Nikola, a leading designer and manufacturer of heavy-duty commercial battery-electric and fuel cell vehicles, revealed today (July 15) the expansion of its US operations with five new independent dealers.
This includes more than 51 locations in Texas, Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Florida, Delaware, Virginia and Maryland.
It is expected that with the new independent dealers, this will support the roll out of Nikola’s fuel cell-powered Class 8 heavy duty trucks.
The five independent dealership additions to the Nikola dealer network average more than 80 years of providing strong sales and service support to customers.
The dealer expansion includes HOLT Truck Centers, Empire Truck and Trailer, Wagner Equipment, Ring Power and Carter Machinery.
This builds on a previous Nikola announcement of a partnership with RIG360 Service Network, a network of heavy-duty truck service and maintenance centres, to provide sales and service products for commercial customers at more than 65 RIG360 dealer locations throughout the Southeast, Midwest and Northeast regions of the United States.
Today’s announcement is anticipated to bring the number of Nikola sales and service locations up to 116 across the United States as it rapidly continues to fulfil its commitment to the expansion of the distribution network.
Pablo Koziner President of Nikola Energy, said, “These five new partners are expected to add a culture of customer focus and service leadership that we are building at Nikola.
“Customers will benefit from the strength and experience of these companies and their highly talented organisations.
“These dealers will work closely with customers in helping them maximise operational efficiencies, energy management, vehicle uptime and overall industry adoption in BEV and FCEV vehicles.”
Nikola Motor: A passion for zero emission
Founded in 2015 in Utah, Nikola Motor is rapidly becoming one of the most talked about vehicle manufacturers in North America and across the globe.
With a product portfolio that aims to vastly reduce carbon emissions, mainly in the truck and offroad transportation sector, Nikola’s focus on hydrogen fuel cell and battery innovations is ahead of the game, grasping the interest of many.
Today, as a large amount of zero emission vehicle news floods headlines, a lot of news in the states refers to Nikola Motor’s fuel cell innovations, especially as orders for its Badger electric-hydrogen pickup truck continue to flood in and the interest for the company’s other vehicles continue to grow.
