The Nikola Motor Company is currently working on a conceptual four-wheeler that is much more utilitarian and environmentally friendly with an engine that runs off of electricity and wind power. The truck is designed to utilize high winds and transform the gust into electricity that can be used to power an integrated heavy duty battery. The unit can cover over 1,000-miles in distance off of one solo charge.

Trucks use up a great deal of fossil fuels to operate and often travel at great distances hauling different types of commodities across the globe. The Nikola One model is a wind-powered vehicle that features a futuristic and minimalistic exterior coupled with a powerful 320-kWh battery pack inside that is powered by a wind turbine. This allows the truck to collect air from the outside and transform it into fuel.
