The Nikola One, Zero Emissions
The Nikola One is a hybrid-electric Class 8 truck, currently developed by the Nikola Motor Company’s Advanced Research and Development Team. Powered by a turbine and electric hybrid drive train, the N-One will develop 2,000 horsepower. It will also be able to travel 1,200 miles on one full tank. While battery powered semi’s travel for a few hundred miles, they require four to eight hours to recharge fully. This truck, however, only takes 15 minutes. The trucks are currently available for lease for $4,000- $5,000 per month depending on the trucks configuration. The first million miles of fuel under the lease are included with each sale. The company reported more than 7,000 reservations with deposits. In addition to trucks, the company also has started an innitiative to manufacture emission free power plants to save money, and save the environment. These powerplants range from 50KW – 50MW.
