Tesla Truck's Big Unveil Rescheduled
Tesla's all-electric semi truck has been kept a mistery for some time and while its big reveal was set in September, then "tentatively" planned on the 26th of October, but is now planned on the 16th of November. CEO Elon Musk tweeted the revised date, explaining that by they were currently working on diverting resources to fix Model 3 bottlenecks and increase battery production for Puerto Rico & other hurrican affected areas.
"This truck will be the first autonomous electric truck by Tesla."

Despite the small amount of information given by Tesla, the truck is expected to have a range of 200 to 300 miles, making it more sustainable for inner-city transport than long-distance haulage. The event will fill in the knowledge gaps, including whether or not it includes autonomous driving technology. Musk said: "We believe the Tesla Semi will deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport, while increasing safety and making it really fun to operate.”
Yet due to recent events this launch was delayed by three weeks. Tesla wishes to bring assistance to recently affected areas by the hurricanes, such as Puerto Rico. Tesla wishes to rebuild Puerto Rico’s electric system after the devastation of Hurricane Maria, which left just 10 percent of the island with power.
