“We want to transform everything about the transportation industry,” said Trevor Milton, CEO of Nikola, at last night’s unveiling of a range of hydrogen fuel cell trucks. “With Nikola’s vision, the world will be cleaner, safer and healthier.”

Of the vehicles shown in Scottsdale, Arizona, arguably the most interesting was the Tre (pictured), which is aimed squarely at the European market. It has a range of between 500 and 750 miles depending upon load, and will have fast hydrogen fueling in under 15 minutes.

“Think about Europe with no more diesel trucks,” said Milton. “The roads will be clean, quiet and beautiful.”

Imexpart launches new range of steering and suspension parts


Imexpart has launched a range of steering and suspension parts for trucks, vans and buses.

The APLUS range consists of ball joints, centre rods, draglinks, tie rods, track control arms, repair kits, tie rod ends, wishbones, stabilisers, idler arms, V bars, axial joints and bushings, covering multiple applications.

Owner and MD Arthur Pinkney said: “This is an exciting time for us; launching our exclusive range of APLUS parts, which are designed, manufactured and tested in a state-of-the-art European facility producing OE quality with aftermarket flexibility. We will be adding more parts this year and everything will be supplied with the necessary accessories to offer a first-time fit.”

Pinkney believes that the UK parts aftermarket is “saturated” with copy parts and Far Eastern imports that are not up to the job. “Imexpart has never compromised on quality and only works with manufacturers that have an OE pedigree,” he said.
