The 2023 Lordstown Endurance has received its official EPA rating, and for those hoping for good news, you will be disappointed.
The Ohio-built EV only scored an EPA Combined Range of 174 miles (280 km). While on the Highway, it only scored a 169-mile range or 271 km.
That is despite the large 109 kWh battery pack, which the automaker hoped the EV pickup could get around 250 miles or 402 km of range. (via Inside EVs)
The issue seems to be the vehicle’s energy consumption. The MPGe of the Endurance is a shockingly low 48. For reference, the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning scored 68 MPGe, and the 2023 Rivian R1T scored 73 MPGe. Not only does this make the Endurance the worst EV pickup in terms of performance, but its 48 MPGe is the worst energy consumption rating since December 2010.
Some say it could be the all-wheel drive system that Lordstown is using. In contrast, others speculate that the truck could have other electrical issues.
No matter what, the vehicle seems to have fallen far short of Lordstown’s expectations. For instance, the 0-60 miles per hour speed is 6.3 seconds. In contrast, Lordstown expected around 5.5 seconds.

While we still do not know the official price, we do know that the pickup was not included in the official list of eligible EVs for the $7,500 tax credit.
