Tesla is now allowing customers to place their orders for its Semi electric truck after the four-year wait due to battery cell supply constraints.
The company missed the opportunity to become the first to offer we electric semi-trailer to hit the market but its been able to better the Tesla Semi’d performance capabilities.
The company asks for a $20,000 reservation fee and those interested are asked to deposit $US5,000 immediately and then arrange a wire for the remainder within 10 days, as well as another $20,000 for each vehicle required.
Tesla claims that it comes at half the costs of running a diesel semi-trailer on fuel and the payback time for the Semi is two years.
The Semi is only available in the US for now.
