Lordstown To Launch Electric Van In 2022 And Source Batteries From LG Chem

Lordstown’s skateboard platform will serve as the base for more vehicles in the future


  • The batteries will be for the Endurance, Lordstown’s electric pickup.

  • Lordstown signed a multi-year agreement with LG Chem for batteries.

  • An electric van is on the way, as might be an SUV.


2021 is shaping up to be an exciting year for electric vehicles. Lordstown, one of the many EV start-ups, is getting things moving with a new electric van which should be revealed in June. They’ve also confirmed that they’ve secured a battery supplier for their Endurance pickup.

The Lordstown Endurance is one of a handful of electric pickups that will be on the road in about a year’s time. In fact, Lordstown has confirmed that deliveries will begin later this year, as reported by Green Car Reports. 57 beta prototypes are being assembled for various tests, and they should be ready by March.

The electric van will be assembled on the same skateboard platform as the Endurance and use the same electric hub motors. Production for the van is said to begin in the second half of 2022.

Unlike most other automakers, Lordstown’s vehicles are aimed at fleets which means they may benefit heavily from President Biden’s plan to electrify the Federal fleet. In fact, they’ve been added to the United States General Services Administration listing.
