  1. There is the innovative American company with his Future Truck. How again this other American company, which since 2017 wanted to bring a truck with electric drive on the road? Muhahaha …

  2. The trucks of Nikola are built in Ulm and delivered to the USA for a well-known beer brewer, according to the video of the German wave of 16.09.2021 – Why does Nikola do not build in the USA?

    Probably there was no stupid, who wanted to spend money for Nikolas truck production, although American investors are considered risk-to-risk.

    But named Iveco in the back has found at least a well-known beer brewer in the US as truck buyers and now probably also the Hamburg Port Authority AOOr (HPA).
