Holman Enterprises, a global automotive services organization, today announced a new partnership with Lordstown Motors, an Ohio-based original equipment manufacturer of all-electric, light-duty fleet vehicles. The strategic partnership will help to introduce the Lordstown Endurance, the first all-electric commercial pickup truck, to vocational fleet operators across North America.
Through this partnership, ARI, Holman Enterprises’ fleet management division, will provide fleet management services, including vehicle supply chain logistics, for the Endurance on behalf of their customers.
Additionally, Auto Truck Group, Holman Enterprises’ work truck upfitting and manufacturing company, will provide the design, manufacturing, and installation of specialized equipment and upfit for the Endurance to help customize the vehicle for a wide range of commercial applications.
“We believe Lordstown Motors’ commercial fleet strategy is a major step forward for the industry as a growing number of organizations look to integrate electric vehicles into their fleet operations,” said Chris Conroy, president and CEO, Holman Business Services. “The Endurance has the potential to deliver both immediate and long-term benefits to vocational fleet operators and we’re excited to help introduce the versatile pickup truck to this segment of the industry.”
“We are thrilled to announce this partnership and to work closely with Chris and the entire team at Holman Enterprises to provide the Endurance and its drivers with what we’ve designed to be the safest, most economical, and greenest pickup truck to ever hit the road,” said Lordstown CEO Steve Burns.
Burns pointed to the Endurance’s 75 MPG equivalent and fewer move parts than a traditional drivetrain as benefits to fleets.
