According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the developers confirmed in a real experiment that the Semi electric truck can travel 800 km on a single charge in real conditions.

In early October, it was revealed that Tesla had finally begun production of its Semi electric truck and planned to start shipping it to Pepsi as early as December 1, 2022. The soft drink company ordered 100 electric vehicles in December 2017, just a month after Tesla first introduced the world to his new brainchild.

Tesla promises that the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 96 km/h in 20 seconds even when “fully loaded” and maintain “the same speed as on the highway, even on steep climbs.” Elon Musk also promises that you can charge your battery up to 70% in just 30 minutes.

Tesla Semi was first introduced in 2017, and the release of the serial version was postponed several times. Tesla offered a slight update to the production version last summer, but the automaker is expected to release more details, including pricing and specification details.

Tesla has already confirmed that it is going to hold an event dedicated to deliveries of the first Tesla Semi on December 1st.

“Most people in the investment community (including large holders) that I speak to didn’t believe it’s possible to make a 500-mile, fully loaded Class 8 truck,” he said on Twitter.

Tesla has had many critics and skeptics alike agree that it would never succeed. A great example is the Tesla Model 3, when many thought Tesla would never bring the vehicle to mass production.

As for the Tesla Semi, it was unveiled in 2017 and PepsiCo will be the first customer to take deliveries on December 1, 2022.

In 2020, Bill Gates wrote a blog post explaining why battery-operated Class 8 trucks wouldn’t work.

“The problem is that batteries are big and heavy. The more weight you’re trying to move, the more batteries you need to power the vehicle. But the more batteries you use, the more weight you add—and the more power you need. Even with big breakthroughs in battery technology, electric vehicles will probably never be a practical solution for things like 18-wheelers, cargo ships, and passenger jets. Electricity works when you need to cover short distances, but we need a different solution for heavy, long-haul vehicles.”

Gates said that he was optimistic about biofuels but that it was still too early to consider replacing fossil fuels with them. Gates was one of many critics who shared opinions as to why the Tesla Semi and all-electric trucks wouldn’t work.

On December 1, the skeptics will be once again proven wrong when PepsiCo takes delivery of its order of Tesla Semis. Tesla is inviting a limited number of retail investors to the event, which will take place at Gigafactory Nevada.
