Cleburne, Texas’ Hudson Bus Sales submitted a purchase order for 200 Pegasus Valkyrie MFSAB’s with the new VIA Motors VTrux platform.
The order is the first commitment from a dealer from the 2,000 chassis commitment Pegasus made with VIA Motors, which was announced in September.
A Pegasus Bus on a VIA cutaway will feature all-wheel drive and industry-leading low floor height and turning radius. Gross vehicle weight rating of the units will range from 12,500 pounds to 14,000 pounds. The electric motors will generate a continuous rated 400 horsepower and will be able to transport a payload of 7,000 pounds to 8,200 pounds within a range of 180 miles.
The VIA chassis is set to begin production in 2024 and the Hudson Bus Sales units will be the first production, purpose-built EV MFSAB.
