There's something ironic about learning that Nikola is suing Tesla, two companies both meant to honor maverick inventor Nikola Tesla, but the Salt Lake City-based Nikola Motor Co. has filed a suit against Silicon Valley rival claiming Tesla has infringed on its design patents.
"Tesla has never claimed that its design was unique", Nikola alleges.
Here's what Nikola's truck design, which it says it unveiled in May 2016, looks like compared to Tesla's.
"Tesla's infringement has harmed Nikola's ability to attract investors and partners because investors can now partner with Tesla to have an alternative fuel semi-truck". Nikola has demanded $2 billion in return from Tesla for the damages caused by company.
Almost three months after publishing its design, Nikola says Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed his company was in the early stages of developing its own all-electric semi.
Nikola filed a series of design patents with the US Patent and Trademark Office in December 2015 covering an electric heavy-duty truck. Nikola alleges Tesla copied the design and even advertised the view drivers had from its vehicle.
"This corresponded to a jump of roughly $2 billion in Tesla's market value", the complaint states. For example, Tesla has had problems with its batteries starting fires and its autonomous features causing fatal accidents.
Too similar? The Nikola One (left) and the Tesla. The facility where it will manufacture the trucks does not yet exist, and apparently, neither does the money for it. Nikola has previously said that it would build 360 hydrogen fueling stations in the US.
