LORDSTOWN, OH—Lordstown Motors Corp. has received more than 100,000 nonbinding reservations from commercial fleets for its Endurance all-electric pickup truck, with production scheduled to start here in September. The average order size is nearly 600 vehicles per fleet.
“Receiving 100,000 pre-orders from commercial fleets for a truck like the Endurance is unprecedented in automotive history,” says Steve Burns, CEO of Lordstown Motors. “Adding in the interest we have from federal, state, municipal and military fleets on top of that, I think you can see why we feel that we are about to revolutionize the pickup truck industry.”
The Lordstown Endurance is a full-size, all-electric pickup that has a range of 250 miles, the equivalent of 600 hp and can tow up to 7,500 pounds. After successful prototype and Apha builds, Lordstown is now building the first Beta Endurance vehicles and is on track for production to start in September of this year. The initial Endurance is a crew cab configuration with medium bed length, priced at $45,000 after federal rebate.
Lordstown was founded by Burns with the purpose of transforming Ohio's Mahoning Valley and Lordstown, OH, into the epicenter of electric-vehicle manufacturing. The company owns the 785 acre, 6.2-million-square-foot Lordstown Assembly Plant where it plans to build the Endurance, believed to be the world's first full-size, all-electric pickup truck designed to serve the commercial fleet market.
