The war of the electric pickup trucks is upon us.

Tesla competitor Nikola Motors has started taking reservations for its upcoming Badger electric and hydrogen-powered pickup truck.

For $5,000 fee, customers can secure their own powerhouse truck that will eventually be competing against Tesla’s much-hyped Cybertruck.

The news caused Nikola share values to climb seven percent, Business Insider reports. The automaker, which has yet to make a single dollar in revenue, saw a massive surge in its valuation, climbing above $20 billion upon going public earlier this year — even surpassing the market values of established automakers Chrysler and Ford.

The Badger has some striking differences with Tesla’s Cybertruck: it extends the battery capacity of a lithium battery with a hydrogen fuel cell generator, expanding its range to an advertised 600 miles — that is, if you live near one of the few hydrogen refueling stations.
