There’s a new electric pickup that has just been unveiled in the US, and it’s not a Tesla, a Nikola, or a Rivian. The one pictured above is the Lordstown Endurance, and it’s the newest battery powered truck in, er, town.
If the name somehow rings a bell, then that’s probably because you may have already read about it on this space before. Lordstown Motors first previewed the Endurance back in December, and now that we’ve seen the finished product, we have to say that it looks even better than those initial renders.
The Endurance is a stylish all-electric machine that boasts 600hp and a maximum speed of 128kph. It can seat up to five people and has a towing capacity of over 3.4 metric tons. It promises a maximum range of more than 400km with a fully-charged battery.
Said battery, meanwhile, takes 10 hours to fully recharge with a standard charger, or anywhere between 30 minutes to one and a half hours with fast charging. The vehicle sends power to all four wheels through four dedicated in-wheel hub motors that are said to significantly improve performance.
All in all, the truck costs $52,500 (around P2.68 million) and it’s set to go on sale soon. Interested customers can now preorder one for $100 (about P5,000). Would you take the Lordstown Endurance over the other fully-electric trucks that have been revealed in the past year?
