Nikola Motors Launched Hybrid Fuel-cell Concept Truck With 600-Mile Range

The company however unveiled on Monday a concept called The Badger for a new electric vehicle.

As a battery electric vehicle and an electric / fuel cell hybrid, Nikola plans to offer Badger. The company estimates that the hybrid drive model will be around 600 miles in length, while the battery model will not be used for more than 300 miles.

It also notes that in approximately 2.9 seconds the pickup will pull up to 8,000 pounds and accelerate in between 0 to 60 miles an hour. Such features would make the Badger nearly equivalent to the cybertruck of Tesla if Nikola could produce them.

As for the truck, the company says it will fully detail the Badger at its upcoming Nikola World 2020 event in September, at which point it will start accepting limited reservations as well.

The Badger, if it turns out to be more than a concept, will enter a field that is quickly becoming crowded. Beyond obvious competitors like the Cybertruck, there are vehicles like the upcoming Hummer, Rivian R1T and eventual electric Ford F-150 for Nikola to worry about.
