THE RISE OF TREVOR MILTON AND THE COLLAPSE OF NIKOLA TRUCKS



ORIGINAL POST

Milton promised to disrupt the EV space with his too-good-to-be-true hydrogen-powered semis. But federal prosecutors say he lied to investors and the media, all to hype his company that’s never produced a single operational truck
 

On the first day of December, 2016, dressed in a button-down shirt and a pair of chinos, Trevor Milton strode across the stage at a Salt Lake City convention hall. Behind him, completely obscured by a huge sheet of white, silky fabric, sat an enormous hydrogen-powered semi truck. As his presentation drew to close, Milton addressed his critics: “For every doubter out there that said there’s no way this is true, how can that be possible? We’ve done it. It’s my pleasure to actually let you guys enjoy the night. See the truck. Know it’s real.”
