Pretty sure that's the same company that was touting an electric semi tractor that has yet to happen either....

Is it also first 3000 pound side x side?

Still a cad model and no mention of the battery size

Also curious what inverters they plan to use.

Plenty of electric side x sides already out there.

There is no fucking way they have an electric motor putting out 4900 ft/lbs torque. The Tesla Model S puts out a dyno tested and verified 864 ft/lbs. The Alta Redshift puts out 120 ft/lbs (which is A LOT for a motorcycle). Modern 4 stroke 450s put out 35ish ft/lbs torque.

All hype and some highly dubious claims.

Bro, it's just geared down low with a sweet top speed of 7 mph!

If you're not mixing gas, you're not haulin ass.

Given that 1HP=.7457KW, this thing at full power should draw 413.863KW....should run for about 15 minutes. I call BS

That's more torque than a fucking train is putting out lol

It sits on 2.5 ton Rockwells with an atlas tcase... nope would still tear that up.

had a guy post on facebook explaining that torque. i don't know how accurate it is but i think this explains it, idunno. just cut/paste

"Nikola Powersports the electric motors have 1,222 ft. lbs each after the gear reduction at the wheel hub. There are (4) of those totaling 4,900 ft. lbs . There is one motor for each wheel. With electric motors, you get all the torque instantly. With a single gear reduction, torque is multiplied to come to that number. It will register that on a dyno. The torque is split up between four motors and four gearboxes so you can manage the torque well without affecting your driveshafts. That is one of the many advantages of electric vehicles over gasoline versions. I hope that helps clarify!"

I tried to make sense of the power output of the battery to see if the cells could discharge to supply 555 hp and hit a road block immediately

On the website i find, quote:

Q: What kind of cells are in the battery packs?
A: The Nikola Zero™ battery pack has 21,700 lithium ion cells.

21,700 cells !!!!!!

The model s has 7,104 cells for 85kwh, what the hell kind of configuration are these people running?

Beyond that, assuming the tesla battery and nikola have a similar specific energy, the nikola battery will weigh 1764 lbs. Almost as much as a car!! This thing will need trophy truck sized tubing. And the suspension, if this thing manages to get any air watch out..


More humor,

Q: How much does the battery pack weigh?
A: The weight of the battery pack will depend on the final size of the production model battery pack. The pack ranges from 500 pounds to 1,500 pounds depending on which size you choose.

500lb for 75kWh ??? Thats 330.7 Wh/kg. And yet they need 21,700 cells for 125 kWh?

Meg picked up a gas-powered rubber-dork the other day. after a few sessions, she's admitted that electric is the only way to go

Yes, the intent was to provide a vehicle that might actually be capable of towing the side x side

OK....the Tesla Model S is available with either a 75 or 100 KWH battery (from Tesla's own specs). I still say the math doesn't work for the claims made for this SXS....
