PHOENIX – July 14, 2022 -- Nikola Corporation (Nasdaq: NKLA), a global leader in zero-emissions transportation and energy infrastructure solutions, strongly urges ALL stockholders to vote IMMEDIATELY for Proposal 2 ahead of the Annual Meeting of Stockholders on July 18, 2022.

With the support of our stockholders, Nikola is now less than 1% short of the outstanding shares needed to be voted in favor for Proposal 2 to pass.
