Lordstown Motors

Manufacturing is one of the first sectors scheduled to open back up in Ohio and it can't come soon enough for the Cincinnati owner of Lordstown Motors, who says the company will begin production of the world's first fully electric pickup truck in January 2021. This is a delay from the original production date in the fall of 2020.

The Cincinnati man who bought the massive GM Lordstown plant is in fundraising mode as he prepares to manufacture electric pick-up trucks at the plant.
