Workhorse recently announced a first of its kind collaboration with UPS to design and deploy 50 plug-in electric delivery trucks with zero tailpipe emissions. The vehicles – custom-built from the ground up for UPS – provide nearly 400% fuel efficiency improvement, as well as optimum energy efficiency, vehicle performance and a better driver experience.
This innovation is the result of a close working relationship between Workhorse and UPS over the last 4 years, refining electric vehicles with hard fought lessons from millions of road miles and thousands of packages delivered. The class 5, zero emission trucks will be comparable in acquisition cost to conventional-fueled trucks without any subsidies.
UPS has said it’s their goal to make these new electric vehicles a standard selection in its fleet of the future, and with approximately 35,000 comparable diesel or gasoline trucks currently on the road in its fleet, Workhorse looks forward to a continued partnership with UPS.
