Nikola to open a HYLA refueling station in Southern California

Nikola said its Ontario station will be capable of fueling up to 40 Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric Class 8 trucks daily.

Nikola Corporation, via the HYLA brand, is opening its first HYLA hydrogen refueling station in Southern California. The station at 2445 East Guasti Road in Ontario, CA, will feature an advanced modular fueler. The company said its Ontario station will be capable of fueling up to 40 Nikola hydrogen fuel cell electric Class 8 trucks daily. This station is part of a 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.

Nikola said it will provide 24/7 support with on-site HYLA ambassadors and operation technicians.

“We are thrilled to open the first HYLA hydrogen refueling station in Southern Calif., marking a significant milestone for Nikola and offering convenient access for our customers,” President of Energy Ole Hoefelmann, said. “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.”

Working alongside industry leaders, Nikola said it is securing a robust hydrogen supply chain and refueling infrastructure to support its growing customer base.

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, Nikola said. Part of this network includes the recently announced 10-year agreement with FirstElement Fuel for a hydrogen refueling station in Oakland, CA.
