Lordstown Motors is continuing the slow tease of its Endurance electric pickup this week, now revealing interior photos ahead of the truck’s launch next year.
Much like the interiors of the Tesla Cybertruck and Rivian R1T, the cabin of the Endurance is dominated by screens rather than physical buttons. A long frame on the dashboard houses three separate screens, underneath of which sit physical climate-control knobs. Other notable features inside the five-seat truck include a rotary shifter and large cup holders. The cabin has a decidedly industrial feel with stark metallic accents, and the overall interior aesthetic matches the minimalist design of the exterior.

The Endurance will have no shortage of rivals. The Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T, GMC Hummer, and Bollinger B2 are all expected to launch next year as well. Meanwhile, Ford is preparing an electric F-150 to arrive in mid-2022. The Endurance will produce up to 600 horsepower with the help of up to four electric in-hub motors, as well as offer a range exceeding 250 miles. Towing capacity is expected to come in at 7,500 pounds, and the Ohio-based company recently released a video showing the Endurance hard at work on the job site. In addition, the company claims sports-car-like handling and that it wants the Endurance to be the safest pickup ever, bold statements that may or may not match reality. We are, however, quite keen to slide behind the wheel and at least test the handling and acceleration of Lordstown’s electric pickup truck—and hopefully not its safety equipment.
Drivers should be able to travel relatively long distances in the Endurance, as the truck’s range is estimated to exceed 250 miles. Prices will start at $52,500 once the truck starts rolling out of Lordstown’s Lordstown, Ohio, plant, which was once owned by GM.
