Workhorse set to test N-Gen electric vans in US cities

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Workhorse Group has announced that it is set to start testing its new N-Gen electric van in a number of US cities.

In a statement issued today, Stephen Burns, CEO of Workhorse, said that the new N-Gen platform represents “a new day for last-mile delivery”.

Burns added: “With agreements now in place to test and operate N-Gen vehicles in several cities across the United States, Workhorse continues to be on the front edge of transformative innovation in the commercial transportation sector.”

The electric N-Gen van has a lightweight composite body and will offer a range of around 100 miles on a single charge. An optional gasoline range extender will add an additional 75 miles. In early on-road testing, the N-Gen has demonstrated a 60-65 MPGe efficiency.

The vehicle will also feature an optional integrated Horsefly unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for package deliveries. The octocopter drone will launch from the roof of the┬ádelivery van and deliver packages to destinations within the driver’s line of sight.

According to reports, the tests will be taking place in cities in Ohio and California.
