Workhorse receives purchase order from Pride Group Enterprises for 6,320 C-Series electric delivery vehicles
Workhorse Group has received a purchase order for 6,320 C-Series all-electric delivery vehicles from Pride Group Enterprises, a company with businesses in transportation equipment retail, wholesale, rental, leasing and logistics. The order is split between Workhorse’s C-1000 and C-650 models and is subject to various production and delivery conditions.
Inventory financing is being provided by Hitachi Capital America (HCA) as part of Workhorse’s previously announced strategic partnership with HCA. Initial delivery of the vehicles may begin by July 2021 and will run through 2026. The delivered vehicles will be distributed through Pride dealerships for fleet use.
In November 2020, Workhorse received a purchase order for 500 of its all-electric C-1000 delivery vehicles from Pritchard Companies. Inventory financing for that deal is also being provided by Hitachi Capital America.
Workhorse C-Series vehicles are powered by a modular battery pack system, which provides between 35 kWh when equipped with two battery packs and 70 kWh in its standard four pack configuration.
