Brink's purchases two all-electric trucks from Workhorse

Workhorse Group Inc. announced that the Brink’s Co., a provider of secure transportation and cash management services, has purchased two all-electric, zero emission vehicles that will be put into service in California and Chicago.

Brink’s will pair its custom logistics body with the Workhorse Class 5 E-GEN electric extended-range truck and E-100 chassis.

The E-100 has an average range of 100 miles on a single charge, depending on duty cycle. The Workhorse E-GEN battery-electric extended range step van has an average range of 60 miles all-electric plus an additional 60 miles using the integrated BMW range extender. Both vehicles utilize Panasonic Li-Ion battery packs and incorporate Workhorse’s proprietary chassis design, powertrain and battery management system.

"We are delighted to be working with Brink’s  on a  fleet electrification plan, starting with California and Chicago,” said Steve Burns, Workhorse’s CEO. “Our medium-duty E-100 and E-GEN vehicles save our customers an estimated $150,000 in total cost of ownership savings per truck over a lifetime of use.”
