Nikola Badger Pickup (Battery / Fuel Cell) US

Post by DaveBerlin » Sun Feb 16, 2020 1:10 pm

It appears that now there is another Manufacturer in the race for E-Pickups called the Nikola Badger but it is a Battery and Fuel Cell Vehicle - Dave 😏

“Nikola Corporation, an Arizona-based startup that’s working on zero-emission big rigs, just announced that it’s following Tesla, Rivian, Ford, and General Motors into the electric pickup market with a truck called the Badger. The Badger is a fuel cell vehicle first and foremost, meaning it takes hydrogen from a refillable tank and converts it into electricity to power the motors. But the Badger will also come with an onboard auxiliary battery pack Nikola says will be big enough to power the pickup on its own.”

It looks like Nikola Trucks are coming and could well be a very Big Competitor to Tesla - Dave 😊

Watch out, Tesla. Nikola is the hot new electric truck stock : https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/09/investin ... index.html

It looks like the plans are starting now with the Nikola Truck Project and Europe could possibly benefit from it - Dave 😉

“Europe has a stake in the latest heavily hyped project. Founded by Trevor Milton, a 38-year-old American college dropout, Nikola is relying heavily on expertise from the old continent. Robert Bosch Gmbh, a German automotive supplier, has helped develop the U.S. company’s electric powertrain, and the first Nikola trucks will be built in a German factory belonging to Italy’s Iveco, a truck maker backed by the billionaire Agnelli family. Bosch and Iveco each own more than 6% of Nikola. CNH Industrial NV, Iveco’s parent, just recorded a $1.5 billion fair value gain on that investment.”

Bloody hell......our countries are certainly going to have masses of wiring here and there. Perhaps they could be mobile battery banks for EVs? oh, and e-bikes.... :idea:
