Reading Time: 2 minutes

Telsa has already won the electric car race and is poised to take control of the electric semi industry

Telsa C.E.O. Elon Musk delivered the tech company’s first two fully electric Semi Trucks to Pepsi, one of its biggest clients. The delivery comes almost four years after it promised to have them on the road. 

The Tesla Semi is a game changer that can travel 500 miles on a single charge and with the fastest megawatt charger in the industry. In 30 minutes, the SemiSemi can be fully charged and back on the road. The truck carries three electric motors, one short as initially designed and can pull a weight of 82,000 pounds. Tesla also claims the SemiSemi is guaranteed for 1 million miles and can not jack knife, a common problem known to semis.

According to Tesla, the features of its Semi are second to none and are now the new industry standards. As per Tesla’s website;

Badass Performance

Three independent motors provide instant torque and unmatched power at any speed so drivers can merge safely and keep pace with traffic. Accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 25 seconds, fully loaded, and maintain highway-level speeds even up steep grades.

 Maximum Safety

Semi comes standard with active safety features that pair with advanced motor and brake controls to deliver traction and stability in all conditions. A central seating position gives the driver better visibility, while an all-electric architecture reduces rollover risk and cabin intrusion in case of an accident.

Massive Range

With less than 1.25 kWh per kilometer of energy consumption, Semi can travel up to 800 kilometers on a single charge. Recover up to 70 percent of range in 30 minutes using Tesla’s Semi Chargers.

 Low Cost of Ownership

With less than 1.25 kWh per kilometer of energy consumption, Semi can travel up to 800 kilometers on a single charge. Recover up to 70 percent of range in 30 minutes using Tesla’s Semi Chargers.

The request for Tesla Semi trucks has exceeded all expectations and climbed daily. Major companies like Walmart, Pepsi, Anheuser-Busch, Sysco, UPS, DHL are investing tens of millions of dollars to upgrade their fleet after analyzing the costs they will save from fuel and reduced maintenance. 

As society inches closer each year to reduce its carbon footprint, Tesla’s electric vehicle industry market share will only increase. The high demand will ultimately drive down the acquisition cost, making them more accessible to society.
