Utah's Nicola Motor Company, a big Tesla rival on the heavyweight front, has introduced a prototype of a new traction truck specifically designed for Europe. The standard version of the truck will also receive an autonomous management system.
Nicola Tre (from "Three" as the company's third model) will be available in several versions with power from 500 to 1000 hp The fuel cell propulsion system that provides the electric motors provides an autonomous range of 500 to 1,200 km.
Because this is intended for the ancient continent, the truck has a compact size and a more limited length of landing than its American counterparts. Europe is also a cabin architecture without a forward-facing cabin.
If everything goes according to the plan, Tre will be put up for sale in 2022 or 2023. The boss of Nicolton Trevor of Milton promises a production truck to get a fifth-generation autopilot. In addition to developing new models, the company is also actively developing a network of hydrogen fuel stations, the number of which in the US and Canada should exceed 700 to 2028.
