Tesla boss Elon Musk ‘looking forward’ to production of electric Semi

News and updates from Tesla‘s much-hyped all-electric Semi program have all but dried up since the truck’s official announcement in late 2017, but over the weekend Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted a pic of the truck in action – kind of.

The picture, posted Saturday to Musk’s personal Twitter account, shows the Semi hitched to a small car hauler loaded with four of the company’s electric Model 3 sedans. Tesla notified shareholders and the Securities and Exchange Commission earlier this month that in exchange for nearly 50,000 shares of Tesla stock – a deal worth nearly $14 million – the company acquired portions of Central Valley Auto Transport’s car-hauling fleet. But those trucks are conventional diesel-powered units. Story by Overdrive Staff / www.overdriveonline.com.
