WATCH: US company shows off new plug-in hybrid bakkie in NYC

2018-08-16 19:00

US transport company, Workhorse, is planning to launch a plug-in hybrid bakkie in 2019, CEO Steve Burns  told Fox News

In 2017, Wheels24 contributor Lance Branquinho covered the technical aspects: "An evolution of the Chevrolet Silverado, the Workhorse has both single- and double-cab versions available and they’re not slow. At all.

"Powered by a two 172kW electric motors – one at each axle - Workhorse’s W-15 is good for 0-100km/h in 5.5 seconds, hardly surprising considering the power unit’s total output of 344kW.

"There’s a small-capacity petrol engine on-board to function as a range extender. Well, as a ranger-extender but also a static power generator set, to power tools when you are working out on site, or the farm, with your W-15."
