Nikola has just revealed its Badger electric pickup truck concept. With an estimated total range of 600 miles (a blended figure that includes the use of hydrogen) or 300 miles on battery alone, the Badger seems impressive. It zips from 0 to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. Reservations for the truck will open sometime in 2020 following its debut this September. No pricing information is available at this point in time.
The Badger, though just a concept for now, aims to compete with the likes of the Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T, Hummer electric pickup truck, Ford F-150 electric truck and more in the ever-growing segment of electric trucks.
Nikola is mostly known for its zero-emission semi-trucks, including the stylish Tre, but now the automaker is venturing into the field of pickup trucks with the Badger. It seems the truck will be offered in two forms, with one being a battery-only version and the other offering both a battery and a hydrogen fuel cell setup.
