Workhorse Delivers First EGen Electric Vehicles with Onboard Generator

By Auto Tech Outlook | Wednesday, May 29, 2019

CINCINNATI, OH: Workhorse Group that manufactures electric drive systems for medium-duty, class 3-6 commercial truck platforms announces that it has delivered two EGen Electric Trucks with Onboard Generator to a Major Transportation Company, and deliveries are currently being made to customers.

The EGen truck offers smooth driving, zero emissions and no transmission that could significantly reduce vehicle operating costs for the transportation company. “Based on deliveries made, the performance and handling of the E-GEN Workhorse truck has been outstanding,” says Steve Burns, CEO of Workhorse Group. “The EGen onboard generator gives the truck many unique advantages over conventional gas and other typical electric vehicles.

E-GEN trucks built on a new, narrow track W88 chassis is embedded with a 60 kWh lithium ion battery pack featuring Panasonic 18650 cells that provide power to a 2200 nm (268 bhp) permanent magnet motor powerful enough to eliminate the need for a transmission.

“The E-GEN zero-emission driving experience has the potential to reinvent the local delivery vehicle. With the capability of recharging enroute, via the onboard generator, in the event of an unusual event that requires more than the average route length on a given day, range anxiety is virtually eliminated”, adds Burns.
