Video: Take a Tour of Lordstown Motors

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Lordstown Motors Corp. is taking viewers on a virtual tour of the former General Motors Lordstown plant, where the company looks to build its line of Endurance electric pick-up trucks.

“If we were to build this from scratch, it just wouldn’t be possible. They aren’t going to make buildings like this again,” said CEO Steve Burns, who narrates the video. “We’re taking it, we’re reconfiguring it for our purposes, and we’ve been really pleased with the equipment here and the resources we’ve been able to find. To produce a vehicle is not trivial…it takes a lot of automation and a lot of people, and this plant has been perfect for us.”

In April, Lordstown Motors pushed back the launch of its Endurance electric-powered pickup to January 2021 because of COVID-19, the disease spread by the coronavirus. The first trucks were initially scheduled to be delivered to customers late this year.
