COOLIDGE — Nikola Motor Company is nearing completion of its manufacturing plant in the south of Coolidge. This week, the company announced it had completed all the floor slabs, steel and underground utilities components for the site.
Recent drone footage also shows that the roofing and siding are nearing completion as well.
In a report on the first quarter of 2021, Nikola officials said they expected technicians to arrive from their Germany plant to Coolidge by the end of the second quarter, to help build trucks at the Coolidge facility. Nikola has begun the assembly of the first Tre FCEV alpha in Coolidge.
The company also took major steps toward laying the groundwork for infrastructure for their planned hydrogen stations between Central Arizona and Los Angeles.
On May 6, the company reached an agreement with Total Transportation Services Inc., a leading port trucking company in Southern California, for 100 Nikola Class 8 BEV vehicles and fuel-cell semi-trucks.
