Elon Musk announces when Tesla semis will be delivered

After years of production delays, Elon Musk announced that Tesla semi-trucks will be delivered in December. This announcement was posted on Twitter, and states that Pepsi will receive the trucks on the first of the month.

This update comes almost five years after production of the trucks was first announced by Tesla. CNN reported in November 2017 that Tesla’s semis were in production. At that time, Musk said Tesla’s semis can go zero-to-60 in five seconds and can travel 500 miles with a full load. Musk restated that fact this week, and replied to his Tweet with, “500 mile range & super fun to drive.”

This week, CNN reported that trucks will finally be delivered to Pepsi’s Frito-Lay plant in Modesto and the Pepsi beverage plant in Sacramento, California. Andrea Foote, PepsiCo Sr. Director of Issues Management, said, “We are looking forward to this next step in our PepsiCo Positive journey and will provide more details once we have taken delivery.” It is currently unknown how many trucks will be delivered.

Fox Business expects Tesla semis to cost $180,000, but will qualify for a congressional tax break of up to $40,000.
