“The presentation and testing of the Tesla Semi Truck are tentatively scheduled for October 26 in Hawthorne [California, USA], and it’s worth seeing this beast in person.
In August Reuters reported that Tesla’s goal in the development of this electric truck was to reach 480 kilometers on a single charge. This could mean for the company to enter the commercial freight market.
In addition, these Tesla advances are part of the company’s attempts to get out of its initial segment of luxury electric cars, just as it did in July by launching its most affordable model, the Tesla Model 3 sedan, which costs $ 35,000 and is able to travel 350 kilometers on a single charge.
