Nikola has officially launched the commercial sales of its hydrogen fuel cell electric truck at its manufacturing facility in Coolidge, Arizona. The celebration ceremony was attended by fleet customers, dealers from Nikola’s sales and service network, government officials, prominent Phoenix business and community leaders and the dedicated Nikola team.

So far, Nikola has received 223 non-binding orders for the hydrogen fuel-cell truck from a total of 23 customers, including fleet operators such as J.B. Hunt, AJR Trucking, Biagi Bros, TTSI or BayoTech. “As we head into the fourth quarter, we are focused on delivering our trucks at scale”, said Steve Girsky, Nikola President and Chief Executive Officer.

After the completion of Phase 2 assembly expansion at the Coolidge manufacturing facility with a versatile mixed-model production line capable of manufacturing both hydrogen fuel cell and battery-electric trucks, the facility stands ready to achieve an annual production capacity of approximately 2,400 trucks across three shifts.

Progress is also evident on the fuel cell power module assembly line in Coolidge, scheduled for completion in Q4 of this year, with Bosch supplying these modules.

Nikola has undergone a few rather radical changes this year, such as renaming its European joint venture with Iveco, or losing its CEO in August, as well as hiring a new Chief Engineering Officer just days before.

As a Daimler employee, kudos. I bought some of your stock three months ago. It’s been a ride. So best of luck and let’s build trucks.
