Tesla Semi electric truck delayed until 2021

Tesla has announced another delay for its heavy-duty freight offering – the Semi – pushing first deliveries of the model back to 2021. Mentioned in Tesla’s first quarterly report of 2020 – which saw the brand post its third consecutive quarter-year of profit despite COVID-19 shutdowns – the electric vehicle specialist advised “we are shifting our first Tesla Semi deliveries to 2021.” This means the model’s delivery has now been pushed back two years from original claims of 2019 production.
