Tesla is celebrating the start of deliveries of semi-electric trucks with a special event on December 1st

Late last week, Tesla officials said the company’s minority shareholders may reserve the right to attend a ceremony at the company’s Nevada plant that will be dedicated to the start of serial deliveries of semi-electric trucks, which that site has been producing since early October. This week, Tesla reminded that the event is scheduled for December 1st.

According to note bannerAt the same time, the Nevada plant will host a ceremony to unveil the first semi-trucks to Tesla corporate customers, which may include PepsiCo, as the soda maker’s management has expressed confidence in its ability to receive the first trucks this quarter. It was later announced that Tesla Semi Trucks in the current version will not use 4680 battery cells.

After the introduction of the Tesla Semi in 2017, the company has constantly delayed the start of its mass production, although the original plan was to start production of several thousand examples in 2019. Well, like I said The Wall Street Journal Referring to the testimony of the chairman of the board of Tesla Robin Denholm (Robin Denholm) in court, the company claims that by the end of this year it will not release more than a hundred cars of this model. By 2024, the annual production of Tesla Semi is to be increased to 50,000 units. The capacity of the new manufacturing facility in Nevada, where the first commercial examples of the Tesla Semi will be assembled, is limited to five examples per week, according to some estimates. As a result, the company is now able to assemble a maximum of 250 cars per year, although the CEO’s forecast indicates higher productivity. The main responsibility for the release of Tesla Semi will fall on the company in Texas, but so far the trucks are only assembled in Nevada.
