    A little over a month after unveiling his semi-trailer truck, all-electric, Tesla received an order of 125 vehicles, the most important one to this day.

    It is the delivery company american United Parcel Service (UPS), which is at the origin of this important request. Considering the base price of US$ 150,000 Tesla Semi, it can be concluded that it is a transaction of at least$ 18.7 Million, or the equivalent of$ 24 MILLION CAD.

    Promising a range of 483 kilometers, Tesla intends to begin production of his semi-trailer truck as soon as 2019. A version range higher than 800 kilometres should also be proposed.

    In addition to its fully electric engine, Tesla believes that the Semi will provide performance far superior to those of truck diesel plying our roads. The company’s CEO, Elon Musk, also ensures that the costs of maintenance and operation will be less than for a truck diesel engine.

    In addition to UPS, PepsiCo has also made a chat a few days ago by placing an order for 100 trucks to the manufacturer in california. With us, the quebec-based company Fuel has also been captivated by the electric truck and has already ordered four copies.
