Jan. 11, 2021—Lordstown Motors Corp., a manufacturer of light duty fleet vehicles, has received more than 100,000 reservations for an all-electric pickup truck.
The electric pickup, named Lordstown Endurance, has a 250 mile driving range, 600 hp, and can tow up to 7,500 lbs according to a press release.
“Receiving 100,000 pre-orders from commercial fleets for a truck like the Endurance is unprecedented in automotive history,” said Steve Burns, CEO of Lordstown Motors, in the press release. “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 truck is expected to enter production this September and start around $45,000.
