Nikola's talks with energy firms stalled after short-seller report - WSJ

Sept 23 (Reuters) - Nikola Corp’s talks with energy firms including BP PLC to build hydrogen-refueling stations have been stalled following a short-seller’s allegations that the electric automaker misled investors, the Wall Street Journal reported.
