Former GM Plant Will Make Electric Trucks Featured

By Staff Writer November 12, 2019

Lordstown Motors Corp. (LMC), a new original equipment manufacturer, announced the acquisition of the GM manufacturing complex in Lordstown, Ohio. The move paves the way for LMC to begin production of the Endurance pickup truck, the industry’s first all-electric pickup truck purpose-built for fleets starting in late 2020.  

“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, CEO of LMC.

The 6.2 million-square-foot Lordstown factory is a fully equipped automotive plant that has produced over 16 million vehicles to date. Lordstown Motors will be licensing components of Workhorse Group‘s electric drive technology, a plan designed to achieve greater speed to market.
