There’s an immediate contrast between the Lordstown Endurance electric pickup and the Tesla Cybertruck, as well as the Rivian R1T. Although the Endurance would not be mistaken for a petrol-powered Ford F-150, its overall design is far more conventional. The reason behind this thinking is that Lordstown caters to fleets and they prefer to serve their customers with the best intentions.
Arstechnica.com asked about the design decisions and they responded that they’d made it so for its customers as most like to stripe their trucks with their colours. Lordstown still created something unique and recognizable so it’s a win-win for all involved. The same thinking applies to the cabin where the Endurance is not a show truck but a tool to get the job down.
And the job will get done indeed with individual hub motors for each wheel, instead of a regular electric motor per axle. This frees up plenty of space within the truck’s structure for battery packs. The specs are impressive, to say the least. Total out will be rated at an expected 600 horsepower with a sustained 2,000 lb.-ft of torque. Max torque will ring in at 4,400 lb.-ft. Lordstown expects that the range will be of 250 miles or just over 400 km, and that the truck will tow up to 7,500 lbs.
Production is slated to begin in 2021 and Lordstown plans to build 20,000 units per year. As it stands, they already a year’s worth of orders.
