Workhorse passes FMVSS tests

Successful showing for last-mile vehicle manufacturer confirms design, performance of its all-electric C650, C1000 delivery vans

Last-mile electric vehicle manufacturer Workhorse Group says it recently completed Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) testing for its C650 and C1000 all-electric delivery vans.

The successful FMVSS testing for both vans was delayed by complications related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Workhorse said. With facilities and supporting manpower restored, the testing was officially completed in late June.

The overall FMVSS testing process consists of a multitude of high-level, significant reviews and required approvals for vehicle safety, including seat belt efficacy and additional seating safety and braking system standards, among other areas.

“The successful completion of our FMVSS testing confirms that the design, construction, performance, and durability of our all-electric 650 and 1000 cubic foot C-Series delivery vans meet federal requirements, making Workhorse the only American all-electric OEM designing and manufacturing last mile delivery vehicles to complete this testing,” CEO Duane Hughes said.

“With this late-stage milestone certification now behind us, we remain well-positioned to execute on our production timeline for the remainder of the year.”
