Tesla Delivers First Semi Trucks

The long-hauler was initially announced in 2017 and had production planned for 2019. But as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and global parts shortages, production had been delayed. PepsiCo representatives are the first to receive batch number one of the trucks. PepsiCo had originally reserved the first 100 semis shortly after the Tesla long-haulers were revealed.

The Semi is powered by four independent motors on the rear axles, can accelerate 0-60mph in 20 seconds, and has a battery range of up to 500 miles.

There have already been orders from numerous businesses like Walmart and FedEx. The Tesla long-haulers are estimated to start at $150,000.

The Semi has traction control to prevent jackknifing, regenerative braking for increased battery efficiency, and an automatic clutch for seamless highway driving.

“So what’s our actual mission? Our actual mission is to accelerate the advent of sustainable energy. So that’s why we’re making this wide range of cars that don’t really make sense from a brand standpoint.”

Elon Musk
