I caught this on the stockmarket news....“Lordstown Motors Corp. said it already has begun metal stamping and welding for the Endurance All-Electric Pickup Truck prototypes, which will be used for testing. Full production of the Endurance pickups is slated to begin in September at the former General Motors assembly plant near Youngstown, which Lordstown Motors bought in 2019...their stock has dropped and they are trying to raise capitol they do a side by side comparsion with the a ford gasoline pickup....https://lordstownmotors.com/

The more I think about it the more I believe our leaders are disconnected from reality.

Like the aggressive push to go all electric by biden doesn't deal with reality.

Who the hell can afford one and maintain one? When they already have a car that has another 8-20 years of life to go.

Example I need gas engine vehicle for my particular needs because electric won't even come close to meeting needs. At least not for many decades. So by the time one, that would work for me I will most likely bee too old I don't want to even mess with one. And will stick to gas for rest of my life. Even if one became available If I still had another 8-10 years on my current one I won't be looking to replace it because that is lost money replacing a vehicle prematurely.

Lordstown Motors, the startup electric truck maker, warned Tuesday it is close to running out of cash and may be forced out of business in the next year....The company filing said it had $259.7 million in cash on hand as of March 31, after posting a net loss of $125.2 million over the previous three months.

Was hoping Lordstown Motors would make since it is about 30-40 minutes from me.Would bring a lot of jobs,but it seems they are running into the ground already.

They havent given up yet... "Startup electric truck maker Lordstown Motors said Tuesday that it's still on track to begin production this fall despite a management shakeup this week and a warning just days earlier that it may not be in business a year from now.

"Angela Strand, the company's new chairwoman, said the upheaval from the past week won't interrupt the company's day-to-day operations or its plans to start making its full-size pickup, called the Endurance."
