Walmart Canada triples its Tesla Semi order as part of serious sustainability push

By Pulltarps Mfg | October 8, 2020

Walmart Canada has announced that it is more than tripling its orders for the Tesla Semi, with the company now reserving a total of 130 units of the upcoming all-electric trucks. The update comes on the heels of Walmart’s announcement about its global goal to hit zero emissions by 2040, which were outlined at Climate Week earlier this month.

The company’s 130 Tesla Semi reservations currently stand as one of the largest orders of electrified long-haulers in Canada. Zero-emissions vehicles play a huge part in the company’s sustainability goals, with Walmart Canada looking to convert 20% of its existing fleet to electric power by the end of 2022. This is a key step towards the company’s broader goal of using 100% alternative power for its fleet by 2028.
