A video appeared on the Internet, in which it is shown for the first time how electric vehicles of Tesla Semi are being tested together with trailers. The cars were seen during the tests on the way from the Gigafabrika facility in Nevada to the car factory in Fremont, Gigafactory.
According to Eletrek, trucks delivered battery kits that are manufactured at the Gigafactory plant in Nevada.
The first prototype of the Semi electric wagon was shown in November 2017. According to unofficial data, the serial model will be equipped with four units, the return of which is not yet specified. Without cargo, the wagon can accelerate from a place to 100 km / h in five seconds, and with a trailer weighing 40 tons – in 20 seconds.
The serial version of Tesla Semi will make its debut next year. In the standard version, the novelty will be able to pass without recharging the batteries approximately 500 km, and in the top – up to 800 kilometers. Prices for an electric truck will vary from 150 to 180 thousand dollars.
