“We are excited to demonstrate our C-1000 all-electric truck in Tampa this weekend alongside many other high-traffic Super Bowl weekend activities,” said Workhorse CEO Duane Hughes. “The C-1000 is truly a purpose-built vehicle, optimizing technology for today and the future, and we’re looking forward to demonstrating these innovative capabilities to the thousands of fans and visitors to the city. The Workhorse and Pritchard teams have purposefully organized our efforts in accordance with all local COVID-19 protocols to ensure a safe event for all.”

“Our event will help establish the criteria to become a ‘Purpose-Built’ or EV-Ready City,” added Pritchard Companies President & CEO Joe Pritchard. “This weekend will be fun for everyone involved, and we thank Tampa for hosting during such an exciting time for their football team and city.”

The Purpose Built National Campaign Event will be held on Saturday, February 6th at 10:00 AM ET, extending to Sunday where Pritchard is offering free rides to the Super Bowl from Tampa Bay Boulevard Elementary School.
