Tesla Semi production begins; deliveries to start in December

Musk has confirmed that it will offer 500 miles (805 km) of range on a single charge.

Elon Musk has announced the start of production of the Tesla Semi.

Tesla's all-electric truck was first unveiled back in 2017 and wasn't expected to go into production until 2023. However, Musk has now announced the truck has entered production, with deliveries of the same slated to begin by year-end. He also confirmed that Pepsi will receive the first Tesla Semi on December 1, 2022.

The Tesla Semi is being produced in Nevada, close to the company's Gigafactory. Reports state that the company initially had a capacity to produce 5 electric trucks per week. However, Tesla will be increasing the volume in the near future. While the complete details of the production version of the electric truck are still scarce, Musk has confirmed that it will offer 500 miles (805 km) of range on a single charge.

PepsiCo is said to have ordered 100 Tesla Semi electric trucks to be added to its fleet - one of the biggest orders at the time of its launch in 2017.
