Nikola Motor Receives Over $2.3 Billion in Electric Truck Orders
Designed by the former Chief Designer of Isuzu’s commercial truck division, Steve Jennes, now Chief Designer of Nikola Motors, the 'Nikola One' - one of the most advanced electric trucks on the market - has received over two billion dollars in early pre-orders, showing demand for the electric revolution is clearly there.
A long-range vehicle with a methane range extender and a 320 kw battery pack, getting up to 1,200 miles on a full charge (with the range extender), the Nikola One is, as Nikola Motors CEO Trevor Milton notes,
10-15 years ahead of any other OEM in fuel efficiencies, MPG and emissions...We are the only OEM to have a near zero emission truck and still outperform diesel trucks running at 80,000 pounds. To have over 7,000 reservations totaling more than 2.3 billion dollars, with five months remaining until our unveiling ceremony, is unprecedented.
According to their website, the truck boasts:
- 6X6 100% Electric drive
- Zero idle
- Many times cleaner than diesel engines
- 1/2 the fuel cost per mile compared to diesel
- 3,700 FT. LBS Torque
- 2,000 Horsepower
