Workhorse Group is hell bent on electrifying work vehicles. First it introduced the, and now it’s unveiled an electric van for delivery drivers.
The Workhorse N-Gen is an electric vehicle aimed at last-mile delivery services, which bring packages from local warehouses to people’s doorsteps. Its electric motors provide for about 100 miles of range, and an optional gas-powered range extender can increase that range by another 75 miles.
Like Workhorse’s W-15 pickup, the N-Gen prioritizes function over form. It’s not the prettiest van on the market, with its borrowed Maserati headlights and awkward front end. But with a 105-inch roof height and 19-inch floor, it’s meant to be ideal for delivering packages.
The N-Gen’s most interesting feature is its optional delivery drone. The HorseFly system features an eight-rotor drone that can launch from the van’s roof and deliver a package weighing up to 10 pounds to a person’s doorstep. Workhorse .
