Former Opel CEO Michael Lohscheller has changed companies and moved to Nikola. At the end of February 2022, the US commercial vehicle manufacturer announced that Lohscheller had been appointed president of the company. So after just four months as managing director of Vietnamese automaker VinFast, he resigned from this office. Prior to that, he had spent four years running Opel Automobile GmbH.
CEO Mark Russell explained: “Michael Lohscheller brings several decades of direct automotive industry expertise to our already successful leadership team at Nikola. Its role will be immediately critical as the Nikola Tre BEV enters production and we continue to achieve development milestones for the Nikola Tre FCEV.”
Lohscheller said, also in English: “It goes without saying that hydrogen fuel cell and battery-electric zero-emission vehicles are the future of mobility, and I am extremely proud to be joining a company that is paving the way for this global transformation.”
