Workhorse starts Production of Chassis for W56 EV

Ohio,United States-Workhorse Group Inc., an America Technology company has started the manufacturing of chassis for W56 electric vehicle's, now being produced at the Company's Union City, Indiana manufacturing facility. The W56 Electric Vehicle is the first purpose-built, completely designed Class 5/6 model chassis platform created from the ground up by the company.

Mr. Rick Dauch CEO of Workhorse, said that, With the first W56 chassis coming off the assembly line in Union City, we have accomplished a critical step in the development of our product roadmap. The W56 offers cutting-edge features that will help us grow as we try to hasten the adoption of commercial EVs. Customers are very interested in the W56, and we think we will be able to get firm orders in the fourth quarter and beyond. I want to express my gratitude to our amazing team for their ongoing dedication to the design, testing, sourcing, manufacture, and assembly of the W56 and our vehicles, all of which will serve to advance our success.

The W56 offers an exceptional fusion of high quality, serviceability, and reliability. The zero-emission delivery work van is made to support benchmark payload capacities of up to about 10,000 pounds and has a range of up to 150 miles, meeting the demanding requirements of the commercial vehicle industry. The W56 step van also features a sizable cargo box with a capacity of 1,000+ cubic feet, a lowered step-in, and a wide cabin door for simpler entry and egress. The interior has been ergonomically constructed with the delivery driver in mind to ensure safety and comfort throughout even the lengthiest shifts.

Workhorse anticipates starting full W56 step van production later in September and delivering production-ready demo units to significant fleets early in the fourth quarter.
