Nikola Recalls EV Trucks Following Fire Probe

Nikola Corp announces its decision to recall all of the battery-powered trucks that it has delivered to date while halting all sales after an investigation into recent fires was performed. The investigation found the coolant leak inside the battery pack to be the source of the issue.

A spokesperson from the heavy-duty EV company revealed that a total of 209 battery-powered electric trucks from Nikola are currently in the marketplace. The company is making contact with dealers and buyers in an effort to recall all of these vehicles.

Internal investigations are underway, with Nikola’s safety and engineering teams convinced that a single supplier component is the sole source of the issue. While the company suspected foul play during a June investigation after trucks at its Phoenix, Arizona, headquarters, it has since ruled out this possibility. “Foul play or other external factors were unlikely to have caused the incident,” Nikola confirmed in a public statement.
