The Anheuser-Busch brewing corporation announced an order placement for up to 800 hydrogen fuel cell semi-trucks from Nikola Motor Company. The company intends to convert its entire dedicated fleet to renewable power by 2025.

Trevor Milton, CEO of Nikola Motor Company said: “Hydrogen-electric technology is the future of logistics and we’re proud to be leading the way. Anheuser-Busch has a long history of investing in progressive, sustainable technology and we are excited to partner with them to bring the largest hydrogen network in the world to the USA. By 2028, we anticipate having over 700 hydrogen stations across the USA and Canada. With nearly 9 billion dollars in pre-order reservations, we are building to order, not speculation, and are very excited for what’s to come.”

The company claims its Nikola Two and Nikola Tre (European variant) will come in both hydrogen and electric variants. However, it still shares that the hydrogen trucks will be for long-haul application, and the all-electric semis should be reserved for inner city trips and/or those that carry less weight.
