Lordstown has revealed the interior of its upcoming Endurance electric pickup truck set for deliveries next year.
The new startup has been created in an opportunistic way.
It partly spun out of Workhorse, which has been working on its own plug-in hybrid pickup truck, and a deal to acquire the Lordstown factory from GM last year.
Steve Burns, who founded Lordstown Motors, made it clear that the company was built around the deal with GM to acquire the factory and finance the reconfiguration to build electric vehicles at the location.
The company’s plan is to quickly bring an all-electric pickup truck to market and become the first to market with a production electric vehicle to be equipped with in-wheel hub electric motors.
In June, the automaker unveiled the Endurance electric pickup truck at an event at the Lordstown factory.
Now, they are unveiling the vehicle’s interior — or at least the cockpit — with the first few pictures:
The electric pickup features a large instrument cluster screen that extends to the right center to act as a center display.
It also features analog buttons.
