Workhorse Taking Reservations For Consumer-Oriented W-15 Plug-In Pickup

Workhorse has announced that it is considering producing a consumer version of its W-15 plug-in hybrid pickup after receiving strong interest in the vehicle.

The W-15, which was first shown earlier this month, is powered by a pair of electric motors located in the front and the rear of the vehicle. The two motors are good for a combined output of 460 horsepower and allow for a maximum payload capacity of 2,200 pounds. Power comes from a lithium-ion battery pack provided by Panasonic, which allows for an all-electric driving range of 80 miles. A gasoline range-extender is also onboard and enables the pickup to travel 310 miles total.
