Different.
They specialize in fuel cells.
Hydrogen is one.
Yes they also have electric.
But the use of those in their truck division is the key issue. Think of how many medium size and small delivery trucks you see every day.

Key item is a pickup truck with either hydrogen or electric as the power source, that will be at the demo shows this fall.
Custom woodcraft and specialty transport

No, that company is called Rivian. Nikola is in Phoenix.

Why aren't any of these companies called Faraday?

Good question, considering how one method of capturing energy from regenerative braking is via capacitance.
