Nikola Motor accuses Tesla

Nikola Motor Company accuses Tesla of the fact that the Tesla Semi truck is a copy of Nikola One presented in 2016. She sued Elon Musk for $ 2 billion.

According to Nikola, Tesla copied, among others, the shape of the fenders and the front panoramic windshield. She also demanded that the premiere of the new vehicle be stopped.

Tesla Semi premiered on November 17, 2017. It is the first electric vehicle from Elon Musk. On one charge, he has to drive up to 800 km. Its production is to start next year. Nikola One is expected to debut in 2020.

A spokeswoman for Tesla announced that the claim was unfounded.
