Nikola is expected to deliver 15 Nikola Tre fuel cell trucks to California-based Biagi Bros. by the end of Q4, 2023. According to the manufacturer, the FCEV trucks are expected to put in over 100,000 miles per year, to support the round-the-clock operations. Nikola has recently announced a major European order by German operator GP Joule.
Besides, Nikola fuel cell trucks received a California Air Resources Board (CARB) Zero-Emission Powertrain Executive Order that is a requirement for the Nikola Tre FCEV to be eligible for CARB’s Hybrid and Zero Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) program. In fact, upon final HVIP approval, purchasers of the Nikola Tre FCEV in 2023 may be able to qualify for California’s state-based incentive.

“These initial 15 Nikola Tre FCEVs are part of Biagi Bros. commitment to transition their fleet to zero-emissions,” said Michael Lohscheller, Nikola’s President and CEO. “In addition, the trucks will be fueled at the previously announced hydrogen station in Ontario, Calif.”
“Biagi Bros. has been successfully testing Nikola’s Class 8 FCEV beginning in January of 2022,” added Andrea Biagi, President of Biagi Bros. “After logging more than 12,000 miles, we are extremely pleased with the performance and specification of the trucks, and we are ready to move forward to officially build our zero-emission fleet later this year.”
