Tesla semi truck may be revealed on October 26 says Musk

Tesla semi truck may be revealed on October 26 says Musk”

As it stands today, when it comes to the market of pure electric automobiles, #Elon Musk's #Tesla Inc. ranks only second behind the Franco-Japanese partnership Renault-Nissan Alliance. Not one to rest on their laurels, Tesla has since introduced the Model X crossover SUV and this year, the Model 3 mass-market sedan.

It's no secret that Tesla is working on a fully electric semi truck, which could be used on long-haul routes depending on charging station availability.

Tesla didn't show off its electric semi truck this month as originally planned, but the company isn't leaving people in the dark. At the time, he said the event would be held in September, but that has since been pushed back.

According to a tweet made by Musk, the company has "tentatively scheduled" both the unveiling and a test ride to take place in Hawthorne, California.

The electric semi truck would "deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport, while increasing safety and making it really fun to operate", he wrote previous year. The reveal date of October 23 is also tentative, meaning that should any developments come up the company could postpone it again.

The idea for an electric semi truck that would offer an alternative to diesel-powered trucks was first floated previous year in Tesla's long-term Master Plan. "There is no turning back on the road to a world of electric vehicles and sustainable energy generation and use". These vehicles, in turn, would be powered by a hybrid system of integrated solar and electric batteries. The news reported earlier Wednesday by Reuters was confirmed by CNBC.
