1Range estimate was calculated using data obtained from Nikola proving grounds testing, real-world vehicle operation, and computational-based engineering and validation tools. Actual range will vary based on several factors including use case, vehicle characteristics, driver behavior, and environmental conditions.
2Based on vehicle capability. Actual refuel time will vary based on characteristics of the hydrogen fueling location, including fueling hardware and software protocol, fuel quantity, and fueling conditions.

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.

Our Coolidge, AZ facility will be the primary production facility for the North American Market.
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 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.
