Trucking technology company Wabco is investing $10 million in Nikola Motor Co., making a bet that the startup's fuel cell truck technology has legs.
Nikola Motor founder and CEO Trevor Milton on why the present of heavy-duty trucks is diesel but the future is hydrogen-electric.
Nikola Motor plans to begin a yearlong field test of its hydrogen fuel cell electric truck next fall; the company also has selected its fuel cell providers and is staffing up for a 2021 production start.
Fuel cell truck startup Nikola Motor Co. added depth to its management team by naming a key technology player from Ryder System and the managing director of an investment house to senior positions.

Nikola Motor isn’t just clean trucks. The company will begin marketing a powerful all-electric off-road vehicle in 2018.
