CNH Industrial has entered into a strategic and exclusive heavy-duty truck partnership with Nikola Corporation, based in Phoenix, Arizona.
CNH Industrial will take a $250m strategic stake in Nikola as the lead Series D investor. Pre-money valuation was set a $3bn. Nikola anticipates raising over $1nm in the D round, granting approximately 25% ownership to new investors and business partners, including CNHI.
The partnership will accelerate industry transformation towards emission neutrality of Class 8 / heavy duty trucks in North America and Europe through the adoption of fuel cell technology. Nikola’s heavy-duty trucks, powered by hydrogen fuel cell and battery technology, will be the first-to-production.
