Not to get political but this was a Biden call. He is the one that ordered the first ones to be purchased and he increased it the same day he demands more EV purchases and global we are going to die by the year 2000 cries.
It’is ok to hate who you like but at least attach the failure to the right elected idiots.
Also WorkHorse EV did also bid but they were not stable enough to get the contract. Their model was not great and they were going to have to work with unstable Lordstown motors to build them.
Their whole plan depended on the contract and government money to get the company running.
