Zeem Solutions has executed a purchase order for 100 Nikola Class 8 Tre battery-electric vehicles to ensure immediate availability of electric trucks for freight and logistics companies utilizing Zeem's all-inclusive EV depot fleet solution.
Zeem is focused on delivering a faster, simpler way for commercial fleets to transition to BEVs by bundling electric vehicles, charging solutions, maintenance, and other services as a flat operating expense. Zeem's purchase order for the 100 Nikola Tre BEVs will help to satisfy Zeem's current customer demand at their California depot and other future national locations.
Nikola has entered into commercial production of its Class 8 vehicles and has immediate availability to supply customers like Zeem.
"Zeem Solutions is pioneering a new way for fleets to adopt battery-electric commercial vehicles by providing the vehicles, charging, parking and maintenance with maximum availability and minimal capital investment," said Nikola's Commerical President Pablo Koziner in a statement. "Nikola is committed to supporting Zeem to ensure their customers receive maximum value and best-in-class support."
"Over the last year, we have seen major demand for Class 8 tractors from fleet operators and the Nikola team has a well-built production vehicle that is deliverable today and fits the range requirements of our customers," said Paul Gioupis, CEO of Zeem Solutions. "The Nikola team has been great to work with, they care about their customers, and we look forward to deploying their vehicles throughout 2023."
Through this partnership, Nikola and Zeem plan to work toward accelerating the adoption of zero-emission commercial trucks by providing a pathway for fleets to experience the benefits of BEV technology while helping companies meet their sustainability goals economically.
