    Confession: I had no idea Nikola was in the garbage truck business.

    Well, now I know thanks to news of this order for 2,500 vehicles from Republic Services who, I'm told, are one of the largest waste collection companies in the country. The news buoyed investors pushing the sagging stock up significantly.

    So, here's the rundown on the Nikola Refuse:
    • sits on the Tre platform
    • up to 150 miles (240 km) of range
    • up to 720 kWh battery
    • up to 1,000 HP of power
    • up to 1,200 cans/charge
    The Refuse is said to begin deliveries in 2023, with on-road testing beginning in early 2022.
