U.S.-based truck manufacturer Nikola has inaugurated its very first refueling station in Southern California. The station has got the HYLA brand. Featuring an advanced modular fueler, the station at 2445 East Guasti Road in Ontario, California, represents the latest phase in Nikola’s commitment to providing hydrogen refueling solutions for Class 8 trucks.
Up to 40 Nikola hydrogeh trucks refueled daily
The Ontario station will be capable of fueling up to 40 Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric Class 8 trucks daily. This station is part of a strategic plan to establish up to 60 hydrogen refueling solutions in the coming years, with nine planned to be in place by the close of Q2 2024.
The HYLA refueling solutions network will offer Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and other Class 8 customers flexible refueling options, including modular and permanent HYLA stations, customer-owned facilities, and partnerships with public truck stops. Part of this network includes the recently announced 10-year agreement with FirstElement Fuel for a hydrogen refueling station in Oakland, California.
