    Thanks to Omaze for sponsoring today's episode! You could win a 2020 Audi RS Q8 and $20,000 cash through Omaze! ENTER: bit.ly/33B0uDu
    GM shocked the industry when they partnered with EV startup Nikola to make an electric truck. But nobody expected the controversy that would follow. Is GM making a huge mistake? Is Nikola a scam company? Will the Badger be a total fail? Nolan does a deep dive on allegations of fraud, scandalous lawsuits, and all the controversy surrounding the deal.

General Public: WHAAAAT?! How did GM get into this mess? Car People: Yawn. Another day at GM the last 40 years. I'm a GM guy but won't buy anything post 2000. I'm done with dealing with morons that never learn.

It just goes to show you that GM didn't even bother to take a closer look at Nikola's statements and patents. They just haphazardly picked an EV company then dumped money on them. GM is a shit brand anyways.

How did GM not know the Nicola truck was a fake pusher not the lie nimrod told to the FCC and public who spent billions on stock. I think GM is still tied to Nicola because of their silence, the hope they can still squeeze 2 billion out of Nicola and their desperation to look like Tesla and not the EV denier they are.They tried to kill the EV by recalling all the leased EV1s and crushed them all instead of selling them to the lessors who asked to buy them.GM should force a better deal and name change, I can’t wait to see the first real production truck in 2027. It will be cutting edge with a dance pole in the sleeper and it will be called the SEX truck or Merry Barra.

Because GM did not pay the money they owed to the Government during the bail outs. Nikola and Tesla are not our friends. The Federal Government in the US at least are not our friends. They are businesses. So called green shit with a lot of people pushing for it live in a lot of gray buildings. So don't talk to me about the environment and green until every human being is willing to bulldoze all the gray in our world. Somehow I don't think AOC will give up her cushy apartment to live in a mud hut or wikiup. How dare someone ask her to. She is a Representative for god's sake and she earned it somehow. The Privileged bitch has never had to hunt for food and never spent more than a days hike outside of her own surroundings with all the restaurants and so on. She is kind of cute and I will give her that but the minute she opens her mouth then she loses that.

Patents. That company may have patents in either a necessary component in the trucks, or a patent in the process that makes it cheaper to make them. The fact they didn't have it working is probably because GM hadn't given them the power pack yet. It is true that he lied about some things, but I would consider what you did as more toxic. Mocking someone for trying to start a new technology. Shame on you. It is like you don't want the future to get here. He will be punished for lying and breaking contract, but your attitude is seriously harmful and not called for.

This video shows why wheel house is making videos and not in business to make cars. I see a ton of advantages sticking with the deal, screw image. In today’s world it means nothing. Lies circulate so fast in the cancel culture world, reputation doesn’t matter because if the left don’t like you they will try to force you to apologize and that’s what cancels you. If you just ignore it and keep moving on. The left will find someone else to bully. Now as for Trevor, I totally get why he did what he did. But he should have tamed down the image and nutted up and made the trucks. I think the sex scandal is fake and a way for him to use the company to pay off his cousin that is his little nest egg if everything tanks. Meanwhile he needs to stick with the company and make the trucks and kill it. And in two years, be like what what haters. SMD! That’s how door to door salesman do it

The very name of the company is literally an attempted piss take on the very people who are about to crush them into oblivion. Don't be surprised if the company, (Nikola) itself was actually the brainchild of someone at GM. GM if my memory is correct, attempted to prevent Tesla selling their cars in several states. (Technically the dealership networks, however it was revealed that every dealership was already contracted to only sell cars made by existing car manufacturers.)
