Tesla announces production of 100 electric semi-trucks this year

After many production delays and tentative timelines, Tesla is finally delivering on their promise to produce electric semi-trucks.

Electrek, a news site that reports on electric vehicles and sustainable energy, reported this week that Tesla plans to produce around 100 electric trucks by the end of the year. This confirmation comes one month after Elon Musk tweeted that Pepsico will receive the first trucks in December.

Electrek also recently reported that Tesla is preparing to produce 250 electric trucks in 2023. This would be a production of about five trucks per week. Despite the slow start, the company claims that in 2024 they will increase production to 50,000 electric semis per year.

The first Tesla semis are expected to make their debut appearance at their Semi Delivery Event on December 1 in Nevada.
