The 15-vehicle order is expected to be delivered in 2024.

Workhorse Group Inc. recently received a second fleet purchase order for the W56 step van from a leading commercial fleet operator. The 15-vehicle order is expected to be delivered in 2024 by Workhorse’s dealer, Kingsburg Truck Center.

The W56 zero-emission delivery work van is designed for payload capacities up to about 10,000 lbs. and has a range of up to 150 miles. In addition, it offers a large 1,000-plus cubic foot cargo box with a lowered step-in and a wide cabin door for easier entry and exit. Built with the driver in mind, the cabin has been ergonomically designed while still providing safety and comfort during long shifts.

“With this new fleet order, we are building momentum and ramping up sales for our purpose-built Class 5/6 vehicle,” said Workhorse CEO Rick Dauch. “This is our second conversion from a demo vehicle trial to a sale for the W56 since we started production in September. We have a number of fully outfitted demo vehicle placements scheduled in the first quarter of this year and look forward to successful performance of our incredibly capable and reliable delivery van.”
