While Tesla currently leads the EV segment, no one is likely to take their Model S or Model X off-roading. That’s where the Nikola Zero electric UTV comes in. It has room for four passengers and an insane 555 horsepower that’s enough power to tackle even the toughest terrain — and according to electrek, it is surprisingly comfortable.
The Nikola Zero is an electric UTV that has some impressive specs. It not only has more horsepower than most sports cars, but it also has an impressive 4,900 lb-ft. of torque. Four independent electric motors power the UTV. The Nikola Zero can reach 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds and has a driving range up to 200 miles. Its battery pack also beats the current Tesla Model S P100D with its 125 kWh of energy capacity.
32-inch tires and beadlock wheels are ready to jump over any rocks in your way, while its electric powertrain is completely waterproof, just in case you decide to cross a river.
Inside there’s not only room for four passengers, but a 10-inch infotainment screen that looks like it came straight out of a Model S. Pricing for the Nikola Zero starts at $35,000 and there will be three different battery options to choose from: 75kWh, 100kWh and 125kWh.
Production is expected to start in 2018 and you can reserve one now for only $750.
