Nikola Motor Company seems to be clear, its strategy is to become the Tesla trucks with Nikola One, an electric-hybrid truck that already has 7.000 orders only 1 month since its official launch.
The truth is that look good with batteries that generate 320 KWh to travel to 2.000 kilometers. In addition, a natural gas turbine propulsion system complements the recharging energy generating up 400 KW power. The kinetic energy of braking is also used and the engine produces up 2.000 CV. For power is not the truth.
According to the company, its technology is far ahead of its competitors, even they dare to say that among 10 and 15 years old. the only manufacturer capable of manufacturing a truck almost zero emissions and are considered better features than current diesel trucks.
The reserves represent more than 2,3 million and leasing strategy will stop the monthly price between 4.000 and 5.000 dollars depending on the vehicle configuration and the options chosen by the customer. The company offers the first million miles of fuel included in the sale of the truck, which compensates loosely vehicle purchase.
A different concept that can shake the current kings of the market as Volvo, Daimler, Scania and Co., and will be presented to customers with reservations and other potential customers in Salt Lake City (United States) the 2 from December to 2016. Very interesting.
