Lordstown Motors has revealed the first renderings of the inside of its all-electric pickup truck. The Lordstown Endurance will feature a look familiar to truck enthusiasts with some unique touches.
It looks like the cabin is outfitted in a mix of gray and black materials. There is a fair amount of visible molded hard plastic surfaces though the model is no less attractive inside than the most modern Chevy Silverado.
Door, window, and mirror controls all appear basic but functional. It looks to come with automatic locks, with a physical locking mechanism next to the door handle.

On the driver’s side, it appears that the leftmost vent is pointed directly at the driver with no way to adjust it from side to side or open to close. It rests in a swath of piano black plastic that extends across the entire width of the vehicle to the opposing side’s vent, where there’s a matching vent.
The steering wheel appears to be made of urethane though it has haptic controls for volume, cruise control, seeking, Mode (drive mode?), a map, information, bluetooth, and phone call pickup/hangup. The Lordstown logo is front and center.
In front of the driver is a large screen that runs all the way across to where the infotainment screen is traditionally located. Whether this will be one large screen like in the 2021 Cadillac Escalade or two separate screens under one housing remains to be seen.
Below that are more vents, this time overly adjustable, and climate controls that appear easy enough to navigate at first glance.

The center console has a rotary shifter up front with toggle for the parking brake and traction control directly behind it. Beyond is the push-button start, which is adjacent to a slot that looks big enough to hold a smartphone and two cupholders. The center console armrest is raised but does not appear to be plushly padded.
Seats appear to be upholstered in gray cloth on the two front bucket seats, a material similar to what is found on the door panels, dashboard, and center console. It looks like the driver’s seat is at least six-way power-adjustable.
Dark floor carpeted mats sit on the floor embroidered with the company’s logo.
Door pockets include bottle holders and additional storage space.
At first glance, it appears that the rearview mirror is a rearview camera mirror, based on its thickness and lack of toggle switch. Visors offer cutouts for items to be clipped to them and overhead lights have look to have traditional functionality.
The truck is the first product from the company, which announced their intent in 2019 to build 20,000 trucks in 2021.
The Lordstown Endurance runs only on electric power. It has a in-wheel drive system that utilizes four hub motors that work independently and cooperatively. Lordstown says that the company’s motors are 95 percent efficient and deliver a 75MPGe rating.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, which effected the company’s ability to re-tool the plant and product delays from suppliers, delivery of the first trucks has been delayed to late summer 2020.
The Endurance will cost $52,500 before tax credits. Pre-orders can be placed now on the company’s website for a $100 deposit.
