Tesla Semi orders increase to 140 units in total
Sysco, one of the world’s largest food deliverers and a brewery order a total of 90 electric trucks. They join Walmart and DHL in trusting Elon Musk almost blindly, who has now received 140 orders in total.
Not even a month after its launch, the run on Tesla’s Semi is accelerating as two large orders reach the EV maker in Fremont. Sysco, a global food delivery company ordered no less than 50 trucks that start at 150,000 dollars each. Brewery Anheuser-Busch is similarly hopeful and reserved 40 units and together, the two orders amount to around 15 million dollars.
The companies are not alone in their advance on trust in Elon Musk, who so far has only shown one Semi prototype accompanied by the promise to start production by 2019. Still, a range of 800 kilometres set it far apart from a competition that in itself is as good as inexistent in the heavy electric vehicle market to date.
Thus Sysco and Anheuser-Busch join the club of reservation holders alongside Walmart and Canadian Loblabs as well as DHL Supply Chain in the Americas. According to the electrive count, Tesla has now received a total of 140 reservations at 5,000 dollars each from the above mentioned companies.
