Workhorse Group formally unveiled its W56 step van model at the National Truck Equipment Association’s (NTEA) Work Truck Week in Indianapolis, IN. Available in a number of work truck configurations tailored to meet various business applications, the W56 is the company’s new Class 5/6 model.
According to a recent press release from Workhorse Group, the zero-emissions delivery work van is designed to meet the challenging demands of the commercial vehicle industry, supporting benchmark payload capacity of up to approximately 10,000 pounds and with a range of up to 150 miles. The W56 also offers a large 1,000+ cubic foot cargo box with lowered step-in and wide cabin door for easier entry and exit.
Leveraging existing Workhorse blueprints, in addition to 9 million-plus miles of service time on the road, the W56 offers the first fully-designed, purpose-built chassis platform built from the ground up out of Workhorse’s Union City, IN factory, the company says.
