Lordstown Motors shows the interior of its Endurance electric pickup

Lordstown Motors now offers some renderings that show how their upcoming electric-powered pickup Endurance looks on the inside. The official, virtual unveiling of the pre-production prototype of the company’s first purely electric pickup is scheduled on June 25, on Thursday next week, joining the pickups from Tesla, Rivian, and others.

Although it is intended for commercial users, it seems that the vehicle will have a high-tech and modern interior. From the pictures, we can see that the car receives a digital instrument cluster on a large screen that extends all the way to the infotainment system area. Between the front seats is not a third seat but instead a substantial armrest that teaches many storage options.

Endurance has four in-wheel hub motors that deliver 600 horsepower and draw energy from a 70-80 kWh lithium-ion battery, which gives a range of between 200 and 260 miles (or between 322 and just under 420 km). The model is expected to draw attention with 0-100 data in 5.5 seconds. It has a towing capacity of 6,000 lb (2,721 kg) and a top speed of 80 mph (just under 130 km/h).

Besides, the Endurance has the fewest moving parts of any motor vehicle. This advancement leads to fewer maintenance costs and a significantly lower total cost of ownership than traditional commercial vehicles.

As for the price of the electric pickup, it will be available with a targeted base price of $52,000. Hydra Design Labs and Lordstown are currently actively working on the prototype show car, which will be unveiled next week. The Lordstown team has also announced that the production of the model is planned for the end of 2020, and vehicle deliveries will begin in the first quarter of 2021.
