After the many controversies over the past 5 months, the manufacturer Nikola Motors seems to be taking its head out of the water and announcing its program for the future range of its trucks.
Trevor Milton, its former CEO, has been accused of improving the financial and technological situation of the company. The anger of the shareholders had led to his departure despite the internal investigation carried out by the law firm Kirkland & Ellis which concluded that there had been no "complex and large" fraud contrary to what had been announced.
Nikola is therefore turning to hydrogen, which is supposed to combine all the advantages of diesel while being ecological, as Jason Roycht, global head of the hydrogen range at Nikola, announces: “To accelerate the transition to a carbon-free future, the The transportation industry needs heavy duty, zero emission utility vehicles designed to match the weight and range capabilities of today's diesel trucks ”.
The first versions of the hydrogen truck will roll out of Nikola factories in 2023.
