Ecological mobility does not develop only between ordinary cars, but also in the sphere of trucks. After Tesla Semi, the Norwegian company Nikola Tre reported a hydrogen truck.
Nikola Motor Company is a Norwegian company that has been working longer on hydrogen trucks. After Nikola One and Nikola Two comes the third version.

It offers performance of 500 to 1,000 horsepower and a configuration of 6 x 4 or 6 x 2. The configuration will also depend on the mileage of the truck, which should be 500 to 1,200 kilometers per tank. The advantage of hydrogen is just a quick refueling that would take up to 20 minutes for this car.
Not bad when we compare this time with the volume of conventional electric cars. At the same time, truck drivers are required to make regular stops, so waiting for the car to refuel for them will not waste time. From the technical point of view, the truck must have a level 5 autonomy. On the inside, we also find a 21-inch touch screen to control most automotive systems.

Nikola Motor Company plans to sell the vehicle in Europe with a rental purchase lease. The truck should also be available in Asia and Australia. The price has not been announced so far, but you will have service and the opportunity to change your vehicle every seven years. If you are interested in the vehicle, you can reserve 1 to 10 pieces of Nikola Tre for free on the official website.
As for the terms, the Nikola Tre must be tested in 2020 in Norway. Meanwhile, the Nikola Motor Company plans to expand its network of hydrogen stations across Europe between 2022 and 2030.
The official premiere of the vehicle, also live, will be on April 16, 2019, during the Nikola World show in Phoenix, Arizona.
