Lordstown Motors Acquires GM’s Factory, Reveals First EV Pickup Sketches

Lordstown Motors completed the acquisition of GM’s manufacturing complex in Lordstown, Ohio, where they will build an all-electric pickup truck.

On March 6th, 2019, General Motors ended production at its Lordstown, Ohio Assembly plant. Soon after, the news broke that Workhorse Group was buying the plant from GM.

Now, late last week, on November 7th, Lordstown Motors, in which Workhorse Group has a 10% stake, officially announced the acquisition of the factory. The Workhorse Group will be the ones providing the electric drive technology for the all-new, all-electric pickup truck.

We are committed to the people of Lordstown, we will locate our headquarters in the Lordstown plant, and we plan to build the Endurance pickup truck utilizing experienced workers who helped produce millions of vehicles in this very same plant,” said Steve Burns, LMC CEO.

Starting in late 2020, Lordstown Motors Corp. will begin production of an all-electric pickup truck purpose-built for fleets, the Endurance.

The Lordstown Motors Endurance will become the “first production vehicle that utilizes a 4-wheel-drive hub-motor system” according to the press release.

Since it will be built specifically for fleets, the Endurance will come with features designed to make life easier, like the onboard power export.

Lordstown Motors wants to make the Endurance the safest, most economical, and greenest electric pickup truck ever built.

You can take a look below at the sketches released by Lordstown Motors Corp. of the Endurance all-electric pickup.
