GM and Nikola’s deal didn’t go through on time, leaving the Badger’s future uncertain

The past few weeks have been a wild ride for anyone involved with hydrogen vehicle startup Nikola. That ride doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon as one of the company‘s most talked about deals faces an uncertain future.

Back in early September, Nikola and GM announced that they were bartering a deal that would see GM build the hydrogen-powered truck company‘s first consumer vehicle, the Badger pickup truck. What’s more, it was reported the Badger wouldn’t even use any of the in-house developed tech that Nikola has supposedly been working on for the past six years.

Following that announcement, the company that was only supposed to ever produce water vapor, unraveled to reveal a far more concerning reality. The jury is still out on a lot of the accusations leveled at Nikola, but the most notable thing that has happened, is its outspoken former CEO, Trevor Milton, left the company in response.
