Poor ol’ Nikola can’t catch a break; earlier this year, it had to issue a recall for every single electric truck that it has built because it identified a coolant leak that caused the battery to burst into flames. Except, it turns out the problem wasn’t actually that simple. Now it’s going to take $61.8 million to replace the batteries in all of those recalled trucks.
See, Nikola did a little digging and realized that the batteries were plagued with issues that went well beyond the previously identified coolant issues, the company wrote in a blog post.
