    A new electric pickup is coming from a Ohio-based manufacturer  as Tesla gears up to make its own version.

    Workhorse W-15

    The advent of the Workhorse W-15  is entering a potentially strong market among service companies that operate fleets of pickups. Workhorse Group said in March that it had received 2,150 “letters of intent” to buy the W-15 truck from major utilities and energy producers like Duke Energy, Portland General Electric, the Southern California Public Power Authority, Clean Fuels Ohio. It says it also has one from the city of Orlando, Fla.

    3-cylinder gas motor Hybrid

    With  a range of 80 miles per charge, the W-15 will meet the needs of a wide range of companies, from electric utilities to plumbing contractors. And, in a likely key difference from the Tesla pickup on the horizon, the W-15 will have a backup, 3-cylinder gas motor to let it drive longer distances in a pinch.

    The W-15 will be built in Union City, Ind., with a pricetag of $52,500. The pitch to prospective buyers will that they can then save dramatically on maintenance and gas, effectively cutting the price of the trucks.

    “We sell it on economy. This is a less expensive truck,” said Workhorse CEO Steve Burns.

    But it is likely to run headlong into competition from Tesla, which plans not only pickup trucks, but heavy-duty haulers as well. Tesla, the Palo Alto-based electric car maker that has become a Wall Street darling, will have a pickup within two years, CEO Elon Musk tweeted last month.
