The English version is an in house-translation. In case of any discrepancy, the Swedish text will prevail.
Nikola Motor, the Utah-based company that is developing heavy-duty transport trucks using fuel cell powertrains, has announced that they have chosen PowerCell Sweden AB as their primary supplier of fuel cell stacks for their pre-production testing vehicles. "If all goes well during road testing, we plan on integrating PowerCell S3 fuel cell stacks into our production line-up", said Nikola Founder and CEO Trevor Milton.
PowerCell S3 (100 kW) is a fuel cell stack with best-in-class power density and is primarily designed for automotive application. The compact design makes it easy to integrate in vehicles of different types. The stack is based on industrial components which makes it suitable for volume production.
By 2021, Nikola Motor Company will bring to market the Nikola Two, a class 8 hydrogen-electric truck line-up that will deliver more than 1,000 horsepower and 2,000 ft. lbs. of torque - nearly double the horsepower of any semi-truck on the road - all with "zero local emissions," as previously announced by Nikola.
The unique high power density of PowerCell S3 makes the fuel cell stack attractive to customers like Nikola Motor that aspire to deliver top performance and zero-emissions.
"We are excited and feel honoured by the Nikola appointment and are looking forward to the first order and to deliver cutting edge zero emission power for the Nikola trucks.", said Per Wassén, CEO of PowerCell Sweden AB.
