Tesla has received reservations for their electric Semi trucks from PepsiCo and Anheuser-Busch (the manufacturer of Budweiser beverages), shortly after the first iteration of it was launched. PepsiCo reserved 100 of them, to be exact.
The Tesla Semi trucks won’t be delivered for another two years, as they are still in the pre-production stage. Each reservation entails a $20,000 deposit. Walmart and DHL also ordered some for testing, along with a number of other companies, according to Jalopnik.
With an energy consumption of 2 kWh/mile, a massive drop in semi truck emissions would be possible, provided that other manufacturers follow. The expected base price for the 500-mile model is $180,000.
