LOS ANGELES — GreenPower Motor Company Inc. has announced the delivery of the first tranche of EV Star Cab and Chassis (EV Star CC) to Workhorse Group Inc. for the production of Workhorse’s New Class 4 W750 Step Van Line.

Earlier this year, GreenPower and Workhouse announced a multi-year supply agreement to facilitate the manufacturing and delivery of medium-duty Class 4 step vans into the North American market.

Under the terms of the agreement, the companies committed to a 21-month schedule during which GreenPower would deliver 1,500 EV Star cab and chassis to Workhorse starting in July 2022 through to March 2024. The chassis are to be used in the production of Workhorse’s new Class 4 W750 step van line, which is slated to enter production later this year.

The W750 will feature up to 150 miles of all-electric range, with a payload capacity of 5,000 lbs., as well as standard 60 kW DC fast-charging and optional 60 kW wireless-charging capabilities.

“We have been collaborating with Workhorse for nearly a year on the co-development of zero-emission commercial vehicles with the integration of our EV Star CC for Workhorse’s W750,” said Brendan Riley, president of GreenPower in a statement.

Workhorse will complete the manufacturing process and deliver finished step vans to its customers in the United States and Canada. The agreement includes deposits based on delivery thresholds and also contains a renewal option.

GreenPower’s EV Star Cab and Chassis is a multi-utility zero-emissions vehicle with a battery pack of 118 kWh providing a payload of 7,000 pounds and a range of 150 miles. GreenPower’s EV Star Cab and Chassis accommodates a variety of mid and last-mile delivery needs.
