CINCINNATI, April 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Workhorse Group Inc. (Nasdaq: WKHS) (“Workhorse” or “the Company”), an American technology company focused on pioneering the transition to zero-emission commercial vehicles, today announced the addition of Milea Truck Sales and Leasing to its growing Certified Dealer network. With locations in the Bronx and Brooklyn, Milea Truck Sales and Leasing marks Workhorse’s second dealer partner in New York state, 12th dealer nationwide, and its latest addition to the Certified Dealer Program.

The Certified Dealer Program is an initiative to develop an official network of verified dealers that have passed the protocols necessary to safely repair and maintain the electric components of Workhorse vehicles. Through this partnership, Milea Truck Sales and Leasing will offer Workhorse's full innovative lineup of electric commercial vehicles, providing customers with access to state-of-the-art transportation solutions that are environmentally conscious and cost-effective.

As a family-owned business deeply rooted in our community, we're excited to add our first zero-emission commercial electric vehicles to our portfolio of work trucks. With the strong incentives available to fleet operators throughout the state, we are confident that there will be healthy demand for Workhorse’s best-in-class vehicles.”
