GM Will Manufacture Badger Pickup Truck For Nikola

General Motors will also supply fuel cells and Ultium batteries for Nikola.

The Nikola Badger already has a manufacturing partner. It will not be FCA, as we previously expected. Not an independent manufacturing supplier, such as Magna Steyr. The company in charge of producing the electric pickup truck will be General Motors. Or GM, if you prefer.

The agreement between the companies goes beyond the Badger manufacturing. The Badger will use GM’s Ultium batteries. More than that, the Nikola One, Two, and Tre trucks will have GM’s Hydrotec fuel cell technology all over the world except in Europe. Nikola does not speak about the reasons why, but it probably has another deal in place there for the Tre fuel cells.
