FILE PHOTO: An undated handout photo shows the new Cadillac Lyriq, one of the electric vehicles that General Motors Co said on October 20, 2020, that its Spring Hill, Tennessee, factory will begin to produce.
However, the deal came into question after a short seller attacked Nikola as a fraud, something the company denied.
The new deal, a non-binding memorandum of understanding, is subject to negotiation and a definitive deal, Nikola and GM said in separate statements.
Under the new agreement, GM will supply its fuel-cell system for Nikola’s Class 7 and Class 8 commercial semi-trucks, Nikola said.
The companies are also discussing Nikola’s potential use of GM’s Ultium electric battery system in its commercial trailers.
