Workhorse Group will deploy a fleet of all-electric, zero-emission N-GEN cargo vans in the San Francisco Bay area of California beginning next month. It will be the first such fleet in the US.
N-GEN Cargo Van (Workhorse)
Ahead of the launch, Workhorse will display the N-GEN at San Francisco's City Hall on Wednesday, March 28, to welcome the first van to the city.
"Rolling out this history making fleet of N-GEN vans in one of the most innovative cities in America is something myself and the entire team are extremely proud of," said Duane Hughes, Workhorse President and COO.
Designed from the ground up by American original equipment manufacturer Workhorse, the cargo vans were built to be a safe and efficient last-mile delivery and work truck system. With low floors and a high roof design, they are built to improve worker efficiency and reduce physical stress on the knees and back, while maximizing cargo space in a small footprint.
As an integrated component of Workhorse's offering, Ryder, the maintenance provider for Workhorse's entire electric vehicle fleet, will support the electric vehicles with a combination of warranty and maintenance services as part of the Ryder SelectCare fleet maintenance portfolio.

Fake news, electric trucks were around in the 1930\'s. UPS used them in NYC and LA. In 1931 Ward produced electric milk trucks. Thorne produced gas electric hybrids in 1929, also used as milk and bakery trucks. Workhorse is a flash in the pan, as were the above mentioned companies. Workhorse gas powered UPS trucks on the roads today are notoriously unreliable, and there\'s every reason to believe that their quality will not improve..
