Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk said the electric automaker is tentatively set to unveil its scheduled semi-truck in October, about a month behind Musk had previously estimated.
“Tesla Semi truck reveal and evaluate ride tentatively set for Oct 26th in Hawthorne,” Musk stated in a tweet on Wednesday.
The entrepreneur has enticed the trucking market with the possibility of a battery-powered durable vehicle that can take on traditional diesels, which can travel approximately 1,000 miles on a single tank of fuel.
Tesla’s preparations for new electric vehicles consisting of an industrial truck called the Tesla Semi were revealed in 2016 and in April Musk said the release of the semi-truck was arranged for September.
Tesla has been making progress in self-driving technology and executing it in an electric truck could possibly move it forward in an extremely competitive area of industrial transport also being pursued by Uber Technologies and Alphabet Inc’s Waymo.
It was reported in August that Tesla was establishing a long-haul, electric semi-truck that might drive itself and relocate “platoons” that followed a lead vehicle, as per an email discussion of potential road tests between the auto companies and the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles, according to Reuters.
Tesla’s electric big-rig truck may have a working series of 200 to 300 miles to take on with more traditional diesels.
