Workhorse Group was awarded an Environmental Leadership Award at the first ever National Drive Electric Week event held in Cincinnati on Sept 17th.
The award was given in Recognition of their Contribution to Sustainable Transportation.
They have developed an extremely energy efficient and reliable electric drive train for class 3 to 6 truck chassis, which they are now in the process of delivering to customers like UPS, FedEx and Alpha Baking. They are also now finalists to replace the USPS fleet.
The drive train is setting a new standard for energy efficiency and emission control for the trucking industry. It will undoubtedly be of great benefit for the environment.
It replaces the extremely energy inefficient, air polluting, green house gas emitting diesel and gas powered drive trains currently in common use.
This award was recently established in honor of Sister Paula Gonzales, a Sister of Charity, and former Professor of Biology at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati.
