Tesla has announced the official launch date for its first electric semi trucks, complete with an event at its Nevada factory. 

Tesla announced on Tuesday, November 14th, that it will hold a “delivery event” at its Nevada location on December 1st – the same day the company plans to deliver the first electric semi trucks to PepsiCo. It is still unclear whether any other companies will receive their semi truck orders on December 1st. 

Tesla has been promising the production of these electric semi trucks since 2019. Now, with the delivery date officially announced, Tesla also says it is aiming to produce at least 100 of the electric semi trucks before the end of 2022 – this information comes from Robin Denholm, who released the information during a Tesla CEO compensation trial earlier this week, reported Electrek.

Tesla currently has a goal to produce 50,000 electric semi trucks per year by 2024.
