Tesla Semi: Marktart only in 2022 – three years later than planned

Tesla Semi: Marktart only in 2022 - three years later than planned-marktart

As part of the announcement of the financial results of the second quarter 2021 by Tesla, it became known that its electric truck Tesla Semi will probably come to the road only 2022. This delays the start of the e-truck, which could revolutionize the transport industry again.

After this this 2017 presented and announced for 2019, there was always shifts in the schedule. Already in June 2019, we had to report by a relevant delivery shift. At that time it was said, “What concerns the Tesla Semi, the automaker has recently confirmed that the production of the electric semi truck has moved to the next year after it was planned for 2019. Musk became a little more concrete and announced that you are looking forward to the Tesla Semi against “end 2020” in production.”Thus, it was already foreseeable that the Tesla semi will come to the street later than planned. Most recently, it was considered that he starts in the second half 2021 in the series.

The shift of the E-truck commented Tesla to focus on other projects currently on other projects. Among other things, Giga Berlin GO-LIVE also plays a crucial role in which “ongoing challenges associated with the supply chain and regional authorizations” makes. To the Wool Tesla initially launch the production of Model Y in Germany and the US, as well as the development and series maturity of the 4680 cells. Officially the whole thing is commented as follows:

“We Believe We Remain On Track To Build Our First Model Y Vehicles in Berlin and Austin in 2021. The Pace Of The Resuppective Production Ramps Will Be Influenced By The Successful Introduction Of Many New Product And Manufacturing Technologies, Ongoing Supply Chain Related Challenges And Regional Permissioning. To Better Focus On Thesis Factories, And Due To The Limited Availability Of Battery Cells And Global Supply Chain Challenges, We Have Shifted The Launch Of The Semi Truck Program to 2022.”

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, gave some time ago to understand that the lack of / difficult supply by batteries can lead to problems in the manufacturing process. A highly scaling of production was not foreseeable at this time. For 2022, the situation would improve well.

  1. The semi-truck becomes an interesting challenge for logistician and charging infrastructure.
    For Tesla, in addition to the truck, the construction of the appropriate charging infrastructure must be the most important task.
    Without this nothing runs and at the car loaders this will only work hard.
    I’m curious about how this is implemented.
    The Berlin work was also planned with pure semi-truck logistics, for which EM probably also received no permission from the throaters.

  2. If you were braked by the German authorities in Berlin and the My can not produce from mid-21, then they could use the batteries not used here for Semi Trucks, or?
    Or is it more likely that Tesla does not get its own battery production, has not ordered too little batteries, and that’s why you’re so glad that you can push the delay in Berlin others into the shoes. They did not have batteries for the MY by Berlin. Exactly about that should start with the new input – and contrary to the original input – Auto and battery production at the same time.

  3. Sticking point is the battery price, Otherwise, no cheaper Semi truck can be offered for sufficient batteries and therefore it is the freight forwarding, in addition to the low charging (tank) and maintenance costs.

    The favorable price due to favorable batteries as well as the lower current and maintenance costs are the advantages of purely battery electric truck over the fuel cell trucks.

    H2 trucks can not be so strong benefit from favorable batteries because they have smaller batteries and also struggle with sensitive fuel cell technology and compromises at H2 tanks.

    The large and so far expensive battery with purely battery electric trucks, a popular argument for H2 trucks, becomes cheaper and thus to the disadvantage for H2 in vehicles – How times change.

  4. A model 3 battery weighs 500 kg to produce a truck with 800 km range, it requires 20T battery. This vehicle will never significantly affect the market.

  5. Apart from all previous contributions regarding battery or loading infrastructure, the semi is as he was now developed first for Europe.
    The configuration of the traction machine is fully aligned with USA. Double drive axles are not applied here in normal long-distance traffic and also the length makes it to be operated with the currently used semi-trailers. Since, EM will probably have to apply for an EU law change.

    In addition, there is still a service network in Logistics 24/7 throughout Europe, otherwise it does not work if this is not available will not produce this truck.

    But to close positively, it happens at least something in the otherwise pretty conservative logistics industry.
