Workhorse E-100 Walk-In Vans for ‘Major Transportation Company’

Cincinnati’s AMP Trucks reports an order for 18 of its 100% battery electric Workhorse E-100 walk-in vans to be deployed in the Houston-Galveston area “with a major transportation company.”

Amp EVs acquired the Workhorse name last year with an eye to being the first fully integrated American manufacturer of 100% battery electric step vans (F&F, March 20, 2013).

Amp EVs acquired the Workhorse name last year with an eye to being the first fully integrated American manufacturer of 100% battery electric step vans (F&F, March 20, 2013).

“We are honored to be working with one of the world’s major transportation companies on this project,” Amp Holding CEO Steve Burns said in a release. “Our Workhorse E-100 truck is purpose-built to transform the package delivery vehicle market.”

Amp is using a new, “narrow track” W88 chassis. The electric trucks feature a 100-kilowatt-hour lithium battery pack using Panasonic 18650 cells and a 268-brake-horsepower permanent magnet motor “powerful enough to eliminate the need for a transmission.”

The Workhorse E-100 is designed and built to meet the transportation company’s daily duty cycle while delivering a zero-emission driving experience and eliminating the consumption of more than 650,000 gallons of diesel fuel over the vehicle’s projected life, Amp says. Proprietary onboard telematics help measure vehicle performance and efficiency.


The order is funded by a DoE/National Energy Laboratory grant the Houston-Galveston Area Council (F&F, September 16; H-GAC funding remains available), and CTE, the Center for Technology and the Environment.
