Lordstown Motors, the electric truck startup, has announced that it is pausing production and deliveries of its Endurance electric pickup truck. The company also said it is recalling 19 vehicles that were previously delivered to customers in order to address potential safety issues relating to the truck’s brakes. This marks a major setback for the fledging automaker, as it struggles to prove its legitimacy and demonstrate that its products are both safe and reliable. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at what happened with Lordstown Motors’ latest recall and what this means for the future of the company.
Lordstown Motors halts production of the Endurance electric pickup truck
Lordstown Motors has announced that it is halting production of the Endurance electric pickup truck. The move comes as the company faces a number of challenges, including a recall of its vehicles due to a potential safety issue.
The decision to halt production of the Endurance was made “in order to further assess a recent issue with one of our suppliers,” according to Lordstown Motors. The company did not elaborate on the nature of the issue, but it is believed to be related to the recall of the Endurance EVs.
In addition to halting production of the Endurance, Lordstown Motors has also recalled all of the vehicles that have been delivered to customers. The recall is being conducted “out of an abundance of caution,” and Lordstown says that there have been no reports of accidents or injuries related to the issue.
Customers who have purchased an Endurance EV will be contacted by Lordstown Motors and advised on how to proceed. Those who have not yet taken delivery of their vehicle will have their order canceled and will be refunded in full.
This is a developing story, and we will provide more updates as they become available.
19 vehicles are recalled due to a potential issue with the drive train
In the wake of discovering a potential issue with the drivetrain of its all-electric Endurance pickup truck, Lordstown Motors has announced that it is halting production and deliveries of the vehicle while it works to correct the problem. The company says that a small number of vehicles may be affected by the issue, which could result in reduced power or stalling while driving. Lordstown is working with suppliers to identify and correct the root cause of the problem, and says that it will begin resuming production and deliveries once the issue has been resolved. In the meantime, customers who have already received their Endurance trucks will be contacted by Lordstown and advised to bring their vehicles in for service.
Lordstown is working with suppliers to fix the issue
Lordstown is working with suppliers to fix the issue and expects to have a resolution soon. In the meantime, they are pausing production and deliveries of their Endurance electric vehicles.
This comes as a bit of a surprise, as Lordstown had only recently started shipping the Endurance to customers. However, it appears that there was an issue with one of the suppliers that has caused a delay in production. Lordstown is currently working on resolving the issue and expects to have a resolution soon.
In the meantime, they are pausing production and deliveries of their Endurance electric vehicles. This will undoubtedly cause some inconvenience for customers who were expecting to receive their vehicle soon, but Lordstown is committed to ensuring that the vehicles meet their high standards before they are delivered.
