Tesla Semi Truck (which can be translated as a semi-truck), delayed countless times, has begun production, and the company will begin deliveries from December 1, Elon Musk said on Twitter.
When the automaker introduced the Tesla Semi in 2017, it hoped to begin production of these electric trucks in 2019.. Although it is clear that this did not happen. Elon Musk told employees via email in early 2020 that the vehicle was already in limited production.
However, in April of that year, the automaker announced on its income statement that production truck once again postponed to 2021. That is a new delay, and there were already three of them in just three years.
Unfortunately, 2021 wasn’t the year of the Semi either. Tesla notified shareholders in another telephonic call that deliveries will be delayed until 2022 due to shortages global supply chain affecting technology and the automotive industry, as well as the limited manufacturing capacity of the 4680 type automotive batteries at the time.

The Tesla truck that wants to revolutionize trucking
Elon Musk did not directly say that the problems with the lack of components for the electric truck were eliminated. But if you have started building cars and there is already an expected delivery date.
Tesla must have at least enough parts to build the first trucks for its first customer: The first batch of Semi Trucks will be delivered to Pepsi, which ordered 100 trucks from the company back in December 2017.
And in May of this year, the automaker opened bookings to more customers in exchange for a $20,000 deposit. A Tesla semi trailer costs between $150,000 and $180,000, depending on range, and can go up to 500 miles on a single charge.. It seems that this is not enough, Elon Musk.
