LORDSTOWN, Ohio – Lordstown Motors Corp. showed off its inaugural vehicle, the all-electric Endurance pickup, at the NTEA Work Truck Week expo in Indianapolis, the company reports.
Work Truck Week, held this year from March 9-11, is North America’s largest work truck event. Produced annually by NTEA, the trade association for the work truck industry, the event includes work truck show exhibits, education and training, a green truck summit, and networking.
“The Lordstown Endurance is a unique vehicle offering a superior combination of handling, traction control, torque and turning radius that we are confident will be appreciated by our fleet customers,” Lordstown Motors President Edward T. Hightower said in a statement last week. “With fewer moving parts than more conventional propulsion systems, we also believe the Endurance will have advantages in total cost of ownership.”
Commercial production of the Endurance is expected to begin during the third quarter of 2022. The company is currently manufacturing preproduction vehicles used for validation and testing purposes.
Recently, the Endurance went to Baudette, Minnesota to perform extreme cold weather temperature testing in temperatures down to -40F, the company reported. The truck performed various handling and durability tests to prove out the key vehicle systems in the most extreme conditions.
The Endurance was also sent to Cape Canaveral, Fla., to perform high-speed testing scenarios.
