Nikola Motors announced the upcoming launch of its new electric pick-up , Nikola Badger . This was announced through his Twitter account, Trevor Milton , CEO and founder of the American company. Milton said that the Nikola Badger can be reserved from June 29 and will have two variants, one with a battery system and the other with a hydrogen battery.
The CEO of Nikola also made an invitation to fans of the firm not to miss Nikola World 2020 , an event where that same day he will present the promising Nikola Badger live. It should be noted that the zero-emission pick-up promises about 966 km of autonomy and up to 482 km only with the 8 kg hydrogen tank, while the fuel cell provides up to 120 kW.
The electric battery version is expected to grant 485 km autonomy thanks to its 160 kWh capacity. Nikola Badger is positioned as a strong rival for the Tesla Cybertruck , in addition to a strong contender also for the Rivian R1T , which promise 805 km and 643 km of autonomy, respectively. Speaking of the performance of the Nikola Badger, the pickup’s electric powertrain will send its 919 hp and 1,329 Nm of torque to all four wheels, and will complete 0 to 96 km / h in 2.9 seconds, according to Motorpasión portal information .
