Looking to be an outstanding fleet based EV, the aptly named Workhorse W15 is a 4WD PHEV in truck form with a 60 kWh battery pack built from Panasonic 18650 cells, of which 40 kWh is usable to protect from battery degradation. It has a BMW three-cylinder gasoline engine, perhaps the B38, which generates 50 kW for the range extender functionality. All of this provides an 80 mile electric only range and another 310 miles from the range extender, which sips from an 11 gallon fuel tank. The truck has a 230hp electric motor on each axle and can tow 5000 pounds with a 7200 pound GVWR.
