Workhorse Group Inc. will present a working concept truck of the W-15 plug-in hybrid electric pickup truck for fleet usage, at the ACT Expo conference from May 1 to 4 in Long Beach, Calif., the company announced.

Workhorse's goal is to make the W-15 the most economical, safest and lowest emissions pickup truck in America.

The new Workhorse W-15 light-duty platform design is an extension of the E-Gen electric technology used in Workhorse medium-duty delivery trucks.

With an expected 80-mile battery range using the OEM's battery packs, the Workhorse W-15 light-duty design expects to provide economical, clean, and powerful performance, according to the manufacturer. If needed, the on-board gasoline generator will then operate after battery power has been depleted, allowing fleet drivers unlimited range to complete the days' tasks.

The W-15's goal is to be the safest pickup truck on the market with its large frontal crumple zone and low center of gravity.

The Workhorse W-15 electric truck is expected to lower emissions. In developing the W-15, our goal is to deliver lower total cost of ownership (TCO) to fleets through lower fueling and maintenance costs.
