2018 Workhorse W-15 Electric Pickup Truck Video
Anytime you get a chance to see a new entry to a popular vehicle class, it's special. We had that opportunity May 2 when the Workhorse W-15 extended range pickup truck debuted at the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo in California.
The Workhorse designers and engineers did something special with the W-15, and they weren't shy about making it look quite different from the competition. But can you go too far?
We saw some nice details on this new pickup, but we have questions about whether an electric pickup will gain widespread acceptance. It's almost a truism in the pickup class that if you bring something new to the table, it better do things at a level above and beyond the current offerings. It can't just be good enough. In certain ways, this electric pickup takes things to the next level.
We'll know more after several national fleet buyers take possession of these new pickups and run them through punishing duty cycles. Until then, here's a quick walk around the W-15 we did at the expo.
