Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the company will unveil its first electric big-rig truck at a public demonstration on October 26, about a month later than originally planned.
Musk didn’t share any new details about the vehicle, but several of its features have already been reported in the media.
The new Tesla Semi will be all-electric, with an expected range of 200 to 300 miles, which is consistent with the battery technology available today.
That would make the vehicle suited for regional hauls, which make up about 30% of trucking trips in the US.
