Credo che negli Usa non siano ancora omologabili, almeno di sicuro non lo sono per le auto, credo che la cosa valga anche per i veicoli commerciali

BYE BYE!

Ma parlano di USA ma sinceramente non lo vedo molto “americano”, un po perchè non è il classico “musone” e poi perché viene assemblato in Germania quindi venderlo li comporta dazi. 
Vabbe che specificano che si tratta solo di assemblaggio quindi i componenti (cabina, telaio) vengono tutti dallo stabilimento spagnolo di Iveco

Nikola showcases German plant nearing first production of electric trucks

The first battery-powered models will be delivered to customers in the U.S. early next year, with a fuel cell version slated to follow by the end of 2023

A Nikola Tre battery-electric heavy-duty truck on the Iveco test track in Ulm.

Nikola offered the public a look at the production line the company is counting on to start delivering trucks to customers in the wake of its founder being charged with securities fraud.

The U.S. manufacturer hosted an event Wednesday in Ulm, Germany, where its partner Iveco -- the commercial vehicle unit of CNH Industrial -- is preparing to start series production of Nikola Tre heavy-duty trucks by year-end.

The first battery-electric models will be delivered to customers in the U.S. early next year, with a fuel cell version slated to follow by the end of 2023.

Nikola is looking to turn the page on a tumultuous period after it went public by combining with a blank-check company in June of last year.

Shares of the truckmaker with virtually no revenue initially skyrocketed, briefly making the company worth than Ford Motor.

The stock came crashing down after a short seller accused founder Trevor Milton of misleading investors.

Milton stepped down as executive chairman in September and pleaded not guilty to fraud charges in July.

The company is keen to deliver a message of "focus and execution," CEO Mark Russell said during an interview in Ulm. "In spite of all of the challenges like COVID and supply disruptions, here we are."

Nikola shares rose as much as 8.8 percent before the start of regular trading and were up 3.6 percenmt to $10.27 as of 7 a.m. in New York. The stock has plunged almost 90 percent from its peak in June 2020.

Ulm plans

Russell followed Milton to Nikola from metals manufacturer Worthington Industries, which acquired one of Milton's earlier business ventures.

Last month, the CEO cut Nikola's projection for initial deliveries this year to 25 to 50 trucks, citing shortages of semiconductors and other parts.

Although scarce supplies of chips could render the vehicles ineligible for sale, Nikola still plans to deliver them to customers for testing and charge for them once they're retrofitted with missing parts.

Next year, the Ulm facility will build as many as 100 trucks, with demand "far exceeding capacity," Iveco CEO Gerrit Marx said.

The plant will eventually be able to make 3,000 trucks annually across three shifts. Nikola plans to open its second site in Coolidge, Arizona, next year to produce fuel cell-powered trucks.

Nikola and Iveco have invested 40 million euros ($47 million) to upgrade the latter company's chassis engineering hub in Ulm for final assembly of the Tre.

The heavy-duty truck with a driving range of 560 kilometers (348 miles) is designed for shorter trips such as moving freight within industrial ports or garbage collection. It will be underpinned by an Iveco platform with modules from the manufacturer's factories in Spain.

Nikola is handling vehicle controls, including driver-facing software, and proprietary technology related to designing the Tre's 4.5-ton battery pack.

 

In addition to unveiling their joint venture facility on Wednesday, Iveco and Nikola announced an agreement with the Hamburg Port Authority to test up to 25 battery-electric Tre trucks starting next year.

Iveco has stood by Nikola while other big-name partners have pulled back.

General Motors dropped a tentative plan to take a stake in the company and produce an electric pickup called the Badger.

Their remaining agreement for Nikola to use GM's hydrogen fuel cell technology in its trucks now appears to be in limbo -- Nikola announced earlier this month it will source fuel cell systems from German supplier Robert Bosch.

"There were enough reasons to stop all of this -- the last 24 months would have equipped us with enough reasons, everybody would have understood," Iveco's Marx said. "But we never even considered it."

Sempre che la Nikola non si riveli una sorta di scatola vuota... 

beh non è Tesla, anzi sta facendo come Tesla che all’inizio produceva la Elisa elettrica, potrebbe tanto fallire (e Iveco ne potrebbe acquisire fabbriche USA e due/tre brevetti) e tanto esplodere come Tesla e Rivian

come già si è rivelata…

Ma certe cose di dimenticano? 😮

Casini ce ne sono stati ma, nonostante tutto, se hai ancora l'appoggio di due partner industriali come CNHi e Bosch, tanto male non stai.

      Iveco Group name and logo usher in the future of new On-Highway player
      A new On-Highway reality takes shape as a global organization tasked with safeguarding, supporting and bolstering eight unique, yet unified brands. This is the new Iveco Group and the unveiling of its logo is a further step towards the completion of the spin-off of this business from CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE: CNHI / MI: CNHI), which is expected to occur in early 2022.
      Representing this reality is its own institutional logo which depicts Iveco Group as the holding company. With a light and understated design, it places the importance on the brands which it houses and pays homage to their rich and shared heritage, clearly delineating a forward trajectory for all of them, together. A name that accounts for the long journey these industrial businesses have come up from, starting in 1975 with the formation of the Industrial VEhicles COrporation.
      A unique identity which uses a sober typeface, featuring cuts and inclinations into some of the letters to express the group’s sharp focus. The color grey evokes a sense of stability and a strong industrial DNA, acting as a cue for the humble, yet hardworking way forth for the Company, as it works in earnest determination to achieve its goals. The blue dot between the words “Iveco” and “Group” interrupts the color scheme to signal the future, one that is influenced by sustainable innovation. This circle adds a further element that will serve as a center point and dynamic graphic device, suggesting balance and placing attention on the details in the full logo composition.
      Below the logo is the trickle down of the brands spread across one horizon. At the center of the Group are the beacon businesses: IVECO, a pioneering commercial vehicles brand that designs, manufactures and commercializes heavy, medium and light duty commercial vehicles and FPT Industrial, the core of the Group which powers its sister brands’ products with its advanced engines and transmissions and remains a global leader in providing its vast array of powertrain technologies to customers in agriculture, construction, marine, power generation, and commercial vehicles alike. 
      Alongside them on the frontline are premium and mass-transit bus and coach brands IVECO BUS and HEULIEZ; Iveco Defence Vehicles for highly-specialized defense and civil protection equipment; ASTRA, a global expert in large scale heavy duty quarry and construction vehicles; the industry-reputed firefighting vehicle and equipment manufacturer Magirus; and finally, but strategically sat at the top of the tail is IVECO CAPITAL, the financing arm of Iveco Group which supports them all. The Financial Services division will in fact serve as the cornerstone of Iveco Group’s new business models, especially in the area of alternative power.
