Nikola Motor has received a large order from the US beer magnate mostly known for their Budweiser. Nikola will deliver up to 800 fuel cell trucks, which will be integrated into the Anheuser-Busch fleet as of 2020.
Anheuser-Busch is planning to convert their entire long-distance fleet to regeneratively running trucks, and had previously ordered 40 Tesla Semi trucks.
“At Anheuser-Busch we’re continuously searching for ways to improve sustainability across our entire value chain and drive our industry forward,” said Michel Doukeris, CEO of Anheuser-Busch. “The transport industry is one that is ripe for innovative solutions and Nikola is leading the way with hydrogen-electric, zero-emission capabilities.” Trevor Milton, Nikola Motor Company CEO, added: “Hydrogen-electric technology is the future of logistics and we’re proud to be leading the way.”
The partnership with Nikola also helps bring forward the Anheuser-Busch sustainability goals, which aim to reduce CO2 emissions by 25% along the entire value chain by 2025.
