CINCINNATI, June 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Workhorse Group (NASDAQ:WKHS) has integrated the BMW i3 range-extender (REx) solution into its fleet of Workhorse E-GEN range-extended delivery vehicles. The Workhorse E-GEN delivery vehicles are used by last mile delivery companies to fulfill their customers' delivery needs.
BMW's REx is powered by a 647 cc two-cylinder gasoline engine that engages when the battery level drops to a pre-determined state-of-charge, acting purely as a generator to produce electricity to extend the range of the Workhorse E-GEN vehicle.
"The BMW i3 REx solution will add tremendous benefits to both our E-GEN vehicle and to our customers. The use of the BMW REx will further strengthen our customers' fuel efficiencies and maintenance savings while continuing to eliminate range anxiety often found with battery-electric vehicles," commented Steve Burns , Founder and CEO of Workhorse Group Inc. "We are excited and very proud to be integrating the integrity, character and proven performance of the BMW REx powertrain into our Workhorse E-GEN vehicles."
