Workhorse Opens W-15 Range-Extended Truck Orders To Public – 0-60 MPH In 5.5 Seconds
Workhorse welcomes in the New Year with more than 5,300 pre-orders for its W-15 range-extended pick-up trucks, scheduled for first deliveries in late 2018.
The next logical step is opening reservations for the public, which is precisely what Workhorse is now doing.
To take place in the queue, Workhorse requires a $1,000 (fully refundable) deposit. Pricing for the W-15 starts at $52,500. After the $7,500 federal tax credit, but before any state incentives, W-15 will start at $45,000.
Workhorse apparently will use one of the largest batteries in a range-extended electric vehicle – 60 kWh, but only around 40 kWh will be available for use, netting some 80 miles of pure electric range. The big buffer will not only hide battery capacity fade over time, but will help to provide ample power.
We found some interesting new data on the spec sheet too:
- 0-60 mph – 5.5 seconds
“Happy 2018! On behalf of everyone here at Workhorse, thank you for your continued support of our W-15 electric pick-up truck. Over the past months we have received thousands of emails offering support, ideas, and inputs. Thanks to you and the tireless efforts of the Workhorse R&D team I am thrilled to announce that we have opened W-15 reservations for everyone! We believe that the W-15 will be the safest, highest performance, lowest total cost of ownership pick-up truck.
By clicking the link you will be redirected to the webpage where you can place your reservation. The cost to pre-order a Workhorse W-15 is $1000 per truck, which is fully refundable. The purchase price of the vehicle is estimated at $52,500 and we expect the W-15 to be eligible under current legislation for a $7,500 tax credit for US citizens. The specifications and additional information on the vehicle including total cost of ownership, safety, and performance features can be found here.
Workhorse currently has over 5,300 W-15 trucks on pre-order from fleet operators. These pre-orders will start to deliver in late 2018. We will keep you informed as delivery dates approach in 2019. Order now and reserve your place in line!” – Workhorse e-mail via Electrek
