Lordstown Motors Reports Strong Orders For New Pickup

Electric vehicle maker Lordstown Motors says it now has more than 100 thousand orders for its new pickup truck. Production began in September at the former GM plant in Lordstown. The firm says it will hire hundreds to build to the first line of trucks, but its long-term plan is to add thousands of jobs. The light duty truck is being marketed to commercial customers.
