For some outdoor fun off the beaten path, side-by-sides are a great way to access areas and terrain otherwise untouchable by standard production SUVs and trucks. But if you want some extra juice behind the wheel – in this case some serious juice – then the Nikola Motors Zero UTV is what you need.
Make no mistake, this thing boasts some serious power. We’re talking 555 horses and 490 ft-lbs of torque at your disposal making it the world’s more powerful production-ready UTV to date. It’s really what you’d come to expect from a side-by-side that utilizes more battery power than a Tesla P100D that delivers more than 200 miles of range on a full charge. It also comes complete with an anti-lock braking system, stability control, traction control, and torque vectoring – similar to features found in higher-end sports cars. The Zero hits 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and is equipped with 14 inches of ground clearance and 20 inches of front and rear suspension travel as well.
