Nikola Announces Two New Truck Models: Two and Tre

Nikola recently announced two new hydrogen fuel-cell trucks to compete with Tesla. A 10-wheel conventional for the U.S. called the Nikola Two and a smaller, six-wheeled cabover design for Europe called the Nikola Tre.

Both trucks are available as full electrics or as hybrid fuel-cell electrics, with hydrogen fuel cells along with storage batteries. The company’s original Nikola One is a large conventional sleeper cab.

The new trucks will have up to 1,000 horsepower and 2,000 foot-pounds of torque. The target range is 800 to 1,200 km from a 15- to 20-minute hydrogen refill. Regenerative braking will restrain the truck on hills while charging a 250-kWh battery pack.

Nikola plans on leasing the trucks for 6 years or 1.6 million kilometres. Nikola is also preparing to roll out a network of 700 hydrogen fueling stations by 2028.

The company is expected to start delivery of the Nikola One in 2020. Anheuser-Busch had ordered 800.  A release date for the Two or the Tre was not confirmed but no-deposit reservations are open.

Nikola has also released a line of electric off-roaders and jet-skis.
