Nikola Motors, Bosch jointly develop electric powertrain for heavy truck
With the Nikola Two, the first electric long-distance truck is taking shape. US manufacturer Nikola Motors now revealed what the powertrain will look like. Supplier of the hardware and software is Bosch.

When it comes to electromobility, the public usually only has passenger cars in mind. Experts however agree that the commercial vehicle sector is particularly suitable for electrification. This applies in particular to those market segments where electric trucks operate on short distances and have a well-planned daily schedule; examples for such application scenarios are short-haul distribution, supermarket deliveries or parcel delivery. Some movement in the market can already be observed here. For example, Mitsubishi FUSO recently started series production of its Canter light truck, while Deutsche Post DHL, as a market outsider, operates a production facility for electric delivery vehicles. A year ago, Daimler also unveiled a short-distance electric-powered truck that could go into series production at relatively short notice.
