This week brings an announcement by Nikola Motor Company that the 100% electric Badger pickup truck will make its first appearance later this year. The Badger will join what is becoming a crowded field of high-end zero-emission pickups including:
- Cybertruck by Tesla
- Hummer by General Motors
- R1T by Rivian
Nikola’s fully electric pickup, which is expected to have a range of 300 miles, will be equipped for both camping and job sites with features such as a 15-kilowatt power outlet for tools, lights and compressors. Nikola is also developing a fully electric heavy duty truck with an expected range of 800 miles.
