So does this mean they are going to be first?

Hub motors are such a cool idea. As soon as I saw that I was curious... but their tech limits the truck to 80 mph. They say that is a software limit but it seems like it might be a software limit because it is the hub motors limit. How many people will want a truck that tops out at 80?

Hopefully the hub motors don't end up sinking the company.
Hub motors are not really a great application for a pickup.

Uh, big pickups have been governed run since at least 2000. My F250 will only go 85 verfied without mucking with the software.

I didn't know that. But still, depending on their hub motor technology that software limit might be "hiding" hardware RPM limits to the motor. That would be different than your F250's software limitation. If Lordstown really is only software limiting much more capable hub motors, that would be really, really cool. It would be more like the Orbis Wheel than a QSMotor.

Hub motors move space requirements out of the vehicle, get rid of the gearbox, and allow for some very interesting suspension geometries. I would agree that they do not appear to be a perfect fit for low end torque on a vehicle that hauls, like a pickup.

I'm a bit behind. Last time I looked, a hub motor (not on a bicycle or trike) had not lasted longer than a set of tires. Has someone got a production model yet that does?

If they are so great then why has no one tried to make a hub motor on road vehicle?

Still to this day no one has demonstrated a hub motor used "on road" that can out last a set of tires.
It would be all over the Internet if they did.

Maybe they wouldn't be so bad at all, since they could allow the cargo bay floor to sit lower due to the absence of a differential housing which would allow the use either of a simpler tube-axle or some fully-independent suspension with a single swingarm on each side instead of a rear axle.
