Grants have been awarded for the first electric vehicle projects to be funded through the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy's (EGLE) Michigan Clean Diesel Program. The projects in Livonia and Cadillac will replace a 1996 Class 8 Freightliner diesel semi-truck with a new 2022 Nikola Tre BEV Class 8 electric semi-truck, and a 2014 diesel school bus with an electric school bus. 'We are excited to partner with EGLE in reducing diesel emissions, while also having the privilege of operating the first Nikola class 8 fully electric truck in Michigan.
