    I’m sure they’ll be well-designed and highly practical for the purposes they serve.

    I'd be interested in seeing the instrument panel. I have to believe the next generation will have your route mapped out and tell you how to get to each stop...... but then again it will be instructing you to back alot to make sure Orion is utilized.

    eats packages I have depth perception issues

    Could someone even see alright out of those trucks? Not only do they have a thick frame but the windows have a black coating all around the edges.

    Also the ceiling looks really low, combine with the rails for the door to open and I see problems getting things into the top shelf without getting the door stuck.

    Boo, if they were built to be 9,999 lbs, then other companies can use it to circumvent the DOT hourly limits... so they will have to try the 700 & less versions

    Those mirrors suck on the lower capacity versions... I have them on my delivery truck and I have to fold the driver side in at times

    Those mirrors aren't cheap either

    Saw “Workhorse” and my first thought was, “Oh hell no!”

    How many recharge cycles before the range drops to 50 miles ?

    Heck, our li-ion batteries can't even last a 10 hour day on our powerpads/diads after about 150 cycles

    "The van qualifies for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500, according to U.S. Department of Energy guidelines for plug-in electric vehicles."


    There is the motivation to try it.

    Just like the whole CNG tractor debacle.

    Tax credits.

    That door is not nearly wide enough at the top. And wtf does it matter how much the truck weights when we have hundreds of eregs and overweights every day.

    A company out here called BYD in So Cal did that with an old P12. Lucky me I was the test dummy.
    It Sucked!!!!!!
    No power and starting the vehicle took way to long to power up. Plus with the drive motor had clearance issues. I'd bottom out on driveways.
