Lordstown (RIDE:NSD) Halts Production Due to Quality Issues

Lordstown Motors Stops Production

Lordstown Motors Corp, an American electric vehicle maker, announced that it would temporarily halt production and deliveries of its Endurance pickup truck due to performance and quality issues with some components. The company has only produced 31 units for sale and has delivered 19 vehicles to customers or used internally, which it has voluntarily recalled. This news caused a drop in the company’s shares by 11.8% to $1.08 in early trading on Thursday.

Lordstown had aimed to deliver 50 vehicles in 2022 and more in 2023 out of the planned first batch of 500 units when commercial production started in September. However, the company did not clarify when it would resume production and deliveries.

Investor Foxconn, which also manufactures the Endurance trucks, did not immediately comment on this matter. Lordstown stated that vehicles waiting for shipment and in process at the manufacturing plant will be fixed before delivery.

In January, the company had expected slow production through its first quarter due to supply chain constraints, particularly with respect to the availability of hub motor components.
