The hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicle for longer or continuous metro-regional applications
Safely stores hydrogen to power the vehicle.
Fuel Cell Stack
Converts hydrogen into electric power by combining it with oxygen.
Supplements hydrogen power from the fuel stack for acceleration and captures energy through regenerative braking.
Utilizes electric energy from the fuel cell stack and battery to generate motion.
Fuel up on opportunity. Our simplified, full-service lease program lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO) and keeps lease rates fixed, regardless of fluctuating fuel prices. One monthly payment covers the truck, the hydrogen fuel and the maintenance to achieve a competitive TCO.
What do you want to know about FCEVS?
We currently offer lease and direct purchase options and are happy to discuss how we can support your financing needs.
Incentives are currently available in California and New York for HD trucks. With the current administration, we are hopeful that Federal incentives will be available and additional states adopt programs similar to CA and NY.
Our Coolidge, AZ facility will be the primary production facility for the North American Market, supported by the sister production facility in Ulm, Germany for additional capacity if needed.
Nikola trucks can be purchased through our authorized dealers.
Electric HD vehicles have fewer moving parts and may require less maintenance. This is currently the case in electric passenger cars and buses, so it is plausible that the same will be true with HD trucks. Without an emissions or fuel delivery system, transmission or driveline, the core mx component items have been drastically reduced which should translate to reduced mx.
We currently have over 116 dealer locations that will sell & service Nikola trucks. We continue to add additional locations to our dealer network to ensure the vehicles have service options available.
We have partnered with a world class logistics provider to support, supply, and deliver parts efficiently to minimize downtime.
For Nikola vehicles, both are based on an electric drivetrain. The difference is the system responsible for generating the electric energy (batteries for the BEV; hydrogen fuel cells for the FCEV) that powers the electric drivetrain.
Our truck rides very smoothly with instant power and acceleration. You do not feel the shifting through the gears and it is much quieter than its diesel equivalent. Another difference is regenerative braking which is used both to slow the vehicle down and generate energy that goes back to the battery to assist with range.
Every modern battery system experiences some degree of degradation over its life cycle which can impact the range of an associated vehicle. We strive to limit the impact of battery degradation on vehicle range through the engineering of our vehicle systems and note that proper vehicle operation and maintenance are key to maximizing battery system life and vehicle range.
