An impressive feat to say the least, just under a year after they released conceptual renderings of their new longer-range electric pickup truck, Workhorse has released images of the real deal. And not only does it look the part, but fits into the current aesthetic of stock pickup trucks quite nicely.
Outfitted with an electric motor in both the front and the rear along with a BMW gas engine, the Workhorse W-15 is rated for 80 miles on a full charge. And just because this thing is hybrid electric doesn’t mean the power is lacking either. In fact, the W-15 boasts 460 horsepower that’s distributed to all four wheels, can carry up to 2,200 pounds in the bed, and comes complete with a 7.2kW, 30-amp power outlet on the side for running power tools on the job site. The truck also does 0-60 mph in just 5.5 seconds, features a custom dashboard in the interior, LCD screens for instrument and infotainment display, and a lane departure warning function. Initially, Workhorse is aiming this release toward the commercial market, but who knows, they could make their way into the private consumer market as well. No word on pricing just yet.
