It has been a difficult week for electric car enthusiasts all over the United States. First, we heard that Tesla had halted Model 3 production due to battery shortages. Then, we learned that Lordstown, the company that made the popular Endurance electric pickup truck, would be recalling the trucks it has already delivered.
Endurance EVs have long been the go-to choice for environmentally-conscious drivers, but their production has come to an end at Lordstown. The plant that builds these vehicles has announced that it will be halting production of electric trucks in order to focus on other projects.
This news comes as a bit of a surprise, as many were expecting the company to continue churning out electric trucks. However, the market for these vehicles has slowly been shrinking, and the company has decided that it is time to shift its focus.
While this may be a sad development for some, it is clear that the market for electric trucks is still growing. This is a reminder that there is still a lot of potential for this kind of technology, and it is likely that other companies will soon start producing them in greater numbers.
