Just in time for watersports season, Nikola – a company known for its battery-powered cargo trucks – announced that another e-vehicle is joining its line-up.
It’s called Wav, pronounced wave, and it’s a battery-powered jet ski-style watercraft that the company wants to take out of the concept stage and into a lake.
The boat, which looks like it stepped off the set of a Transformers movie, was inspired by the design of sport bikes with “wakeboard” architecture, according to the company.
Few specifications have been released by the Arizona-based car company apart from a few teaser images and a short video.
Pricing has yet to be announced, but potential buyers can reserve a Wav of their own via the source link on the company’s website.
So far, we do know that features include a console-mounted 4K touchscreen display and LED head- and tail lights. There’s also a storage area that stretches from bow to stern.
The electric motor produces instant torque, and all of the electronics are protected by a waterproofing system.
“With WAV, you can feel the rush of power and acceleration in your chest, with the sound of the water and breeze in your ears,” said Jordan Darling, vice president of Nikola Powersports in a press release.

Are there cameras in my car?: Possibly.
The company says WAV is an acronym for Water Adventure Vehicle.
The powertrain comes with waterproof rating that allows it to be submerged in more than 4 feet of water for up to thirty minutes.
The electric jet ski debuted recently in Arizona along with four other Nikola vehicles that the company claims are zero emission products.
Nikola showed a new hydrogen fuel cell truck for the European market, a truck for long-range driving, an autonomous-capable military all-terrain vehicle, and an off-highway vehicle.
