GM and Lordstown Motors Both Say Their Electric Pickups Are Coming Soon

By Colin Beresford, Car and Driver

  • On the same day Tesla rolls out its own electric "Cybertruck," startup Lordstown Motors said it's now taking $1000 deposits on an all-electric pickup for late 2020 deliveries.
  • Separately, General Motors CEO Mary Barra promised a GM electric pickup truck will be out in late 2021.
  • The late-2021 date is in line with when Tesla's truck is expected on the market, according to a Reuters report.

Just a couple of weeks after Lordstown Motors acquired GM's Lordstown plant in Ohio, it has announced that it is accepting orders for the 2021 Lordstown Endurance electric pickup truck. The EV starts at $52,500 and will reach the public late next year.

Lordstown said that the initial focus of the truck will be for fleets, but the company is also taking orders for private use. We know few details other than what can be seen from renderings, other than that the pickup will be four-wheel drive.

News of Lordstown’s EV comes the same day that Tesla is set to reveal what it's calling "Cybertruck." Separately, GM CEO Mary Barra announced that General Motors will build its own electric pickup truck, which she said will become available in the fall of 2021. The only detail she offered was that "It will be a very capable truck." There has been speculation that GM would build an electric pickup, possibly on the same platform as an SUV that could be badged as a Hummer, at its Hamtramck plant near Detroit.
