Performance

Performance1
UNBELIEVABLE
ACCELERATION
While diesel engines require high RPM's to reach peak torque, electric motors hit peak torque almost instantly. This enables the Nikola trucks to accelerate up to 2x faster than a stock diesel tractor.
Performance2
SUPERIOR
EFFICIENCY
Better aerodynamics, using energy only when needed with no idling, regenerative braking, and highly efficient electric motors and fuel cells are a few factors that give Nikola the advantage when it comes to fuel economy.
Performance3
AS LIGHT AS
COMPARABLE DIESELS
When pulling at max capacity, every kilogram counts. Being as light as comparable diesels allows Nikola owners to transport more goods on each load.
Safety4
TORQUE
VECTORING
Torque vectoring allows control of each wheel independently through drive-by-wire. Each wheel torque is adjusted to be optimal during cornering, maneuvering, accelerating and braking resulting in better efficiency and stability.

Safety

Safety advanced driver assistance
ADVANCED DRIVER
ASSISTANCE
Nikola trucks come standard with advanced hardware capable of providing active safety and convenience features.
Safety2
STOP
FASTER
With regenerative braking and air disk brakes, Nikola trucks begin braking within 10 milliseconds; hundreds of times faster than advanced air-only disc brakes.
Safety midcab entry two
UNOBSTRUCTED
MID-CAB ENTRY
A standard class 8 truck requires the driver to climb into the vehicle at the front of the cab, the Nikola One mid-cab entry design allows the driver to simply and safely walk straight into the cab to access the cockpit, much like an airplane.
Safety enhanced visability
ENHANCED
VISABILITY
With no diesel engine Nikola was able to move the driver forward and add a panoramic windshield for better overall visibility. Digital camera mirrors provide additional visibility and reduce blind spots. During turning cameras adjust automatically with trailer movement.

FEATURES
