Via the HYLA brand, Nikola has officially launched its hydrogen fuel cell truck with a dedicated ceremony in Coolidge, Arizona, where the manufacturer has its HQs. Nikola’s hydrogen fuel cell electric truck features a range of up to 500 miles and an estimated fueling time as low as 20 minutes.

Nikola and its dealers have received 223 non-binding orders for its hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks from 23 customers. Notable fleet operators such as J.B. Hunt, AJR Trucking, Biagi Bros. and TTSI, are among the growing list of customers committing to the future of sustainable trucking. It’s quite useful to remind that since the end of the joint venture with Iveco, Nikola’s truck business now focuses only on the North American market.
