Well you probably won't be surprised to hear this mean looking machine.
-- 800 horsepower reportedly also told -- It's seventy miles per gallon.
We'll take my word for it voluntary -- is president of -- motors seventy miles per gallon or more possibly.
Out of a big giant truck like this.
-- possible Harry -- We try to be conservative but it's effectively.
And our other vehicle lines we all -- -- view of the testing and validation that we have been a hundred mile -- gallon.
Plus on that track.
But -- we're delivering him to bring -- concept vehicle.
I hundred plus -- capability it's.
To let the public knows that mainstream electrification.
All of this costs of vehicles.
-- we're excited was because specifications -- truck drivers dream basically what we're talking about here is the same concept behind the Chevrolet Volt extended range electric power.
Exactly we have done effectively win this possibly be at home.
Sing songs on this airplane home and this is the result all morning.
It's possible now helps you but it gives you that kind of extended range.
You've got electricity.
We didn't need it gasoline we use our electricity when you want rather -- vastly different -- -- base.
On -- General Motors platform.
What's under the hood looks under the Jessica's -- it was a lot of stuff stuffed in here with your -- -- You know there's a whole lot of stuff on him but you're right what we do with it might -- the only -- US space vehicle.
And -- us having to do and designed from the ground up on a great news went home and make the -- -- -- drive system and apply what we all out drive train technology.
Things like the transmission and modified the you sauces and help fuel tank and so and then and hourly pension.
-- lines -- right on.
We know electric car especially hybrid electric cars and not the cheapest things in the world and get some kind of expensive -- together.
Well there is an added cost him a question on the issue for Ross is what is the life cycle cost.
We have -- I'll leave comments like you'll see -- the man Verizon we have -- -- in the gas and electric.
Those two entities along with -- 30000.
Vehicles and the athletes thank you can stop.
Effectively electrification of this positive vehicles.
And all of them and -- is what is the total life cycle cost.
As opposed to what is this the price yes there is an upgrade on pricing because of the addition of the drive system.
But when we.
When we Trace of doubt and they do it not necessarily unless they look at the end life cycle cost model and from months bond.
Factoring in what the least cost is what saved himself gasoline maintenance that come from a -- one it is the savings.
Some by the end of the excitement of yours in the vehicle whether it's seven years eight years then they haven't -- -- positive statement on the vehicle veered off.
A lot of money up front maybe -- thousand dollars or more what you could -- you know -- and I'm very differently and and that for that matter that's the reason why the Verizon's that the unions in the world and absolutely I'm very excited about converting them please tell.
Extended range electric drive you Hope, Arkansas -- -- does go on electricity alone we're gonna.
Do you have and it's a function of the bad spots.
But -- now standard battery pack which is around about when -- all of us know what else will take on a forty mile.
Drives like all right driving range and if you -- -- the average.
Using the vehicle -- daily use it in effect is being 80% of the public driving.
Less than forty miles on fifty miles per day about 65%.
In the driving in the order off for the homeless.
So the typical typical day he drives out effectively allows you used primarily -- child.
You go back like you did you think work -- bring it home you like him.
So you continuously use that electric rates if you want to take a long trip.
Which is outside of that forty mile range and you've got the gasoline back -- -- -- you still have.
The 350 -- so.
Total range capability on the I think he's getting pretty good fuel economy and an extended and that little bit and that fuel economy.
And -- normally about double what you would normally get off really.
We commit to look it was like to -- kind of targeted more towards we can guess and this is for different type of fire -- it's -- a look at it that you -- tell me.
You you'd like to see one -- -- in the driveway right now I'm out of it would fit my driveway and and absolutely not is that this is beyond iconic look.
For being offered pick -- yeah.
That off -- -- about it I mean you don't have to have the size of the song.
It can be much analysts -- comfortable.
-- -- housewives we found out like to drive becomes just as much as the man.
And so there's a lot and out.
-- on the retail customers side and certainly on the off route.
Use -- side.
We we think this is an exciting.
Opportunity to show that this kind of vehicle.
Stated range whether it is this constant and its track vehicles and and that normally history.
And even working on this for a couple years when do their cars and the trucks -- we -- -- production we're in production this year.
-- in the second half this year we will be in production first to support -- customs.
The other fleet customers that have signed up its -- the following year 2014.
We'll move into -- middle and -- high volume production and at that point we'll also moved towards the retail customers.
