The truck will be unveiled on Dec. 2

"Our technology is 10-15 years ahead of any other [truck maker] in fuel efficiencies, MPG and emissions," Milton said in a statement. "We are the only [truck maker] 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."

Along with the Nikola One semi-trailer, the company also revealed plans to release a 520HP 4x4 utility vehicle (UTV) that will boast more than 480 foot pounds of torque with a 125-mile range. "You only use what [horsepower] you need, but when you need it, it comes in handy for safety and performance," the spokesperson said.

The UTV, dubbed "Nikola Zero," is a 100% electric-powered, zero-emission, four-passenger, side-by-side that has 20 inches  of suspension clearance on all four wheels and 14.5 inches of overall ground clearance.

The Nikola Zero will retail for $42,000. The first 5,000 vehicle reservations will get a $5,000 discount on the suggested retail price, the company said.
