LORDSTOWN, Ohio, Feb. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lordstown Motors Corp.
(Nasdaq: RIDE), (“Lordstown Motors”), a leader in electric light duty
trucks focused on the commercial fleet market, has entered the Endurance Beta
skateboard in the 2021 SCORE International San Felipe 250, part of the SCORE
World Desert Championship race series. The 290-mile single loop race will
start and finish in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico on April 17, 2021.

By taking the Endurance to the Mexican desert race course, which is considered
one of the most grueling and punishing in the world, Lordstown Motors is
setting out to prove that the Endurance is not only one of the safest, most
efficient trucks on the planet, but also that it is the toughest, most robust
as it tackles the San Felipe Desert.

“We feel that it is quite a significant milestone for the electric vehicle
community that an electric pickup truck can compete in an environment as
demanding as Baja California,” said Steve Burns, CEO of Lordstown Motors.
“Our goal is to be the first electric vehicle to ever complete the San
Felipe 250, and with the superior traction, weight balance and advanced
software control of our hub motor-based Endurance, we are confident that we
will do just that.”

After being postponed in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 San
Felipe 250, held in April on Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, will be the
SCORE World Desert Championship season-opener for the ninth straight season.

The Lordstown Endurance is a full-size, all-electric pickup that has a range
of 250 miles, the equivalent of 600hp and can tow up to 7,500lbs. After
successful prototype and Alpha builds, Lordstown is now building the first
Beta Endurance vehicles and is on track for start of production in September
of this year. The initial Endurance is a crew cab configuration with medium
bed length, priced at $45,000 after federal rebate.
