Electric truck manufacturer Nikola is about to broaden dealer network in the US. The company will add five independent dealers covering key territories, resulting in 51 additional dealership locations in 9 States within the US.
All this is part of a nationwide plan for Nikola’s Class 8 truck sales and service coverage. In partnership with IVECO, the US company introduced its heavy-duty battery-electric trucks in Turin, at the end of 2019, also announcing very interesting plans for fuel-cell electric vehicles to be introduced in the following years.

The additional 51 locations will allow customers to better find Nikola products in Texas, Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Florida, Delaware, Virginia and Maryland.

The Nikola dealer network expansion includes HOLT Truck Centers (Texas), Empire Truck & Trailer (Arizona and California), Wagner Equipment Co. (Colorado, New Mexico), Ring Power (Florida) and Carter Machinery (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia).
