A few weeks ago, I got an e-mail from a public relations person at Workhorse to ask if I would be interested in test driving their shiny new e-truck built for WB Mason, the second largest privately owned office products dealer in the United States. Being an enthusiastic supporter of Workhorse, I was quick to agree.
Friday, October 20 was set as the date for the ride and drive experience. I drove to the WB Mason regional headquarters in Brockton, Massachusetts, where I met with Rick Lynch, head driving instructor and safety guru for the New England region. At the appointed hour, Rick introduced me to what is called the E-Gen, an electric truck delivered to them for testing just a few weeks ago. Four more E-Gen vans are coming soon.
