Workhorse starts production of light-weight electric delivery vehicle

Workhorse has begun initial production of a light-weight electric delivery vehicle, the Workhorse NGEN-1000. At 4,000 pounds and with up to 1,000 cubic feet of storage, the van’s weight is less than half that of conventional diesel step-vans with similar storage capacity. The vehicle will boast a 100-mile range, according to Workhorse, and come in four cargo sizes: 250, 450, 700, and 1,000 cubic feet.

The NGEN-1000 is the first vehicle from the NGEN line that Workhorse has begun production on. Features of the NGEN-1000 include:

  • New design with grill-less front end
  • Smaller battery pack
  • Floor with 7.25-inch clearance
  • Hub motors in front
  • All-wheel drive
  • 6,000-lb carrying capacity
