● EPA and CARB certification has been received

● FMVSS crash and non-crash testing successfully completed

● EnduranceTM advanced to finalist in the North American Truck of the Year competition

“I am very proud of the Lordstown Motors and Foxconn EV Ohio team for their hard work, grit, and tenacity in achieving this milestone,” said Edward Hightower, Lordstown president and CEO. “We are very excited to start delivering vehicles to our commercial fleet customers. The Endurance will provide benefits to customers that use their vehicles for work. It optimizes key attributes of traction and maneuverability – with our in-wheel hub motors, safety – with our five-star crash performance, and value in the segment.”

Hightower also said he is excited to have the Endurance advance as a finalist in the North American Truck of the Year competition. “We look forward to the judges’ announcement of the winner in January,” he said.
