Tearassing through the woods on a UTV, carbon emissions and cacophony in tow, used to be a pretty terrible thing for the health of said woods.

No longer.

From the company behind the world's first all-electric semi comes a potent utility vehicle called the Zero. Nikola’s just-released UTV is churning out 520 ponies and 476 lb-ft of torque. Mighty forceful, considering a handsome Porsche 911 GT3 is working with 500 HP and 339 lb-ft of torque.

If that didn’t sound fun enough, there's also the fact that the Zero can fly 0-60 in three seconds, mostly due to its featherweight of just 1,900 pounds.

But what sets it apart is the Tesla-size 72-kwh lithium-ion battery pack feeding four electrical motors, good for 100-200 miles per charge.

One helluva good time, it'll set a fella back $37,500. For which you’ll be sitting atop a go-anywhere, waterproof, emissions-free, off-roading rumpus maker.
