Lordstown Motors has released a video of a working prototype of its electric pickup truck marketed as a vehicle for the “working man”.
The startup has partially gotten rid of Workhorse, which is working on its plug-in hybrid pickup truck. The former plans to use EV technologies to build their own all-electric pickup truck at the Lordstown factory, which they bought from GM last year.
Lordstown Motors is aggressively pushing for its first vehicles to be delivered by the end of the year and has subsequently extended the 2021 timeframe.
We cling to Lordstown from time to time, as there is no format for working on time.
Last month, the company held an unveiling event at its factory and produced a prototype of the truck on stage, showcasing a working vehicle for the first time.
Now, Lordstown Motors released a new video of the truck with a prototype of the electric pickup truck at work:
The new teaser explicitly markets the pickup truck as a vehicle for the “working man”.
It exhibits some of the most interesting features, such as the power outlet in the bed to power some power equipment using a powertrain battery:
