TESLA SEMI PRICES
Tesla’s electric semi, the future-conscious company’s newly unveiled big-rig truck, will have a $150,000 base price. Tesla’s lowest-priced model is supposed to travel 483 km (300 miles) on one charge. The long-range truck will feature an 805-km (500-mile) range, priced at $180,000, according to a report by Business Insider.
This is pricier than what analysts at Morgan Stanley had initially predicted, which was that the Semi could start at $100,000. Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, said during his big Semi unveiling last week the truck would be less expensive to operate compared to traditional diesel trucks. He estimates the cost to be about $0.78 per km ($1.26 per mile) compared to $0.94 per km ($1.51 per mile) for traditional haulers.
