Last week Tesla unveiled its Semi Truck in the big Tesla event. But the company didn’t disclose its price.
Yesterday, Tesla reveals the that 500-miles truck will cost $180,000 and the 300-miles truck will cost $150,000. Also, its “Founders Series” is expected to be priced around $200,000.
The diesel trucks cost around $120,000 and require tons of thousands of dollars for its maintenance each year. But Tesla claims that its semi trucks will provide more than $200,000 fuel savings alone with the lifespan of the truck.
Large transport carriers have shown interest and already have reserved their trucks such as Bison Transport, JB Hunt Transport Services, and NFI Industries. On the other hand retailers like Walmart, Meijer, and Loblaw have also pre-ordered their Semi Trucks.
