Nikola opened its first HYLA hydrogen refueling station in Southern California. The station features an advanced modular fueler and will be capable of fueling up to 40 Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric Class 8 trucks daily.
The station is part of the company’s plan to establish up to 60 hydrogen refueling solutions in the coming years, with nine planned to be in place by the close of Q2 2024.
“We are thrilled to open the first HYLA hydrogen refueling station in Southern California, marking a significant milestone for Nikola and offering convenient access for our customers,” said Ole Hoefelmann, president of energy, in a statement. “Easing the transition to a zero-emission trucking future and prioritizing access to a hydrogen solution network is our top objective and we’re just getting started. Once the nine planned solutions are in place by mid-2024, Nikola will have established one of the world’s largest heavy-duty hydrogen refueling networks, providing customers accessibility at their current locations and along their planned routes.”
The HYLA refueling solutions network will offer Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and other Class 8 customers flexible refueling options, including modular and permanent HYLA stations, customer-owned facilities, and partnerships with public truck stops.
