GTF out of here. Take a class at your local YMCA. Ranting your BS like a child. Which I'm sure you've always been. The perfect storm killed the highly leveraged fackers. Nobody saw this coming. And we have suffered drastically as a result. Your rants are the stuff kindergartens are made of. So get lost.
Exactly Beta. And how many tractors hauling big loads in our country alone? Millions I'm sure. One very large market for potential NG sales. And of course we should be burning the stuff to propel our cars. After all we're up to our eyeballs in NG in America. But NO, our the Gov. wants electric.
Nikola One, a streamlined electric semi truck that uses an onboard turbine engine to produce its own energy. This setup offers some very impressive figures: a maximum range of 1,200 miles per tank, 2,000 hp, more than double the torque of an average diesel truck (3,700 lb-ft or 2,730 Nm), 30 seconds 0-60 acceleration under load and a top speed uphill of 65 mph (105 km/h).
As the picture demonstrates, the Nikola One owes much of these performance figures to its aerodynamic design. If that windshield doesn't prove to be distorting the driver's vision like the one on the Tesla Model X does, then it'll be a thing of beauty. The idea of streamlined trucks isn't new, and yet none has managed to look anything like the Nikola Zero so far.
The company promises huge improvements over a regular diesel truck in both performances and profitability. The turbine that acts as a generator runs on CNG which NMC extracts,liquefies, and sells all by itself. In fact, it's offering 1,000,000 miles worth of free fuel for the first 5,000 owners, so if that's what was holding you back, jump on it. The deposit for a Nikola One is just $1,500, but the truck will eventually cost $375,000 when it's ready. Or should we say "if" it's ever ready? If it ends up looking like this and is half as good as NMC wants us to believe, then we sure hope it'll roll on our roads one day.
