During the presentation of an electric Tesla truck Semi in 2016 Elon Musk has called the estimated date of the beginning of its production — the end of 2019. Since then this date has not changed, and some people began to assume that the company really manages to the planned date. It turned out that no President, automotive market, Tesla Jerome Guillen announced that they will start building trucks until next year. However, he noted that they are very pleased with them and intend to bring them to perfect state.
Where it will assemble electric trucks is still unknown. Jerome only mentioned that the drivetrain and batteries will be produced at plant 1 Gigafactory in Nevada. Currently they are busy with testing of the tractor at maximum load, and on the basis of their results, make changes to the design. Probably, the postponement of the start of production associated with these processes.
That truck perfectly cope with their tasks, there is little doubt. They have repeatedly been seen on the roads of California and recorded by eyewitnesses on video. One of them proved that the truck is quite easy to accelerate to 100 kilometers per hour, and it sometimes can’t keep up with even cars like the Tesla Model S and Chevrolet Volt.
The company announced the postponement of the start of production quickly enough, because some companies have already pre-ordered and still remained in the dark. If the manufacturer was silent and then, customers could lose money, and wait for the delivery of their trucks for nothing. Earlier, Elon Musk had intended to make 100,000 trucks a year.
