The electric pickup truck market is quickly becoming saturated with both startups and veteran automakers, and the latest company to officially debut its electric pickup is Lordstown Motors and its Endurance truck.

The official Endurance reveal on June 25 at the Lordstown Motors factory in Ohio, while not as wildly hyped as the first-ever electric pickup truck debut by Tesla, saw guests like Vice President Mike Pence and US Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette.

Although Tesla held its unveiling event seven months before Lordstown Motors, the Endurance is set to beat the controversial Cybertruck to the market. According to Lordstown, the Endurance will be the first fully electric pickup truck in the US with plans to begin deliveries in the late summer of 2021.

This may be sooner than Tesla, which will begin production of the Cybertruck in late 2021 with its single-motor rear-wheel-drive variant beginning production in late 2022, according to Tesla’s website.

Despite the electrified characteristics of each of the rival vehicles, the Endurance and the Cybertruck’s three variants (single-motor rear-wheel-drive, dual-motor all-wheel-rive, and tri-motor all-wheel-drive) all have differences in specs like top speed and seating capacity, although there are some specific performance similarities between the Endurance and Cybertruck’s single-motor vehicle.

Here’s how the Endurance compares to the Cybertruck:
