Workhorse has been building 2 distinct models of the C-1000 for all of 2021.
The giant white all-one-piece composite unibody model
and a C-1000s built from gray primered honeycomb cored individual composite body panels.
They are not "scrapping" the C-1000. They have about $600 million dollars worth of orders for a 1000 cubic foot electric step van. What they are doing is redesigning the chassis to increase the amount of weight that it can carry. They will still be building a 1000 cubic ft step van. It just won't weigh nearly as much or need nearly as many batteries as the competition.
