Elon Musk’s Tesla Semi Update Means The New Battery Is Ready

79 Просмотры
It is clear that Tesla has solved its Semi battery problem. In a recent email to his employees, Elon Musk announced that the Tesla Semi will be entering volume production soon. Together with recent updates from Tesla’s battery partner in China about the rollout of a million-mile battery, it appears that the battery that can change everything for the electric car maker, and its fight for sustainability as a whole, is finally ready.

Tesmanian reports.

A recently leaked email from Elon Musk revealed that Tesla is ready to bring the Tesla Semi to volume production. "It's time to go all out and bring the Tesla Semi to volume production. It's been in limited production so far, which has allowed us to improve many aspects of the design," Musk wrote in his email. Tesla's CEO has verified the email.

Volume production for the Tesla Semi is quite a remarkable feat, and the ramifications of reaching it ripple throughout the rest of TSLA's vehicle lineup, especially those that are scheduled for manufacturing soon. In the coming months or years, Tesla and Elon Musk have either hinted or outright said it would release the Cybertruck, Roadster 2.0, and the Plaid lineup, which includes the CYBRTRK, Model S, and X.

It is no secret that the Tesla Semi has experienced delays. When the vehicle was unveiled, Elon Musk estimated that initial deliveries could begin around late 2019. This was eventually moved to sometime in 2020, and later, to around 2021. These delays attracted the usual blend of criticism from skeptics, but Musk explained that a key reason behind the Semi’s updated rollout dates is the vehicles’ batteries.

Simply put, Musk previously stated that Tesla could not produce the Semi in volume unless the company has the capability to manufacture enough cells for such a large vehicle. Based on Musk’s recent email, it appears that Tesla has overcome this challenge, and the company is now capable of ramping the production of its Class 8 truck.
