Nikola, ITD Industries expand into Canada

Nikola notes that Canada is a premium market with its support for addressing the impacts of climate change.

Nikola Corporation has announced an expansion of its dealer network into Canada for its Class 8 truck sales and service coverage with the addition of ITD Industries Inc., a commercial trailer manufacturer and technology business headquartered in Toronto, ON.

Nikola said that Canada is “a premium market with its supportive population, industry and government as it relates to addressing the impacts of climate change and its ambitious plans to transition towards hydrogen and cleaner fuels.”

“Our ability to now include Nikola’s Class 8 zero-emission trucks in our growing product line-up is the perfect complement to our investments in electric trailer technology and a natural next step in our Company’s ambition to bring promising clean transportation solutions to the Canadian marketplace,” said Benny Di Franco, chief operating officer, ITD.

ITD’s Toronto-based premier Nikola showroom and service operations will be integrated into its manufacturing facility and features 55-foot ceilings and more than 78,000 square feet, the company said.

According to the companies, ITD will be promoting Nikola’s zero-emission trucks across its national sales channels and is a qualified dealer under the Federal government’s iMHZEV program.  ITD will be holding a launch event for industry and other interested stakeholders in the Fall of 2023 to share more about its partnership with Nikola.
