‘Purchase Order with a Major Industrial Company’
Workhorse has “entered into a purchase order with a major industrial company” for 200 of its E-Gen range-extended electric trucks, the company said in an SEC filing earlier this month.
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.
Workhorse earlier this year disclosed an agreement to use cylindrical 18650 lithium ion batteries from the Panasonic Industrial Devices Sales Company of America for both its 100% all-electric E-100 delivery trucks and its range-extended E-Gen model (F&F, February 2).
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.
