Workhorse Group has – after a long wait – finally revealed the “preliminary specifications” for their W-15 Electric Pickup, which is a model that has been designed and optimized for fleet usage.
According to the official details, there’s a great 80-mile all-electric range, an overall 75 MPGe and 460 horsepower. The latter is good for an estimated 0-60 time of 5.5 seconds. Workhorse also officially presented the truck in front of the audience during the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo in Long Beach, California and also announced the initial deliveries are scheduled for next year. The price is expected to come up to $52,500, which is not actually cheap at all, but still thousands of them have been “ordered” via non-binding letters of intent coming from organizations like Duke Energy, Portland General Electric, and the Southern California Public Power Authority.
Workhorse is not going to compete alone in the segment, because others – such as startup Bollinger Motors – are thinking this niche might deliver a hefty profit soon. In addition, the truck, which is all electric but features a gasoline range extender and all-wheel drive, as well as composite body with carbon fiber and even a 7.2 kw power export that allows tools to be plugged directly into the battery power source without the motor running will also have to face none other than Tesla in the near future.
