Electric truck Tesla Semi introduced a year ago, this is the first truck of this type developed by Tesla. Currently, he actively travels to the states of the country, the last time he was noticed in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Tesla Electric Semi is a long-distance electric truck. A series of fresh photos was shared in Instagram by a woman, presumably working in Tesla. Pictures show not only a futuristic exterior, but a driver’s space. In the commentary to the post she wrote that it was in the service center.

One foreign site – Electrek – tracks the movement of the truck across the states of America. Before that, he was seen in Colorado, Illinois, Arkansas and Iowa. This route, obviously, should demonstrate the range of the electric vehicle. The truck is based in Nevada, but it is clearly testing routes much further from its home base.

The official website of the manufacturer says that the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in five seconds and has a range of 800 km on one charge. The expected price for the basic equipment is $ 150,000.

In addition, this week Walmart (an American company that manages the world’s largest wholesale and retail trade network) ordered another 30 trucks to its fleet. In 2017, the company was the first to issue an order for electric vehicles after the premiere. Then it was ordered 15 copies.

It is assumed that the car will begin to produce in 2019, and it will be available for sale only in 2020.

Meanwhile, the Tesla Model 3 sedan outperformed its sales of electric cars. Thus, the model remains the most agitating in its segment.
