Tesla sued for $2 billion by hydrogen truck startup over alleged patent infringement

Tesla sued for $2 billion by hydrogen truck startup over alleged patent infringement

2018-05-01

There is ‘no merit to this lawsuit,’ Tesla says

Nikola Motor Company has filed a lawsuit in Arizona alleging that Tesla’s all-electric Semi infringes on the hydrogen truck startup’s patents. The lawsuit claims Tesla willfully copied these patents in creating its electric truck, and Nikola is seeking $2 billion in damages in return.

“It’s patently obvious there is no merit to this lawsuit,” a spokesperson for Tesla told The Verge. A representative for Nikola Motors said in a statement to The Verge that “[w]e are not commenting because it is in the courts. The lawsuit speaks for itself.”
