Nikola Motors founder Trevor Milton has sweetened the pot upfront of Nikola opening pre-orders for the Badger electrical pickup truck. Milton tweeted info on three deposit packages at three worth ranges, every considered one of them guaranteeing entry into a raffle to win a Badger.
A $250 deposit will get two tickets into the raffle. Also, $250 can be knocked off the ultimate worth of the chosen Badger, and you will get one ticket to the Nikola World 2020 occasion, which remains to be ready on a new date.
The $1,000 pre-order package deal doubles the raffle ticket rely to 4, quadruples the low cost to $1,000 off the Badger’s worth, and earns two tickets to Nikola World.
The prime package deal requires a $5,000 deposit, which rewards depositors with 25 raffle tickets, a $2,500 low cost off MSRP, and two VIP tickets to Nikola World with a meet-and-greet element, though it isn’t clear who company will get to schmooze with.

The tweet calls the truck Nikola’s freely giving an “Executive truck sequence − Founder.” We’ve reached out to Nikola to seek out out what which means, whether or not there can be a run of Founder’s Series vehicles, and the way the successful truck can be optioned. We’ll replace the publish if we get a response.
Badger pre-orders open on June 29, and it appears the nearer we get to the thought of a actual Nikola product within the U.S., the extra flack Nikola faces. If reportage in Bloomberg and Forbes about Milton’s historical past is true, the critics will not faze the tech firm’s founder, whose message to the disbelievers is, “Come again in 12 months and watch the way it’s completed. I’m an innovator, I’ll let the haters hate. I’m right here to create, I’m not right here to destroy.”
