Elon Musk Announces Release Date For Electric Semi

UNITED STATES—On October 6, entrepreneur, founder, and CEO of Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX), CEO of the electric cars/solar panels maker, Tesla, co-founder of PayPal, and new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk announced the date of the debut of the first electric 18-wheelers to hit the streets will be in 2022.

“Excited to announce start of production of Tesla Semi Truck with deliveries to @Pepsi on Dec. 1st,” Musk tweeted.

The Pepsi Company (PepsiCo) is the first customer for Tesla’s new vehicle. The company ordered the first 100 electric powered 18-wheelers to be used in local distribution. Pepsi endured a long wait as they ordered semis to add to the Pepsi fleet back in 2017.

Reports indicate that UPS and Walmart are also on the list of customers to purchase the new energy saving semi-trucks.

Reservations were made for these vehicles in May 2022. A total of $150,000 is the price for one standard model electric powered semi-truck. There is also a longer option with up to 804 km autonomy. For $180,000, this truck will be capable of going 500 miles before a recharge is needed.

If consumers would like to allow your little tyke to have a die-cast model of the new electric powered 18-wheelers, there is a diecast model available on the Tesla website for $175.
