LOVELAND, OH—Workhorse Group Inc. has received a purchase order for 6,320 C-Series all-electric delivery vehicles from Pride Group Enterprises, a company that specialized in commercial vehicle rental, leasing and logistics. The order is split between Workhorse’s C-1000 and C-650 models, which are aimed at last-mile delivery applications.
Workhorse has also received large orders for EVs from several other customers, including UPS. And, it is a finalist for a multi-billion dollar contract from the U.S. Postal Service’s to replace its aging fleet of delivery trucks.
Workhorse recently became the first OEM to have its medium-duty all-electric parcel delivery truck certified by both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board.
Workhorse’s assembly plant is located in Union City, IN. According to a recent article in the New York Times, most of the company’s vehicles are hand-built, and it can take days to assemble one truck. Workhorse plans to ramp up production to five vehicles a day by the end of the first quarter and 10 a day by mid-year.
