Elon Musk’s brand new all-electric Tesla Semi
November 27, 2017 at 5:52 pm #17010
Tesla’s big rig comes with a big up-front price.
The electric automaker has revealed that its new Semi starts at $150,000 for a model with a 300-mile range and $180,000 for a 500-mile version with a larger battery pack.
The diesel trucks it will compete against when it hits the highway no earlier than 2019 go for approximately $100,000-$125,000 each, but Tesla claims its Semi will cost 20 percent less to own and operate. This is thanks in part to the low-cost charges it will provide at a network of “megachargers” and expected lower maintenance costs for its electric powertrain.
