Tesla says Nikola lifted truck design from Rimac - report

Tesla has accused zero-emissions vehicle start-up Nikola of stealing the design for its semitruck from a Rimac designer, Electrek reported on Thursday.

In an update to its patent lawsuit, Tesla now alleges that some of the design of the Nikola One was lifted from Adriano Mudri, who is director of design at Rimac and designed the Road Runner concept truck.

Earlier this week, it was reported talks between Nikola Corporation and BP for the company's hydrogen-refueling station project were put on hold amid allegations of fraud at the electric vehicle start-up.
