Nikola Corporation has launched the European version of its heavy-duty battery-electric Class 8 truck, the Tre, in Europe today in collaboration with its transport partner IVECO. Nikola will officially accept orders for the fully-electric, zero-emissions Tre semi-truck starting today.

Nikola and IVECO announced today at the IAA Transportation 2022 event in Hanover, Germany, that the European 4×2 Arctic version of the Tre BEV is officially available for orders. It features nine batteries for total energy storage of 738 kWh, giving the vehicle a range of 530 kilometers, or roughly 329 miles. The truck also features 480 kW of continuous power to the FPT Industrial e-Axle, Nikola said, giving the vehicle enough torque and power to handle the most grueling hub-to-hub deliveries in a regional setting.

During the company’s Q2 Earnings, Nikola said in its Shareholder Deck that it launched a joint venture with IVECO that included engineering and production development. It also mentioned that both Nikola and IVECO planned to begin production of the Tre BEV in Europe in the second half of 2023. With orders just being placed, it gives Nikola roughly a year to begin production of the Tre BEV for the European market.
