  • Sounds like GM knows what they're doing. Sure they're involved with a shady guy, but that's it. They litteraly have nothing to lose if Nickola goes under and can win big time if Nickola succeeds

  • Well technically the truck was zero emissions when it coasted down hill. Absolutely useless, but zero emission!

  • Let me educate you about "Electric Semi's". I have over 20 years in trucking. Electric trucks are not viable at the current time in any capacity other than local delivery. They do not have the power to pull heavy or specialized freight, they wight 2.5 times that of a conventional diesel powered tractor, require batteries to be placed on the trailer as well, and have less than half the freight load capacity due to the weight of the batteries. The Nikola truck IF it ever gets built would be a better choice, but still limited to local work, as there is no H2 refueling infrastructure. Tesla has a similar problem with the semi, and a real world range of about 375 miles. The claim of 500-550 is on flat roads, not undulating interstates. The typical trucks runs 620 miles in 11 hours, far beyond the range of the Tesla. With ZERO charging stations for the Telas semi and Zero H2 refueling stations (also the ungodly danger of handling H2) neither of these vehicles will be inservice in the long haul segment for years to come. But they both could have huge success in the Local and short haul LTL (Less than Truckload) segment of the market. Had to find a silver lining for the end of this! I really hope these technologies will come to fruition one day, but I fear that day is beyond my years, kinda like the singularity.

  • Physics and battery energy density are not in the favor of electric only vehicles as they get larger. Mass is volume equation while batteries are storing energy basically as a surface formula. With better batteries, maybe a 1/2 ton truck that without a load could go 50- 250 miles every other day... (recharging slowly to preserve the batteries and that is why I say 50 miles as that will lead to longer battery life)

Now let’s say they get big which is very possible they might in the next to years and comparing to Tesla’s stock value at 693.42 pre share say in about the next year GM’s stock is worth 500 dollars and only putting in 820 dollars worth of stock at the end u made 10,000 dollars or more
