Workhorse Group Inc., a technology company focused on transitioning to zero-emission commercial vehicles, has introduced its W56 step van model at the National Truck Equipment Association’s (NTEA) Work Truck Week in Indianapolis. The first-look presentation was hosted by Workhorse CEO Rick Dauch on March 8.
Available in a number of work truck configurations tailored to meet various business applications, the W56 is the company’s new Class 5/6 model. The zero-emission delivery work van has a payload capacity of up to approximately 10,000 lbs. and a range of up to 150 miles. The W56 also offers a 1,000+ cu. ft. cargo box with lowered step-in and wide cabin door for easier entry and exit.
The W56 offers a fully-designed, purpose-built chassis platform built from the ground up out of Workhorse’s Union City, IN, factory. Customer demonstration vehicles are expected to be ready in the coming weeks before regular production begins in the third quarter of 2023.
