Nikola to supply 15 fuel cell trucks to Biagi Bros. Inc.

Nikola Tre Nikola Corp.’s Tre zero-emission vehicle

Nikola Corporation, which designs and builds zero-emission transportation solutions, is supplying logistics company Biagi Bros. Inc., based in Napa, Calif., with 15 Nikola Tre hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in the fourth quarter of 2023.

The zero-emission Class 8 trucks are projected to drive more than 100,000 miles per year to support the Biagi Bros.’ round-the-clock operations, as well as the company’s commitment to eliminating emissions from its fleet.

Andrea Biagi, president of Biagi Bros., said the company has been testing the Class 8 FCEVs since January 2022.

“After logging more than 12,000 miles, we are extremely pleased with the performance and specification of the trucks, and we are ready to move forward to officially build our zero-emission fleet later this year,” Biagi said.

Phoenix-based Nikola said the 15 FCEVs will be fueled at its recently announced hydrogen station in Ontario, Calif., in collaboration with TravelCenters of America.

With a range of 500 miles and an estimated fueling time of less than 20 minutes, the Tre FCEVs are among the longest-range commercially available zero-emission Class 8 tractors, according to Nikola.
