Nikola hydrogen trucks to cart Budweiser around the US

AB In Bev has put an order in for 800 of Nikola Motor Cos Nikola Two truck

Beer maker and distributor Anheuser-Busch placed 40 pre-orders for the all-electric Tesla Semi late a year ago, but the biggest deal will the one concerning the order of up to 800 hydrogen trucks from startup Nikola Motor Company.

Salt Lake City, Utah-based Nikola said its trucks will have a range of between 500-1,200 miles (805-1,931 km) and take about 20 minutes to re-fuel, shaving minutes off the average time it takes to fuel up a diesel rig. It has more than 450 reservations so far - including 40 from Anheuser-Busch - but faces skepticism over range, payload, and cost. The newly-acquired trucks are expected to reduce Anheuser-Busch's carbon emissions arising from logistics by more than 18%.

"At Anheuser-Busch we're continuously searching for ways to improve sustainability across our entire value chain and drive our industry forward", - Michel Doukeris, CEO of Anheuser-Busch.

"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 U.S.", said Trevor Milton, CEO of Nikola Motor Company.

Protests break out in Paris against Macron government's reforms
Government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux had expressed fears Friday that the demonstration could turn violent, hence the high security.

The brewer, which has reportedly already placed orders for Tesla's upcoming electric-powered truck, said this week it will expand its clean-energy commitment through a new agreement with Tesla rival Nikola Motor Co. "By 2028, we anticipate having over 700 hydrogen stations across the United States of America and Canada". Since then, it has added another semi truck to the lineup and has announced plans for a $1 billion factory in Arizona. In reaction to the lawsuit filing, a Tesla spokesperson has asserted in an email interview with Reuters: "It's patently obvious there is no merit to this lawsuit".

The future of fuel cell vehicle (FCVs) technology in trucking applications looks markedly brighter in the wake of an announcement from Anheuser-Busch, the St. Louis, Missouri headquartered parent company of Budweiser beer.

Nikola seems to have waged an indirect war against Tesla for a while now.

The Phoenix Business Journal reported that Nikola Corp. sued Tesla for patent infringement in an Arizona federal court earlier this month.
