Foxconn finds EVs are harder to build than iPhones - Autoblog
Over the past decade, Foxconn has built Apple iPhones. So far, though, trucks, tractors and cars are turning out to be a tougher slog than gadgets.
In January, Lordstown asked Foxconn to suspend production because the cost of making the trucks exceeded the targeted sale price of $65,000. A few weeks later it became clear that the Endurance suffered from, well, a lack of endurance. At least one owner reported that the truck had lost power while driving in cold weather, prompting the company in February to issue a recall. Then on March 6, Lordstown said that if it can’t team up with an experienced automaker, it would be forced to discontinue the pickup, its only model.
