(ONN) – Vice President Mike Pence took part in the unveiling of an all-electric pickup truck being manufactured in the former General Motors plant near Youngstown.
Pence described the new venture as “a new beginning for Lordstown and a new day of leadership for electric vehicles.”
Lordstown Motors took over the shuttered GM plant late last year.
The company says that the truck has “the fewest moving parts of any motor vehicle,” which will lead to “fewer maintenance costs and lower total cost of ownership.”
The truck’s base price is $52,500.
