Electric truck maker Lordstown Motors announced that its Endurance full-size electric pickup truck has achieved full homologation, a key condition to start sales.
Certification has been received from both the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and CARB (California Air Resources Board).
These were the key conditions to start customer sales. The first units, of the initial batch of 500, are leaving the Foxconn EV Ohio plant for customer delivery.
As disclosed earlier, production volume will increase only slowly due to supply chain constraints.
Initially, the company is aiming to deliver about 50 trucks to customers by the end of the year and the remainder of the first batch in the first half of 2023.
“I am very proud of the Lordstown Motors and Foxconn EV Ohio team for their hard work, grit, and tenacity in achieving this milestone. We are very excited to start delivering vehicles to our commercial fleet customers. The EnduranceTM will provide benefits to customers that use their vehicles for work. It optimizes key attributes of traction and maneuverability – with our in-wheel hub motors, safety – with our five-star crash performance, and value in the segment,” said Edward Hightower, Lordstown CEO and President.
