PepsiCo just pre-ordered 100 Tesla Semi electric trucks
It’s the biggest public order so far
It might still be early in Tesla Semi’s career, but the electric truck is becoming interesting for big-name companies, with PepsiCo being the latest brand to make a move acquisition-wise.
According to Reuters, PepsiCo has reserved 100 Tesla Semis in an attempt to cut down emissions and fuel expenses throughout its fleet.
The same outlet mentions that so far, 267 Tesla electric trucks have been reserved. Coming back to the main topic, PepsiCo is looking to deploy its new green rigs in support of snack foods and beverages shipments.
As you might recall, Elon Musk’s Tesla Semi promises a maximum range of 500 miles (800 km) with a full cargo behind.
However, a 300-mile version of the Tesla Semi truck is also available for a starting sticker of $150,000. The 200-mile variant starts at $180,00, but Tesla will even assemble a fancier $200,000 Founders Series Semi.
