Tesla is ready to start production of Semi trucks, but there are not enough batteries for them yet



Tesla Semi electric truck is ready for serial production. However, production does not start because there are not enough 4680 battery cells for that. According to Tesla director Elon Musk, each truck needs five times more cells than a passenger car. However, a truck cannot be sold for five times more, so while there are not enough batteries to produce both passenger cars and trucks, the choice of the manufacturer is obvious.

The source recalls: introducing the Tesla Semi in 2017, the manufacturer promised that the serial versions of this truck will be offered with a margin of autonomy of 480 and 800 km at a price of $ 150,000 and $ 180,000, respectively. Musk later boasted that during testing, the developers found an opportunity to increase the mileage on a single charge to 960 km.

In 2019, the company announced that the start of sales is scheduled for the second half of 2020, but in the spring of last year, the deadline was pushed back to 2021.
