No, but it will make it possible for a lot of gasoline and diesel pickup trucks in today’s fleets to be replaced by a zero emissions alternative.

It is making work trucks for fleet buyers like utility companies, public works departments, and the like.

“We really tried to strike a balance on the looks, since we cater to fleets,” Lordstown CEO Steve Burns told Ars Technica just prior to the official reveal last week.

The Lordstown Endurance is an American-made all-electric pickup truck with 4 in-wheel motors that use technology licensed from Elaphe, 600 horsepower, a stump-pulling maximum torque of 4,400 ft-lbs, and a range of 250 miles.

That news will trickle down and soon others will be waltzing in to Ford, Chevy, GMC, and Dodge dealerships asking when they too can buy an electric pickup truck.
