Electric cars are becoming more and more popular. The announcement of Cybertruck caused an unusual stir both among experts and future buyers who want to take a place in the queue for a futuristic pickup truck. Tesla and its electric Semi truck were challenged by the automaker Nikola, who had previously produced several hydrogen-powered trucks.

The new Nikola Tre was created in collaboration with CNH Industrial Iveco, which invested $ 250 million in its development. By and large, the car is a modified version of the serial Iveco S-Way. The changes affected the chassis, powertrain and wagon compartment.

Nikola Tre can travel 400 kilometers from a full charge of a 720 kWh battery. The power of the truck is 644 horsepower, and the torque is an impressive 978 N · m.

All important information is available on the large touch screen to the right of the driver. It focuses on climate control, adjustment of mirrors and suspension height, 360-degree camera system, navigation, audio system, as well as car diagnostics.

On the dashboard there is another display that displays important information for the driver: speed, driving mode and more.

The electric Nikola Tre will go on sale as early as 2021. The company also announced that a similar hydrogen-powered car will be released in 2023.
