Tesla finally delivered a real-life Semi to a customer, but there’s just one problem. And no, it’s not the fact that it’s three years late. We still don’t know shit about it. Although CEO Elon Musk introduced the first production Semi to PepsiCo on Thursday, he offered no additional details about things like the price of the truck, how many Tesla it would produce, how much it would weigh, the autopilot technology on board, or how much cargo it can carry. transport. Instead, it would appear that Musk simply offered lame platitudes about the truck. Reuters reports that the CEO said the Semi would reduce emissions from the road and outperform existing diesel trucks in both power and safety. He added that the fast-charging technology found in the Semi would find its way into the Cybertruck… whenever it does. in the event. This Semi was the first of 100 trucks PepsiCo purchased in 2017 with help from the California government. It was used to deliver refreshments for those in attendance at the launch in Nevada on Thursday. Other companies like Anheuser-Busch, UPS and Walmart also have reservations for Semis. Even though it’s been five years since the Semi was first introduced, we still only have preliminary information from Tesla. The company has said in the past that a 300-mile range version will cost $150,000 and a 500-mile range version will cost $180,000. Now, it’s impossible to know for sure, but when you consider the fact that Tesla’s regular passenger car prices have skyrocketed since then, it’s unlikely the Semi will continue to command these prices. G/O Media may receive a commission According to Reuters, Robyn Denholm, president of Tesla, said the automaker plans to produce 100 Semis this year. It is a tall order as there is less than a month to go until 2022. However, in 2024, the company aims to build 50,000 trucks. Musk has said in the past that the Semi has been completing tests between Fremont, California, and Sparks, Nevada. The 500-mile trip can be done on a single charge, according to Musk, while the Semi and cargo weighed 81,000 pounds. It is not yet clear how much of that weight is the truck itself. An interesting note, Reuters says that Musk did not answer questions at the end of the event, which is different from what he has done in the past. One senior analyst called the whole thing, “[n]It’s not very impressive. So I guess we’ll have to wait even longer to learn something definitive and worthwhile about the Tesla Semi. Surely it won’t take another five years, right?
