Lordstown Motors needs to recreate a few of that Tesla magic with its personal tug-of-war battle. When you recall, Tesla famously (or infamously) examined a in a tug-of-war match, solely to have the Cybertruck drag the F-150 away. These types of checks are principally irrelevant on the finish of the day, however a startup like Lordstown wants all of the eyeballs it may get paying consideration.
So, what we have now right here in a video the corporate posted Wednesday is a trucks. The outcomes present the Endurance beginning to pull the F-150 away. The startup additionally emphazied that this check happened on moist grass.and a preproduction . One is the best-selling pickup truck within the US. The opposite is an upcoming electrical truck made completely for business fleets. With a strap hooked to the each of them, Lordstown stated it positioned the F-150 in four-wheel drive low mode and turned the traction management off for each
The purpose of the terrain was to point out what sort of traction the Endurance’s in-wheel motors can create, but it surely additionally opens up another query similar to what sorts of tires each vans featured. Moist grass is hardly the most effective place to seek out traction. Ford did not instantly return a request for remark.
If something, I like seeing this video as proof Lordstown truly has a working truck. In-wheel motors are an enormous leap ahead if the startup can truly convey the know-how to life. Lordstown plans to start out manufacturing of the Endurance early subsequent yr and has stated beforehand it hasfor the pickup to date.
