduce friction for greater efficiency and wear resistance
•    Steel camshaft for long-term performance and durability
•    Regulated voltage control that enhances efficiency by reducing the draw on the alternator
•    Coil-near-plug ignition features an individual coil for each spark plug to deliver maximum voltage and consistent spark density, with no variation between cylinders.


Heavy-duty foundation and vehicle control technologies
All Sierra HD models feature fully boxed frame assemblies – 18 different assemblies that accommodate more than 150 possible vehicle configurations across the lineup.

A short-long arm/torsion bar front suspension features forged steel upper control arms and precision-machined cast iron lower control arms. Five different torsion bar rates support five different front gross axle weight ratings to help stabilize the range of trim heights of various models under load – including snow plows – while enhancing appearance, handling, durability, tire wear and alignment.

At the rear, an asymmetrical leaf-spring design minimizes axle hop and enhances traction control efficiency. A two-stage leaf-spring design is used on 2500HD models and three-stage design is employed on 3500HD model.

Sierra HD’s advanced vehicle control technologies are designed to make tough jobs easier and more comfortable, while also contributing to a safe driving experience, particularly when hauling cargo or towing a trailer.

StabiliTrak electronic stability control is standard on all single-rear-wheel models and 3500HD dual-rear-wheel models. It incorporates trailer sway control and hill start assist. Additionally, available cruise control, auto grade braking, and diesel exhaust brake features help the vehicle maintain a set speed up and down grades, even when towing a heavy trailer.

With the diesel exhaust brake feature, the turbocharger is used to smoothly and quietly create additional backpressure in the engine to help slow the vehicle. The combination of the exhaust brake and the automatic transmission downshifts helps the driver maintain the desired speed, even on steep grades.

New Active Steering Assist – standard on SLE and SLT double cab and crew cab models, as well as Denali – also enhances driver control, maneuverability and highway stability. It adapts technology similar to active rack-and-pinion systems for the Sierra HD’s recirculating ball power steering system, providing corrections to enhance stability on the highway, enhance stability control assistance and more. It also helps make Sierra HDs feel more maneuverable and responsive to the driver.

A rear-vision camera system is standard on SLE, SLT and Denali, providing a view of items behind the vehicle. It can also assist with lining up in front of a trailer.

GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, with innovation and engineering excellence built into all GMC vehicles. The brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. GMC’s highest-volume vehicle, the Sierra pickup, is the most powerful light-duty pickup on the market, and the first full-size pickup to receive the highest-possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.

VIA Motors Electrified Chevy Silverado Pickup at the ICUEE Exposition - 2015


An attendee at the ICUEE Show in Louisville listens to the pitch on the VIA Electrified Chevy Pickup 



Starting in 2014 VIA Motors expected to sell its first extended-range electric-vehicles according to President Alan Perriton.

The first units were likely Chevrolet Express cargo vans purchased from General Motors and modified by VIA at its Stockton, CA, facility. Next in line are Chevy Silverado extended-cab pickups. The Orem, UT-based company also is working longer term on an electric version of the Chevy Suburban SUV, named the Presidential.

The trucks boast a 400-hp electric motor plus GM’s 4.3L V-6 under the hood, which acts as a generator and range extender for the electric powertrain. The trucks will be marketed primarily to fleets such as telecoms, utilities and government agencies, Perriton says, and will be sold under the VIA nameplate, not Chevrolet.

The EREV trucks promise a range of 40 miles (64 km) in all-electric mode and 300 miles (483 km) more per fill up using the V-6 as a range extender. The vehicles also incorporate another gasoline-powered generator that can provide auxiliary power for worksites or emergencies.

The trucks are expected to qualify for a $7,500 federal tax credit covering electric vehicles and may qualify for a total of up to $20,000 in federal and state incentives, VIA’s website claims.

In fleet use where the vehicles operate mostly under electric power, fuel costs can be cut from $0.30 per mile to $0.06 per mile, VIA claims. The company is accepting orders now on its website with a $1,000 refundable reservation. Prices are expected to start at $79,000 before incentives. 

Perriton, a former high-ranking GM executive, says VIA has built 15 vehicles for evaluation and is undergoing emissions testing to meet federal and California certification.

Because of its modifications, including addition of 600 lbs. (272 kg) of batteries, VIA also will conduct front, quarter and side crash tests to meet National Highway Traffic Safety Administration standards, he says.

Some 30 potential fleet customers are supporting development of the VIA EREV trucks, including Verizon and Pacific Gas & Electric.

The recent bankruptcy and sale of A123 Systems, VIA’s sole supplier of lithium-ion batteries, is not expected to have an impact, Perriton says. A123’s assets were sold earlier this year to the U.S. subsidiary of China’s Wanxiang Group, after undergoing national security scrutiny, and renamed B456 Systems. It has plants in Livonia and Romulus, MI.

VIA has a joint venture with a partner in Mexico that plans to build van conversions in San Luis Potosi and convert Silverado pickups produced by GM in Silao.

The company also is looking at various U.S. assembly sites, preferably co-located near a GM assembly plant. GM makes the Silverado in Flint, MI, and Fort Wayne, IN, and the Suburban in Arlington, TX.

VIA is privately owned. Major investors include California billionaire and venture capitalist Carl Berg. Former GM vice chairman Bob Lutz sits on the company’s board.

Accommodating changes in the redesigned ’14 model-year Silverado will require only minor adjustments by VIA, Perriton says. It will continue to use GM’s 4.3L V-6 in all of its conversions to take advantage of GM’s built-in engine control module and existing emission control technology.

VIA originally considered purchasing “gliders” from GM lacking engines, drivetrains and other components but has tabled the idea, Perriton says.

VIA’s modifications include stripping 5-speed transmissions and fuel tanks from stock vehicles and installing its dual-drive motor controller, electric drive motor and electric generator as well as the battery pack.

The 24-gal. (91-L) fuel tank is replaced with a 17-gal. (64-L) tank to make room for the battery pack. A full charge with 240 volts takes three to four hours while a 110-volt charge can require 10 hours, Perriton says. 

VIA will warrant its vehicles for 36 months/36,000 miles (58,000 km) and touts the “life cycle” advantages of its EREV lineup. “Because there’s less wear on the brakes and engines and less need for oil changes, belts and filters, maybe you’d have one-third the upkeep costs,” says Perriton. “I have 13,000 miles (2,930 km) on my (EREV) Chevrolet Volt, and I have 87% oil life left.”

Because its trucks can serve as stand-alone generating units, VIA envisions their use as powering all sorts of equipment on site. When the batteries are exhausted, the V-6 kicks in.

“During blackouts you could pull a pickup to a substation and keep the electricity flowing,” he says. “Imagine what a boon that would have been during the recent devastating East Coast hurricane.”

VIA has looked at tying in with other auto makers but for now is limiting its arrangement to GM. “We’re not exclusive to GM, but we don’t want to take on too much,” says Perriton. “We want to stay on course and introduce the models we are developing.”
