IVECO, FPT Industrial and Nikola unveiled the maquette of the Nikola TRE, the first vehicle resulting from the joint venture between CNH Industrial and Nikola, which involves the commercial vehicle brand and the powertrain specialist.
The vehicle is based on the IVECO S-WAY heavy-duty truck launched last July in Madrid, which has been extremely well received by customers and industry experts alike. The Nikola TRE integrates Nikola’s advanced electric technology and new-generation proprietary infotainment system.
The integration of the Nikola design on the IVECO S-WAY has been jointly carried out by Nikola and Italdesign - in its Head Quarters in Moncalieri (Turin). The design integration is a natural consequence of a partnership dating back to 2018 between the two companies, that already output the making of the first maquette of NIKOLA TRE, unveiled in Scottsdale, Arizona, United States, during the NIKOLA World Event in April 2019.
Gerrit Marx, President Commercial and Specialty Vehicles, stated: “The IVECO S-WAY is a stand-out product, which embodies IVECO’s concept of customer-centricity and has already gained momentum in the markets with well-deserved success. It is the bones of the Nikola TRE and marks the beginning of a new journey towards zero-emissions trucking, providing the platform for us to introduce disruptive features that will change the transport industry.”
The vehicle displayed at the event is a maquette of the Nikola TRE 4x2 tractor for regional missions, with a range of up to 400 km and dynamic performance equal or better than a diesel equivalent model.
The vehicle will feature a modular battery system with a total capacity of up to 720 kWh, which can be tailored to match different customers’ missions. The electric driveline will deliver 480 kW Continuous Power Output with 1,800 Nm Peak Torque.
The Nikola TRE will also be available in 2- and 3-axle rigid versions, with GVW ranging from 18 to 26 tonnes for urban distribution and municipality missions.
