[ September 16, 2021   //   ]

The Nikola IVECO Europe joint venture has signed an agreement with the Port of Hamburg to test and implement heavy-duty electric vehicles and charging infrastructure during 2022. 

The memorandum of understanding was signed at the inauguration of Nikola and Iveco’s joint-venture manufacturing facility in Ulm, Germany. The agreement states their joint intent to partner in two phases encompassing up to 25 Nikola Tre battery-electric vehicles (BEV) for delivery to the Port throughout 2022.

The first phase involves testing of the Nikola Tre BEVs at the port for transport and logistics operations together with high-performance charging solutions. A second will see the full integration of the BEV vehicles in port operations, installation of charging infrastructure and on-site service support including major suppliers.
