If you haven’t been following Elon Musk these past few years, the Tesla Semi is basically an all-electric battery-powered Class 8 semi truck/tractor in development and set for limited production run near the end of 2020, or possibly early 2021 now, due to the outbreak. Back during mid-January 2020, Tesla announced a winter testing program to validate the Semi in cold weather and low-traction conditions. Read more for a video and additional pictures of a few prototypes being tested in Alaska.
Another possible reason for a delay was mentioned by Elon Musk who commented on the lack of battery production capability and how he chose to use its current battery supply for passenger cars instead.
- Designed by Tesla
- Stealth matte black finish
- High gloss contrast Tesla logo
- Sleek design looks great at work or home
- Holds 12oz
The production Semi will have a 500 mile range on a full charge and with its new batteries and would be able to run for 400 miles (640 km) after an 80% charge in 30 minutes using a solar-powered “Tesla Megacharger” charging station.
