The battery-operated vehicle is the first and only Nikola class 8 non-fuel-powered truck in Texas
SAN ANTONIO — HOLT Truck Centers announced the arrival of its first on-highway, zero-emission, battery-operated class 8 truck, the Nikola Tre BEV. It will join HOLT’s fleet for parts delivery with plans to have the truck available to customers through HOLT Truck Centers later this year.
Nikola Corporation is the leading designer and manufacturer of heavy-duty commercial battery-electric vehicles (BEV), fuel-cell electric vehicles (FCEV) and energy infrastructure solutions. In July of 2021, HOLT Truck Centers became the only authorized dealer of the Nikola class 8 (33,000+ lbs.) trucks in Texas.
“HOLT Truck Centers is committed to evolving as the needs of our customers change. We are inspired by Nikola’s focus on developing innovative products for our industry and we want to bring those products into Texas for the benefit of the communities at large,” said Bert Fulgium, Senior Vice President at HOLT. “By adding Nikola vehicles to our fleet, and eventually our inventory, we are continuing our mission to provide quality options for our customers and invest in sustainable solutions.”
The Nikola Tre BEV can travel up to 350 miles on a full charge, delivers zero-emissions and is charged through a non-proprietary CCS type 1 connector and charging station. The benefits of Nikola vehicles are lower operational cost, improved safety, more power and less noise. Other features include regenerative braking, which slows the vehicle down and generates energy back into the battery.
