Nikola (NASDAQ:NKLA) stock is getting a boost on Tuesday following news that the electric vehicle (EV) company is expanding its business to Canada.

According to a press release from the EV company, Nikola has expanded into Alberta, Canada with the sale of a Nikola Tre battery-electric vehicle (BEV) and a Nikola Tre hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV). These vehicles were sold to the Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA).

AMTA intends to introduce these vehicles in its Hydrogen Commercial Vehicle Demonstrations Project. The organization has also secured the refueling support needed for them from Nikola.

Doug Paisley, Board Chair at AMTA, said the following about the purchase:

“We are excited to put these Nikola trucks to work in Alberta and begin collecting performance data, raising awareness to this advanced technology, promoting early adoption, and creating industry confidence in such an innovative technology.”

What This Means for NKLA Stock

Investors are excited about what this news means for NKLA stock. If the performance of the vehicles goes well, it could result in more deals with Canadian agencies seeking out the company’s offerings.

That’s especially true as Canada is moving toward decarbonization. If the country continues down this route, it may mean more business for Nikola, which would be a benefit to NKLA stock.
