Workhorse W-15 Plug-In Electric Truck Review

March 5, 2020

we’re here in Long Beach California as guests of the workhorse group why because they’re showing us the first drivable fully electric pickup truck it’s actually got a motor in the front just for extended range purposes but it does have a range could happen somewhere right around 400 miles let’s take a closer look exterior design we’ve already seen is very almost traditional pickup truck big bed in the back and then also the cab in the front hood that inside this is where this w15 has the opportunity to separate itself from the pack very cool and clean front – just a big screen here in the front and also a controller screen here in the middle that’s going to allow you to adjust radio coolidge temperatures or even monitor the engine a couple of features that we really like four-wheel independent suspension with the battery pack right down the center of the frame wind that means it’s going to have great maneuverability and great ride and handling also eight love wheels here on this w15 but there’s also going to be a W 25 and a W 35 but one feature that we really like plug-in power either at the campsite or if the power goes out at your house here at the back of the truck Phil gave drops 2200 pounds of payload this vehicle supposed to wake right around 5,000 now gbbw 7200 also flowing capacity right now is that a max 5,000 now price point for this vehicle and it’s not on sale yet but price point for this is targeted at fifty two thousand five hundred dollars now whether or not this vehicle is going to make it into the segment it’s about the size of a half Sun and that’s right at the heart of the market but if this vehicle can do all the things that it’s promising and from this test drive that we just had which we were very impressed by it’ll be very interesting to see what happens with this in the market if it doesn’t take off from a customer point of view is that the very least we’re going to strike fear George Chevy and RAM you want to know more about this pickup truck or any other trucks in the twist go to pickup trucks calm you

  1. Tesla should've invested in a pickup. They would've been right up there with Ford in a matter of years.

  2. $52,000 for a 400 mile extended range electric 1/2 ton that hauls 2500 lbs and tows 5000 lbs, with  0-60 in 5.5 seconds. That's fantastic!

  3. Honestly, I usually don't like electric vehicles outside of Tesla. This is a very smart entry into the market and it's surprising someone didn't do it earlier. The only off-putting parts to me are the interior and the tire choice. Tires look a bit small, so no off-roading. The Interior looks like it is out of the '80s with a couple monitors.

  4. Looks like this is mostly made for factories and other industrial companies. If you just need to move stuff within the facility this could really cut down on fuel and maintenence costs.

  5. it looks like shitty poorly made body that looks like a ugly Honda pickup truck put on a chassis of a silverado short bed

  6. a loy of narrowminded people here. this is the first step in manufacturing a new line of pickup trucks. dodge, ford and chevy need to be paying attention

  7. love the concept im sold, but a 5 year old could have made a better design, ugly would be an oversimplification to describe that hideus monster learn something from tesla, bring the drag coefficient to like at least .27, also round style, square is hurting to look at

  8. that interior looks fucking gay. why would you build an electric truck with such a faggy looking interior? it needs more traditional interior design with the working man in mind.

  9. so i can buy a truck….for 52,000 that can tow and be useful? and without towing go like 170 ish miles?

    f150 is like 35k base isnt it?
    so 17k to waste time charging a battery every 80 miles nice…jesus

    I dont see the point in having any more battery than what you need to daily drive it without towing…having battery capacity for towing 80 miles is kinda odd.

    still very much reliant on its ice engine and stuck with like 15k of batteries that will hardly ever get used

  10. Make it a normal crew cab and they may have something. Seen another video that shows the rear seats. You would have to be 4' tall and calves as thin as paper to sit in the rear seats.

  11. The production will begin soon, possibly mid 2020, because its factory is purchased by Workhorse partner Lordstown Motors.
