The Workhorse W-15 is the first plug-in, battery-electric, range-extended pickup available from an American OEM. Based on 12 years of service, it is designed to save 55 percent in total cost of ownership and deliver a 90 percent reduction in emissions versus a gasoline-powered pickup. An integrated Panasonic Li-Ion battery pack delivers up to 80 MPGe all-electric miles, and an on-board two-cycle BMW gasoline engine powers the batteries to extend the range to 300 miles (comparable to the range of a competitively priced gasoline-powered truck). The all-wheel-drive electric vehicle offers a payload of 2,200 pounds and delivers 5,000 pounds of towing capability, with the additional benefit of easily powering plug-in or rechargeable electric tools on the jobsite. Available in 2019, the company says it has received more than 6,000 fleet pre-orders for the mid-range pickup via workhorse.com.
