Tesla truck embarking on their first-ever delivery run. The ride, which involves transporting battery packs between two Tesla facilities, covers a round-trip distance of just under 500 miles, so it could complete the trip on a single charge.
Tesla is expected to continue its Tesla Semi test program over the rest of the year ahead of the planned start of production. Tesla is aiming to sell the truck to shipping firms starting in 2019.
The truck with the 500-mile range is expected to cost from $180,000, while a 300-mile model will start at $150,000. There’ll also be a limited edition “Founders Series” — a thousand will be produced — starting at around $200,000 each.
