Workhorse publicized an order for 125 E-Gen vehicles by UPS for service in seven states one year ago (F&F, September 9, 2015), followed by a DoE-supported order for 18 all-battery vehicles for UPS in Texas in November (F&F, November 10).

The company showed an E-Gen chassis with a new range extender – the same BMW W20 Rex engine used in the hybrid electric version of the compact i3 car –at ACT Expo 2016 this past May in Long Beach, Calif. (F&F, May 9).

Traction motors for the E-Gen line are supplied by Canada’s TM4.

In addition to UPS, previously disclosed Workhorse customers have included a major bakery, for trucks to be employed in New York (F&F, December 9, 2013). A photo of an S. Rosen’s delivery vehicle may be seen on Workhorse’s E-Gen webpage.
