A New Ohio Workforce v

An upstart electric vehicle maker says it now has more than 100,000 orders for its new pickup truck. Lordstown Motors plans to begin production of the Endurance All-Electric Pickup Truck in September…at a former General Motors assembly plant near Youngstown. The company took over the plant after GM in 2019 ended its more than 50 years of car manufacturing at the plant. The automaker employed 4,500 workers there just a few years ago. Lordstown Motors acquired the plant with the help of a $40 million dollar loan from GM. The startup said it will hire hundreds of people to build to the first line of Endurance trucks, but its long-term plan is to add thousands of jobs.
