Our technology agnostic solution to achieve clean energy includes both the truck and the energy source – a complete solution. Delivering a complete solution is hard but it is the only way to transition to clean energy quickly and economically with the lowest risk to end users.
At Nikola, we take a technology-agnostic approach to produce hydrogen. Our goal is to develop the lowest carbon-intensive footprint and achieve a competitive cost position when compared to diesel. With our total cost of ownership (TCO) model we will work with fleet partners to drive down the cost of hydrogen together.
Transitioning to full-scale hydrogen infrastructure is possible but it will take planning and time. To support the transition to permanent infrastructure, Nikola will provide hydrogen to customers through mobile hydrogen dispensing operations to ensure a reliable source of hydrogen for demos and early customer orders. The mobile operations that we establish now will later be used as a back up to our permanent infrastructure or for service support in the field.
Broad hydrogen fueling infrastructure does not currently exist for the heavy-duty trucking industry. Nikola is working to solve one of the biggest challenges by partnering with established energy providers. Together we plan to develop conveniently available hydrogen fueling stations to accelerate the transition to hydrogen powered zero-emissions vehicles. Through our bundled lease, we plan to deliver complete solutions to our trucking partners to help manage their risk, develop a lower carbon future more efficiently, and grow together in the new hydrogen economy.
Electricity for battery-powered vehicles is available today. However, the ability to charge large batteries for commercial trucks still faces several challenges. Grid capacity, optimal recharging times, and infrastructure for effective operations are examples of complexities that remain. Our solution focuses on consulting you throughout the process and supporting the transition to permanent charging infrastructure with our mobile charging solutions.
Nikola will provide safe, reliable, and robust electric vehicle charging solutions. Our experienced consultants can help you plan your EV charger selection and installation from start to finish. Electric vehicle consulting encompasses a wide array of tasks since every EV infrastructure project is unique. There are many decisions to be made when you choose to install EV chargers and management software if desired. We’re here to help make the process smooth and efficient.
Nikola’s Mobile Charging Trailer (MCT) can help speed up your access to EV operations. While others are waiting for permits and the development of recharging infrastructure, our simple-to-implement MCT can have you on the road to zero-emissions lightning fast. Thus, allowing you to focus on how you want to operate and grow your EV fleet before you incur a significant capital expense. Knowing how you want to operate your EVs will help you smoothly transition to a permanent recharging infrastructure plan.
Electric vehicle charging infrastructure is part of the Tre BEV ecosystem. Nikola will guide you through this process and offer a comprehensive solution to support your transition to zero-emissions. Our charging ecosystem will include fixed DC fast charging infrastructure, coordinating with power utility companies, smart charging software, networking, permitting requirements, and estimated project timelines.
The challenge with transitioning to clean energy at a large scale is about connecting supply with demand in the right location and with the right customers. Nikola has taken on this challenge to provide high-quality zero-emission trucks with access to the refueling source at a cost that is competitive to diesel. To achieve this clean energy state where both sides win, Nikola has developed an innovative, full-service lease program that covers the truck, the fuel, and the service.
