This looks much better than Cyber Truck.   Now teamed with GM who has been working with Honda on fuel cell technology for a while.  Fuel cell option seems problematic for refills.  Range falls short of the 2500 Duramax for towing.  Would be nice if the trailer could be charged off the fuel cell though.

As far as I  know, Nikola still hasn't exhibited a true prototype for either the cool pickup or the semi .

I love the concept.  But, I'd like to see tires moving under stated power before I  put down a deposit .

Rivian has been testing in several locales. 

My deposit is on the Tesla Cybertruck. Only hoping it fits in my garage.

I started to watch the video and just couldn’t finish it. I’m probably wrong but there’s something about these guys that doesn’t seem legit, despite GM’s involvement.

This sounds great BUT the milage range is greatly reduced when towing. I watched a video of someone in a Tesla. Very disappointing. Plus, it's hard enough finding a dump station, finding a quick charge to continue your journey would prove to be difficult.
