eSAF developer Metafuels closes $8M seed round
Mesa, Arizona takes puts E-ONE electric fire truck in service

Nikola produced 42, wholesaled 35 hydrogen fuel cell electric Class 8 trucks for customers in US and Canada in 2023

Nikola Corporation in 2023 produced 42 and wholesaled 35 Class 8 Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). Of the seven trucks produced but not wholesaled, three are being used in an extended field test with a fleet partner, two are in continued validation and engineering and two are being used for service training/customer demos.


Nikola’s FCEV features a range of up to 500 miles and an estimated fueling time as low as 20 minutes. The company believes its truck is among the longest ranges of all commercially available zero tailpipe emission Class 8 trucks, with versatile applications ranging from drayage and intermodal to metro-regional truckload and less-than-truckload to certain specialized hauling use cases.

Our goal is to introduce a better, cleaner way to deliver goods to the North American market in a reliable package. Our FCEV customer pilot programs have shown strong results, with truck uptime at 98%—crucial for efficient fleet usage.

—Nikola CEO Steve Girsky

Assembled in Coolidge, Ariz., the FCEV commenced serial production on 31 July 2023, with the commercial launch on 28 September.

Nikola has not completed its quarterly review process or the preparation of its financial statements for the fourth quarter or year ended 31 December 2023. Nikola will announce information regarding 2023 financial results and 2024 outlook in the coming weeks.
