Tesla begins shipping Tesla Semi electric trucks to its customers
The first all-electric Class 8 Tesla Semi trucks appeared in Arizona and Kentucky.
Last month, Elon Musk announced the start of Tesla Semi sales towards the end of the year. He did not specify a timeline, but since social media users have begun to notice the first electric trucks in the bodies of other trucks, it may happen sooner.
Tesla has said it would be its own first Tesla Semi customer.
The company plans to use the truck in its own operations to cut fuel costs.
The automaker is believed to have thousands of orders for electric trucks, with several large companies including Walmart and PepsiCo placing large orders.
The company has never reported its production capability, but it is expected to be in the tens of thousands of trucks per year.
Tesla is now accepting orders with deposits for up to $20,000 per truck.
Electric Tesla Semi was introduced back in 2017. At the time, it was planned that the tracks would appear in 2019. The vehicle was later expected to enter production until 2023.
