A world of zero emissions and autonomous vehicles is coming.

That was the proclamation by Britton Worthen, chief legal officer for Nikola Corporation, during a question-and-answer session with Jon Vlaming, community development director for the city of Eloy, at the Pinal Alliance for Economic Growth annual luncheon on Tuesday at Robson Ranch in Eloy.

“It’s not a matter of if it will happen, it’s a matter of when,” Worthen said.

Nikola has proposed to build a 1-million-square-foot facility in Coolidge that would manufacture hydrogen electric semi-trucks. That announcement came after Lucid Motors announced its plans to build a manufacturing facility in Casa Grande for electric vehicles.
