Bloomberg recently wrote that the Nikola One did not drive when it was first presented back in 2016. Trevor Milton, Nikola Motor Company's CEO, says it was a working prototype. Besides that, the company has already proven its trucks work, as the video above shows. Anyway, Nikola must have felt the pressure to show it is for real and confirmed two crucial events. It will break ground for its factory on July 23 and will host the Nikola World 2020 from December 3 to December 4.
The first event will take place in Coolidge, Arizona, and Milton announced it on Twitter. According to the executive, the plan is to manufacture 35,000 semi-trucks there. He also mentions "thousands of jobs," but not when the company intends to have the factory ready.
