When the police and emergency services arrived on the scene, the truck was engulfed in flames. Nobody was hurt in this incident. The test vehicle’s body and bed resemble the previous generation Chevy Silverado 1500 or Sierra 1500 trucks. While the test mule may look like a Chevy pickup, the final Lordstown Endurance trucks will have their own unique style.
The Lordstown truck’s powertrain includes four in-hub electric motors for all-wheel-drive or 4-wheel-drive capability. The company is planning to build 57 Beta prototype trucks for further testing. Most of these Beta trucks are expected to be completed in March 2021.
