The European Nikola Tre FCEV in beta version also made its debut, offering a preview of the future electric-powered semi-trailer for long-haul transport, and is expected to be launched in the second half of 2023 in North America and first half of 2024 in Europe.
“Nikola Tre’s zero-emission battery-electric and fuel-cell trucks are truly a game-changer in the commercial trucking industry,” said Michael Lohscheller, President, Nikola Company. “Developed specifically as electric vehicles, they deliver performance and a driving experience capable of rivaling their diesel-powered peers in the toughest missions. They offer operationally and financially viable zero-emission solutions for applications regional and long-distance transportation that will give customers a real competitive advantage.”
“Today we are making history with the first products for the European market from IVECO’s powerful partnership with Nikola Corporation,” said Luca SraPresident of the Truck Business Unit, Iveco Group. “Together, our teams have designed a modular platform capable of hosting both fuel cell and battery propulsion technologies, starting with the European 4×2 Artic version of the Nikola Tre BEV heavy truck making its debut here today. today. It is the first-ever electric-driven modular platform for articulated heavy-duty tractors to house both power sources: battery electric for missions of around 500 km and fuel cell electric powertrain for towing up to 800 km in its first generation. A true revolution that marks a tangible step towards our ambitious goal of achieving zero-emission transport.”
The European Nikola Tre BEV is produced by the Nikola IVECO Europe joint venture at its dedicated manufacturing facility in Ulm, Germany. The facility, which opened in 2021, has a final assembly process specifically designed for electric vehicles and operates to world-class manufacturing standards.
Orders open for European Nikola Tre BEV
Nikola and IVECO today announced the official opening of orders for the European 4×2 Artic version of the Nikola Tre BEV. The vehicle, which has a wheelbase of 4,021 mm, is equipped with nine batteries with a total energy storage of up to 738 kWh, which offers a range of up to 530 km. An 80% charge takes about 100 minutes at 350kW. With 480kW of continuous power from the FPT Industrial e-Axle, the truck has the power, torque and range to perform applications such as hub-to-hub deliveries and regional hauling – and its mileage can be extended with an opportunity recharge. This performance is accompanied by a low total cost of ownership, making it an operationally and financially viable zero-emissions solution.
In line with its driver-centric approach, every detail of the Nikola Tre BEV’s cabin is designed to enhance life on board with a spacious and well-appointed environment rich in comfort features and advanced functionality. The infotainment system is based on Nikola’s next-generation proprietary operating technology that integrates infotainment and navigation functions, as well as controls for most vehicle functions. The exceptionally smooth ride and quiet surroundings add up to the superior driving experience, which should make the Nikola Tre a real favorite with drivers across the world. Europe.
