The class 8 truck will have a range of 800 to 1,200 miles between refueling. If the company delivers on that range, the truck might get from San Francisco to Cheyenne, Wyoming on one tank of gas. And the fuel needed for that trip will be included in the 72-month leasing program that company is offering.
To solve the limited supply of hydrogen along the highways of the United States and Canada, Nikola also announced its plans to build a Hydrogen production refinery, and Hydrogen stations to refuel its new trucks for the first million miles, for free.
