Nikola managed to produce 43 fuel cell trucks and wholesale 40 of them within a “productive” first quarter of the current year. At the same time, the Arizona-based manufacturer is working on the revised (or ‘2.0’) version of the battery electric vehicles, whose production and sales were stopped by several issues in the last period. No further details were released, though.

“We are on track for a successful 2024 by continuing the momentum set in 2023,” said Nikola CEO Steve Girsky. “It’s about more than just setting goals. It’s about following through on our commitments. This includes not only the production and sale of our hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks but also the start of returns for our battery-electric trucks to customers.”

“We anticipate further sales growth in future quarters as our HYLA hydrogen fueling solutions come online. This includes our recently celebrated first modular refueling station in Ontario, Calif., as well as our first Canadian refueling station in Edmonton, Alberta,” continued Girsky. “It’s rewarding for our team to see us out on the field, leading the effort for the decarbonization of the industry.”
