You can now order a Tesla semi electric truck

Tesla After a four-year wait due to limited supply of battery cells, customers are now being allowed to place their orders for semi-electric trucks.

The company missed the opportunity to be the first to bring our electric semi-trailer to market but it has been able to improve Tesla’s semi-performance capabilities.

For one, the CMT can accelerate from 0-60mph (0-96.5km / hr) in 20 seconds, a feature Tesla calls “badass”.

The Semi will also have four separate motors – which will be mounted on the rear axle and allow for speeds of 60mph (96.5km / hr) above 5% grade.

Tesla is also proud to say that the semi power consumption is less than 2kWh per mile, which is about the same as the average power used by 8 Model 3s.

Tesla boss Elon Musk says prices are not “too high.”

The “expected base price” is set at $ 150,000 for the standard-range cm and $ 180,000 for the extended-range variant, The Driven reports.

The company asks for a $ 20,000 reservation fee and interested parties are asked to deposit $ US5,000 immediately and then arrange for a cable for the rest within 10 days, plus an additional $ 20,000 for each required car.

Tesla claims that it comes at half the cost of running a diesel semi-trailer on fuel and two years to pay for the semi.

Semi is currently only available in the United States.
