$NKLA $TSLA merger with $NKLA Nikola Motors might also be an appropriate partner for Tesla. Where Tesla and Nikola Motors compete is in the heavy-duty trucking space. Both Companies have concept trucks, that are yet to go into production as these vehicles are considerably more difficult to engineer as EVs. Rather than competing for position in this space, if Tesla and Nikola joined forces, the ‘Nikola Tesla heavy-duty truck’ would have an easier time in displacing Daimler (ETR: DAI) and Volvo (STO: VOLV-B) as the dominant players in this space. Not to mention, the two companies merging would generate a considerable amount of buzz and attention for their vehicles.
