Well, it was a sun-soaked Sunday afternoon in Phoenix, Arizona, the heat mirroring the unexpected drama at the headquarters of Nikola. A bolt out of the blue, an electric truck, damaged in times past, sprang back to life, its flames dancing defiantly once again.
In the very heart of Nikola’s main hub, around 2 pm, that old, banged-up truck, quite like a phoenix from the ashes, ignited yet again. But no worries folks, not a soul was harmed, and before you knew it, the fire was nipped in the bud. That’s what the electric-truck manufacturer assured us all in a recent statement.
These old, battered trucks, they’re parked at Nikola’s Phoenix residence. You might ask, why keep them around? Well, it’s all about safety checks, and for the investigations that just seem to go on and on.
You might recall, just a month ago, Nikola was in the headlines, a fire had sparked a ruckus around their home base. Nikola, the company whose ticker symbol NKLA dances on the NASDAQ exchange, was quick to suggest something fishy was going on. Their suspicion of foul play made headlines, but thankfully, no one was left nursing burns. Multiple trucks were caught up in the blaze, but the company didn’t shed any light on whether Sunday’s spark was one of those victims.
For now, they’re keeping mum, leaving us with more questions than answers. But one thing is for sure, it’s never a dull moment at Nikola!
