Step by step, Nikola seems to be fighting his way back into e-mobility. At least that’s the impression you get when you look at the news situation over the past few weeks. In cooperation with PGT Trucking, Inc. (PGT), an international multi-service transport company for flatbed vehicles, Nikola wants to position the electric drive in heavy-duty transport. For this purpose, PGT initially wants to lease 100 Nikola Tre fuel cell electric vehicles from the American start-up.
The leasing contract includes the Nikola Tre FCEV, scheduled maintenance and hydrogen refueling solutions. The delivery of hydrogen trucks to PGT is expected to start in 2023 when the production is included in Nikolas production facility in Coolidge, Arizona. Pablo Koiner, President, Energy and Commercial at Nikola, is pleased with pleasing with the cooperation with PGT: “We are pleased that PGT has decided on a partnership with Nikola to advance and introduce FCEV technology.”
In addition, Koziner is to understand that Nikola believes that their hydrogen stromer PGT will help to “reach their goals, namely, to continuously improve the driver experience, reduce their CO2 footprint and increase the efficiency of their operations, While you offer great added value to your customers.”It is also that Nikola continues to record great progress in accelerating the introduction of hydrogen trucks by integrating specially made vehicles, energy solutions and the sales and service network.
With the hydrogen variant of the Tre, which can cover up to 800 km on one tank, Nikola wants to serve customers who value a long range with quick refueling times. An approach that PGT addressed. Gregg Troian, President of PGT Trucking, describes the cooperation as follows: “This partnership gives us the opportunity to offer our customers advanced transport solutions that align with the companies’ sustainability initiatives and reduce their carbon footprint through the use of innovative energy sources. Sustainable freight transport increases safety, reduces costs and CO2 emissions and improves economic efficiency.”

A lot can happen in 2 years.
Nikola gives 20 minutes refueling time, as does Toyota for its H2 trucks in a port area in the USA.
This information is available at the BEV.
With future megawatt charging with charging robots, it would take about 30 minutes from 10 to 80%.
The question remains which price tag is stuck to the H2 vehicles and the H2 filling stations.
…good, good, good! Yes, long ranges and fast refueling are very important for long-distance transport with heavy-duty trucks – and (at least the German) H2 filling station density is already sufficient for this today. In addition: Hydrogen is unlimited – as in heaven, so also on earth. Its ‘green’ production definitely needs further improvement and all European research funds for these technologies are well spent.
Interesting that the vehicles are only leased and not bought. It is rare for a manufacturer to lease directly and not a leasing company. I think the customer will have left a back door in case the vehicle doesn’t meet spec. I’m curious if and how many Nikolas there will be.
