The Lordstown Motors Endurance electric pickup made its official debut during an online event late last month. The start-up company, which purchased the Lordstown Assembly plant from General Motors last year, only released photos of the truck’s exterior and at the time said the interior would be shown at a later date.
We’re happy to report the interior of the Lordstown Endurance has now been revealed in a series of digital renderings released by the company this week. We’ll have to wait until later this year or early next year to see actual photos of the electric pickup truck’s cabin, but for now, these digital mock-ups will have to do.
As we can see from the renderings, the Lordstown Endurance will have a very similar interior to other current pickup trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado. With a four-spoke multifunction steering wheel, push-button start, a rotary-style gear selector and a wide, flat center console, the Endurance follows the same recipe as virtually every other pickup on sale today. However, the widescreen infotainment display, which also doubles as the driver’s display, is a bit of a departure for this segment. The ultra-wide monitor reminds us of the 38-inch OLED display found in the new 2021 Cadillac Escalade – though this unit does not appear to be curved like the Cadillac’s.
The Lordstown Endurance is designed as a fleet vehicle first and foremost, so it’s good to see the company has blended contemporary interior styling and features with more utilitarian items. For example, the truck appears to have chunky dials and buttons to control the HVAC, rather than hiding these settings away in the touch-operated display screen. We also spot a tablet-shaped storage slot in the center console, which could be useful for project managers that need to stay connected when hopping between job sites. Don’t overlook the beefy A-pillar grab handles and chunky door handles, either.
All Lordstown Endurance pickups will come standard with our in-wheel hub motors that will provide a maximum output of 600 horsepower and 2,000 pound-feet of torque. The company has not said how big its in-house lithium-ion battery pack will be but claims it will be able to provide more than 250 miles of driving range from a single charge. The truck will have a maximum towing capacity of 7,500 lbs and will be electronically limited to 80 mph.
Prices for the Endurance start at $52,500 for the entry-level model when sales begin later this year or early next year.
