WASHINGTON, Sept 14 (Reuters) – Electric vehicle company Workhorse Group (WKHS.O) voluntarily dismissed on Tuesday its legal challenge against a U.S. Postal Service (USPS) move to award a multibillion-dollar contract to Oshkosh Defense (OSK.N) for making postal delivery vehicles.

The 10-year contract announced in February could be worth more than $6 billion in total. Workhorse had proposed building an all-electric vehicle fleet for USPS.

The challenge, filed in June, had been set to face arguments before a judge on Wednesday.
