Futuristic hydrogen-powered semi-truck can go 1,200 miles on one refueling



This sleek new vehicle could be the big rig of the future. 

On Thursday night, the Nikola Motor Company unveiled a hydrogen-powered semi-truck it claims can travel 1,200 miles on a single refueling. 

The Nikola One relies on an electric drivetrain running on lithium batteries, all powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. 

“Oh, that thing is so awesome,” said an emotional Trevor Milton, Nikola’s founder and CEO, as he unveiled the truck in Salt Lake City. “We’ve been waiting so long to show this to the world.”
