Nikola Corporation has revealed plans to expand its dealer network into Canada in collaboration with ITD Industries Inc., a prominent commercial trailer manufacturer and technology firm headquartered in Toronto, ON.
ITD Industries is recognised for its experience in transportation equipment manufacturing, having built over 20,000 trailers and established a growing customer base across Canada and the U.S.
Nikola’s President and CEO, Steve Girsky, stated, “Bringing ITD on board as our first Canadian dealer is an exciting move for Nikola. Canada’s zero-emission vehicle friendly environment for Class 8 trucks, fueled by attractive incentives and its ambitious carbon reduction goals, makes it a strategic market for the future of transportation.”
ITD’s facilities in Toronto, serving as a premier Nikola showroom and service center, will be integrated into its manufacturing facility, featuring ample space and modern amenities.
Philip Turi, COO of ITD stated, “We are extremely excited to be leveraging our brand, reputation and new partnership with Nikola to be that accelerant here in Canada.”
Nikola anticipates substantial growth in Canada, with eligibility for the Incentives for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Zero-Emission Vehicles (iMHZEV) Program, offering incentives for Nikola’s hydrogen fuel cell electric and battery-electric trucks. Additionally, the company qualifies for the Clean BC Go Electric Rebates in British Columbia, making its vehicles even more attractive to Canadian organizations.
