Lordstown Motors has simply launched a brand new video presenting a tug of battle problem between the prototype of the 2021 Lordstown Endurance all-electric pickup truck and the standard 2019 Ford F-150 Lariat EcoBoost with the drive mode set to 4WD-Low.
Due to the plain benefits of all-electric drive (particularly excessive torque) and the promotional character of the video, we didn’t count on something however a win for Lordstown.
And that’s precisely what occurred. The quad-motor Endurance, with peak output of some 440 kW, beat the all-wheel-drive F-150 with ease it appears. Although we must always notice that this tug of battle contest slightly oddly takes place on grass the place traction could be very restricted.
In line with Lordstown, the traction management was turned off in the course of the take a look at:
“With each vans positioned in 4-wheel drive and traction management turned off, the match highlights the Endurance’s superior traction – a results of its revolutionary use of in-wheel hub motors – and proves it has the ability and performance to match the highest vans in its class, with improved efficiency, effectivity and security.”
When Tesla debuted its Cybertruck, it featured a video showing the electric truck easily beating the Ford F-150 in a tug of war contest. The was a variety of controversy surrounding the matchup although and there is was even hint of a rematch from Ford. Nevertheless, Ford later backed down from difficult the Cybertruck in a tug of battle problem.
Following all of these tug of battle battles that includes Fords towards the Cybertruck, a brand new sort emerged by which RC vehicles and even mini variations of the Cybertruck went face to face in tug of battle towards both different RC vehicles or even full-size SUVs.
The craziness did not finish there although. Only a whereas again we saw a tank being pulled by a Tesla and now there’s this video once more that includes a Ford F-150, however this time it is pitted towards the Lordstown Endurance. It appears these tug of battle challenges will proceed to air, although they show little to nothing regarding the functionality of the autos concerned.
