The Tesla electric truck Semi, described as the “worst”in history, jumps again. We learned from Tesla officials that its all-electric semi-trailer, The Semi, will again delay delivery dates until 2021. Tesla Semi is understood to be launched in 2017 and is scheduled to go into production and deliver to the market in 2019.
But in its third-quarter 2019 brand report, Tesla announced plans to produce a limited number of Semis by 2020.
The announcement that Semi’s delivery date will be extended to 2021 also means that Semi will be delivered about two years later than originally planned.
It is understood that, unlike conventional trucks, Semi sets the battery pack just below the tow head, with a four-wheeled independent motor design, and the on-board sensor sits to detect the body status and transmit the corresponding positive or negative torque to each wheel, while also individually controlling each brake.
In terms of power, Tesla officials say the Semi has a 0-96km/h acceleration time of just 5 seconds at the time of empty load, and a 0-96km/h acceleration time of 20 seconds at a load of 36 tons.
There are two versions of the range, with a range of 300 miles (about 483 km) for a $150,000 ($1.06 million) model and 500 miles (805 km) for a $180,000 ($1.27 million) model. At the same time, the car also supports fast charging mode, charging 30 minutes can have 644Km range.
Musk also said the company ran a longer range of 600 miles (966km) during testing the Semi.
