Nikola Powersports Company has acquired Free Form Factory Inc., to expand its reach to include watercraft and UTVs.
Based in Sacramento, California, Free Form Factory designed electric watercraft and proprietary manufacturing technology. Jordan Darling, founder and CEO of Free Form Factory, will be transitioning to vice president of Nikola Powersports and will be responsible for both the watercraft and UTV lineup, the company says.
“By April 2018, Nikola will have a production intent sit down personal watercraft (PWC) that we believe will outperform the top internal combustion versions on the water and provide up to a five-hour ride time with zero emissions and far less noise,” says Trevor Milton, Nikola Motors CEO.
“Nikola Powersport customers can spend the entire day at the lake without polluting the water, while having the ultimate fun. By using the Nikola Zero UTV technology, we have shaved years off the development program for this new PWC and will allow it to fast charge in as little as 30 minutes,” adds Milton.
