Nikola Motor launches its all-electric UTV with up to 150 miles of range Nikola Motor, a Utah-based EV startup, best known for their hydrogen fuel cell electric truck, launched their all-electric UTV with up to 150 miles of range this week. Last month, I had the opportunity to be among the first people to experience their prototype for the new off-road electric vehicle and I came out of the experience fairly impressed.

You can read my report here: ‘We tested an insane electric UTV with more energy capacity than even the most powerful Tesla’

But this week, Nikola Motor, or more specifically its sports division ‘Nikola Powersports’, officially launched the Nikola Zero UTV, which has been renamed ‘NZT’.

The prototype that we tested didn’t have any body panels, but the company has now released a bunch of new images showing off the final design. We could only share a few pictures of our experience with the vehicle in the desert in Utah and couldn’t do justice to the ability of the vehicle to conquer the impressive terrain in the Utah desert. With the launch this week, Nikola released a cinematic video filmed at the same location that should give you a little better idea of the capabilities of the electric UTV.

The company has also worked out the lineup of NZT variants that will be offered: “Nikola has expanded the NZT lineup to include four models; NZT 440, NZT 352, NZT 280 and NZT 198. The numbers represent the kW output of the UTV, with the NZT 198 starting at only $28,900 and coming in at 2,300 lbs.” The different versions are based on the number of motors and the capacity of the battery: 75kWh, 100kWh and 125kWh. We tested the top-of-the-line version with 4 motors and the highest capacity battery pack, which was actually 107 kWh for the prototype.

Last month, Trevor Milton, founder and CEO of Nikola Motor Company, told us that the fully equipped NZT will cost closer to $55,000. He commented on the launch yesterday: “With 0-60 mph in the three-second range, the Nikola NZT is the most powerful production UTV ever built. It outperforms many high-end sports cars and comes with features like electric power steering, 33” tires, 20” of wheel travel, anti-lock brakes, stability control, anti-rollover, traction control and torque vectoring. Once you drive one, you will sell every gas-powered UTV you have and join team Nikola.”

Nikola was already taking reservations since announcing the vehicle last year, but the company now says that they are reimbursing all the deposits and taking reservations again but without any required deposit. They expect to start production “in the fourth quarter of 2018 with deliveries to dealerships for Spring 2019 sales.”

      I have been looking to outfit my new Polaris xp 1000 but have been finding prices all over the range for the same item. So I thought it would be good idea if we could all share here where you are finding the best prices and service rzr xp1000 accessories whether it be a local motorsport store or online.

      Thanks,

      hello everyone, i just joined this forum to try my luck, few days ago i bought an old (dont know exactly), 2011/14 hi sun 500cc ""carburated"",  was not running at the time, but i fell was a good deal and decided it to bring it home to play with it, this is the issue, i bought and installed a new carb, and pump, i repositioned the battery location and upgraded to a "car batt", reconnected the fuel lines and started it, but it only runs with the choke ON, i checked the bowl, it does have fuel,but for some reason wont inject it to run, i came across a video that say that ""the body small tank had to be connected for the cart to run" (was deleted when bought), sure enough i got it to run sporadically , but the so called ""small body tank'' often runs out of fuel and wont refill itself , i had to couple times do it manually, so how does that small tank works ?..what does it do?..and why if  bypass it , the cart wont start?....any help?..thanks so much!!!

      I’m getting a 700-7 every startup. I’m having to change the plug every 100 miles on 93 octane gas. I got a lower numbered plug that is supposed to burn hotter. I’m wondering why that comes up every time I start it and if it’s related? I included a picture of the code or whatever it is. I haven’t seen the code in the owners manual or the hisun shop manual I have.

      I'm working on a Coleman UTV 400 that has a rough idle, owner has had it for about a year. When I say it has a rough idle, it doesn't have the continuous smooth running sound. At times you can hear it kinda skip, sputter, or like the RPM has fallen (RPM stay constant according to the gauge) It's not as bad as it was after I replaced the fuel filter and fuel injector (both are Chiki) not sure if that is a quality brand at this point. Checked the spark plug, it was a little foul, but not too bad. (Since the engine is still idling bad I'm going to replace that) Cleaned the throttle body making sure the carbon and soot has been removed, and the air-filter has been cleaned. New fuel is being used so it's not old or been standing. They did tell me that they were using non-ethanol fuel, not sure if that would be causing the issue. Next two things I can think of that maybe the issue is the O2 sensor or the valves need adjusting.
      Thoughts and suggestions? Thanks in advance.
