One of my big predictions, and tipping points for moving away from combustion engines, is for personal electric vehicles to hit the 1000+kms on one charge. This is what I think will be the game changer in and will mark the end of active selling of combustion engine vehicles.Last weekend a group of 4 friends decided to drive to a wedding in Scotland in a Tesla.\u00a0It was 442 miles (or 712 kms) along mostly A-roads and motorways.They stopped twice to charge for 50 minutes each time. Not ideal but they had almost no complaints.Now we have a company in the United States called ‘Nikola’ (oh, the competition) that hired\u00a0Steve Jennes, the former Chief Designer of Isuzu\u2019s commercial truck division, that has created\u00a0the ‘Nikola One’. And, it has received over two billion dollars in early pre-orders and is\u00a0one of the most advanced electric trucks on the market.It’s a mix of technologies with a 320 kw battery pack augmented by a\u00a0long-range vehicle with a methane range extender.\u00a0That means it gets\u00a0up to 1,200 miles – a whopping 1932kms – on a full charge (with the range extender).Our technology is 10-15 years ahead of any other OEM in fuel efficiencies, MPG and emissions. We are the only OEM to have a near zero emission truck and still outperform diesel trucks running at 80,000 pounds. To have over 7,000 reservations totaling more than 2.3 billion dollars, with five months remaining until our unveiling ceremony, is unprecedented.Nikola Motors CEO Trevor Milton.The truck has the following stats:6X6 100% Electric driveZero idleMany times cleaner than diesel engines1\/2 the fuel cost per mile compared to diesel3,700 FT.
