We want to amend everything about the transportation industry, with Nikola’s vision; the world will be cleaner, safer and healthier. – Company CEO Trevor MiltonNikola’s Executive Vice President of Hydrogen Jesse Schneider next laid out Nikola’s hydrogen fuel cell vision, which consists of the world’s first purpose-built fuel cell Class 8 truck, enabling more hydrogen storage, optimized placement of the powertrain and a robust 70 MPa hydrogen fueling network. On the trucking side, Nikola offered the Nikola One, the Two and the Tre. Milton noted how other companies are working on hydrogen trucks, but he took pride in being the first to go down the path. As hydrogen is one of the amplest found and renewable fuels on the planet, Milton sought this to be the right time for a hydrogen truck. Thus the primary key is the fuel cells, which provide the necessary power and range. The tractors feature a 250 kWh capacity with an 800-volt AC motor and, single-speed direct drive transmission and a low-noise gear. Available in either 6x2 or 6x4 tractor configuration, the tractor features liquid-cooled e-axles. The company will offer the Two and Tre in both hydrogen-electric and battery electric models. Milton expects about 80 percent of the sales to be the hydrogen-electric models.
