Workhorse Group to Use Panasonic Batteries in Electric Trucks

February 24, 2016 - Press Release

Workhorse Group Inc. has signed an agreement with the Rechargeable Battery Division (RBD) of Panasonic Industrial Devices Sales Company of America for the supply of "18650" cylindrical Panasonic Li-Ion batteries for Workhorse's battery-electric medium duty trucks, according to a release.

Workhorse is striving to evolve and grow the medium-duty truck market for alternative propulsion systems that reduce both the environmental impact and operating costs. Panasonic's lithium-ion batteries feature the high capacity, durability and cost performance that will further help Workhorse differentiate their battery-powered electric vehicles.

The Panasonic "18650" cells are built into battery packs sized to meet the routes that fleet customers require.

Workhorse trucks utilize the Panasonic cells in both their E-GEN extended-range, battery-electric and E-100 battery-electric trucks offering customers the options that best meet their needs. Workhorse trucks have historically been sold to the largest fleets in the U.S. and Canada for last-mile delivery and related uses.
