Lordstown claims to now have received more than 100,000 pre-orders for its electric pickup truck ahead of the start of production later this year.
Lordstown Endurance electric pickup truck
Lordstown, an electric vehicle startup that spun out of Workhorse and GM’s sale of its Lordstown factory, unveiled the Endurance electric pickup truck at an event at the Lordstown factory last year.
The Lordstown Endurance starts at $52,500 with a range of “over 250 miles,” but one of the most interesting things about the Endurance is the fact that Lordstown decided to use four in-wheel hub motors to power it.
They are currently building production capacity at the factory in Ohio to start production in September 2021.

More than 100,000 pre-orders for the Electric Pickup
Only a few month ago, in November, Lordstown announced that it received 50,000 pre-orders for its electric pickup truck.
Now Lordstown says that it has surpassed 100,000 reservations for the Endurance.
Steve Burns, CEO of Lordstown Motors, commented on the announcement:
Receiving 100,000 pre-orders from commercial fleets for a truck like the Endurance is unprecedented in automotive history. 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.
As Burns points out, Lordstown is focusing on fleet orders instead of on individual consumers.
