Nikola said the merger will help accelerate vehicle production, allow it to break ground on its manufacturing facility in Coolidge, Ariz., and continue its hydrogen station infrastructure rollout.

“This is a
significant endorsement in fuel-cell and battery-electric technology,” said
Nikola’s founder and executive chairman Trevor Milton.

“With our
Nikola IVECO joint venture, and over $10 billion in pre-order reservations,
Nikola is positioned to be a wonderful story of how one company can literally
change the world.”


Girsky, CEO of VectoIQ, said his team is proud to support Nikola in its
transition to a public company.

The combined company expects to generate revenue by 2021 with the rollout of its Nikola Tre Class 8 battery-electric vehicle, followed by the Nikola Two Class 8 FCEV starting in 2023.
