Check out the first hydrogen-electric semi-truck, the Nikola OneThe company says the concept has 1,200 miles of range and twice the horsepower of conventional diesel trucks.
[MUSIC] What has an electric range of 1200 miles and a thousand horsepower? No, it's not the latest Tesla, it's America's first hydrogen powered semi-truck, the Nikola One. Its Nikola One behind me, a manufactured by the Nikola Motor Company. And it promises to be a zero emission trucking game changer. A hydrogen fueled cell charges up a 320 kilowatt per hour battery. And that powered six electric motors. Six wheels. Six motors. This is an all-wheel drive semi truck baby! Nikolas planning an infrastructure or 364 hydrogen station across America and Canada. Now the first one should be coming online 2019 and here's the kicker. Listen up Honda's clarity drivers, not only will he station the available for the Nikolas truck, he will be also available to any and all hydrogen power vehicle. Yes. Now in terms of looks, it's a little Tron-like right? Since there's no diesel engine the entire cab has been pushed forward. You've got a huge panoramic window which should help the drivers see more of what's going on around them. Personally I think it looks pretty cool and I can't wait to see one out on the road. But I'm gonna to have to wait quite a long time. Nikola says that they won't be in production full swing until 2020. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
