Tesla targets 50000 Semi units earlier in 2024. The “early production” phase of the Tesla Semi has begun at the Reno facility in Nevada, with the first completed trucks being sent to Pepsi. Starting in December, Tesla is anticipated to begin producing a steady stream of class 8 electric trucks, with annual production reaching at least 50,000 units by 2024.

The company’s truck production now goes to the North American market. Still, they plan to open additional truck plants in Europe and Asia to provide locally produced cars in other regions. Initially, Semi will ship with a range of 500 miles (when fully loaded), but a reduced-range variant with a maximum of 300 miles will follow.

For a truck that weighs 82,000 pounds (37,195 kilograms), being able to go 500 miles (800 kilometres) on electricity is a significant accomplishment. There is no official word on battery capacity from Tesla, but estimates place it at 1 MWh (1,000 kWh). A close examination of the data casts serious doubt on the integrity of the 50,000 annual trucks by 2024 claim.

By 2024, Tesla is projected to increase its Nevada battery manufacturing capacity from the current 39 GWh to 43 GWh. That output accounts for the whole annual output in the United States of Model 3, Model Y, Model X, and Model S. To achieve Semi’s promised output level would need 50 GWh of batteries.

Interestingly, if Tesla does build 50,000 trucks in 2024, it will overtake International Truck and Engine Corporation as the second biggest producer of Class 8 vehicles in the United States. With 71,000 trucks, it would outsell Kenworth and fall just behind Freightliner (2020). Is that the case? We are, after all, discussing Tesla, and everyone is familiar with his backstory.

While this is true, we are also aware of the numerous unrealized promises that have been made along the road, including the fact that many people are still waiting for the Cybertruck. Tesla, although often late, always delivers on its promises and is a significant player in the EV revolution.

The 300-mile vehicle begins at $150,000, and the 500-mile truck sells for $180,000, and the Founders Edition for $200,000. Deliveries of Semi begin in December. The new federal EV tax credit of $40,000 makes the electric truck relatively inexpensive, and many businesses and operators may be enticed to convert if the charging infrastructure is in place. Both variants of the Tesla Semi qualify for the incentive.
