Yeah the second video reminded me of the Tesla for semi trucks. Great vision

I have been following this company for a while.

What impresses me most is their agility. Initially they were proposing a turbine powered generator that ran on natural gas. Obviously today it's a hydrogen fuel cell.

The good news with this is that they claim that they will be constructing/installing the infrastructure required to make hydrogen available nationwide, thus allowing their Nikola One to travel coast to coast, border to border.

That's good news because it will hopefully also mean better availability to fuel for some of the other vehicles that have hydrogen cells, and some of the proposed EREV's.

The exact feature set of the truck is still somewhat mysterious, but there have been clues. It's expected to have a range of between 200 to 300 miles, so it'll be focused more on short hops than across-country hauls. And it's no surprise that Elon Musk likes the idea of autonomous trucks, so it's reasonable to see a more truck-oriented take on Autopilot that might include platooning when there's a multi-truck convoy.

Hard to say if this will come to light at an appropriate time to be called a leader. Tesla has a hard enough time producing cars let alone big rigs in a timely fashion
