Even better are the truck’s specs. Nikola says it will go an estimated 600 miles on a single charge. On tap is 980 lb.-ft. of torque and 906 horsepower. According to Nikola, the Badger is supposed to be highly practical for tough everyday work, especially when it comes to continuous towing. A 15-kilowatt power outlet will work for plugging in tools, compressors, lights, or whatever else is needed. It can even take on up to 40 percent inclines without trouble. If that’s not cool enough, the company plans to offer hydrogen fuel-cell versions as well.
