Nikola Motor Company and Saint Holdings recently announced the acquisition by Nikola of approximately 400 acres of property in Coolidge, Arizona. Nikola plans to build its hydrogen-electric class 8 trucks at its manufacturing facility at this location and anticipates the project will bring approximately 2,000 jobs to the region by 2024.
“We are excited to have Pinal County and the City of Coolidge as the future home of our manufacturing facility. Both the county and the city have been extremely helpful as we work to make this project happen. We are also grateful to Saint Holdings for their support of our vision on this groundbreaking endeavor,” said Britton Worthen, Nikola’s chief legal officer and company lead for the site selection process.
Nikola Corporation designs and manufactures hydrogen-electric vehicles, electric vehicle drive trains, vehicle components, energy storage systems, and hydrogen stations. The privately held company is bringing some of the nation’s most advanced semi-trucks to market with more than 13,000 trucks on pre-order.
