Workhorse Group Inc., an American technology company focused on providing sustainable and cost-effective electric vehicles to the last mile delivery sector, announced today that it has successfully completed Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) testing for its C650 and C1000 all-electric delivery vans.
FMVSS testing for both the C650 and C1000 vans had been delayed by complications related to the COVID-19 pandemic. With facilities and supporting manpower restored, the testing was officially completed this week.
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,” said Company CEO Duane Hughes. “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.”
