Workhorse Group Inc. has received a $7 million follow-on order for its all-electric delivery trucks, to be deployed by an undisclosed major delivery company in the Greater San Diego area.
The all-electric trucks are powered by Panasonic batteries and deliver a 100-mile range, the company says.
“We have entered an exciting new phase of our production operations,” says Duane Hughes, Workhorse’s president and chief operating officer. “We see this gross margin positive $7 million order as the first of many more electric truck orders to come.”
He adds, “Our proven electric truck platforms continue to garner customer adoption all across the country. We are excited to have these trucks destined for deployment in San Diego this year.”
Separately, UPS recently announced a new collaboration with Workhorse under which the companies will design new electric delivery trucks from the ground up.
