BYD, Nikola zero-emissions trucks help Anheuser-Busch deliver game-day beer


Anheuser-Busch has teamed up with fleet partners, Nikola Corporation and BYD Motors, to deliver Bud Light NEXT with zero-emissions. The special ‘zero-emission delivery’ leveraged the technology of both partner to sustainably deliver beer from Anheuser-Busch’s brewery in Van Nuys, California to bars and retailers in Los Angeles using only zero-emission vehicles. The extended range Nikola Tre hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) picked up a load of beer from the brewery and delivered it to the Anheuser-Busch AB One distribution facility in Carson, CA. From there, a BYD battery-electric 8TT day cab tractor delivered the beer to local bars and retailers to be enjoyed by consumers during the big game.

This milestone delivery also marked the expansion of Anheuser-Busch’s partnerships with both Nikola and BYD in California as part of the brewers’ global net-zero ambition and commitment to reducing carbon emissions across their U.S. value chain by 25% by 2025.

In 2018, Anheuser-Busch entered a partnership with Nikola for an order of hydrogen-electric powered semi-trucks to help transition its entire long-haul dedicated fleet to zero-emission vehicles.

This month, Anheuser-Busch and Nikola began a three-month pilot by placing two Nikola Tre alpha FCEVs into daily service within the brewer’s Southern California network.
