 Tesla electric truck booked users to confirm that goods will be collected in 2020.


Netease Technologies News October 29, according to Electrek reports, technically speaking, Tesla Semi electric semi-trailer truck is the car manufacturer plans to launch the next model. But now subscribers say theyre told they wont receive the goods until 2020, a year after Tesla plans to go into production.

Tesla announced plans to start production in 2019 after launching the prototype electric truck and starting booking in November 2017. But at a summit at the University of Pennsylvania called Pushing America Forward: Next Generation Truck Freight Transportation, James Oleary, vice president of fleet services at NFII ndustries, a third-party logistics provider, confirmed that the company had ordered 10 Tesla electric trucks and was told it would not receive them until 2020. They are relatively consistent with their timetables, although Musk didnt talk about it on the earnings call, Oliri said.

At last weeks earnings call, Musk did say Tesla had made progress on Semi, but he didnt update the timetable. NFI is one of the most extensive companies involved in the electrification of trucks. In addition to Teslas Semi order, the company is working with Daimler to test the new electric truck eCascadia before it goes into production in 2021. In 2019, Daimler will start delivering 10 eCascadias to the NFI for transportation activities from the port of Los Angeles and Long Beach to the Inland Empire warehouse in California.

OLeary says electric trucks are important to them because their average transport distance is much shorter than other companies in the industry. He said: considering the scope of our transportation, this is very useful. The average transport distance of the trucking industry is about 640 km, and we are about 500 km. Tesla promised trucks a range of 500 to 800 kilometers, while Daimler said eCascadia had a range of about 400 kilometers.

In addition, NFI is also working with Volvo truck Corp (VolvoTrucks) to develop its own electric truck project. Orelli praised Teslas ability to attract interest in electric trucks and said: Nobody in North America talked about electric trucks until local news media reported that Tesla launched Semi. This basically leads to what we call the Tesla effect. Now, consignors will ask their operators when electric trucks will appear.

However, Oliri still expressed some concerns about Tesla Semi. He thinks the actual cost of electric trucks may be higher, and that plans for charging infrastructure remain unclear. Some analysts believe it may not be Tesla delaying Semi production, but rather NFI orders will be delivered by 2020. After all, Tesla has hundreds or even thousands of Semi orders. More worryingly, Tesla announced that Semi would start production in 2019, but has not yet identified a production site. Many speculated that Tesla might be making electric trucks at Gigafactory 1 in Nevada, but no evidence has been found yet. Even if it goes into production in 2019, Semi production is expected to be very low, and then to grow slowly, just like Model 3.
