Tesla CEO Elon Musk has claimed that the company’s Semi truck will ship this year with 500 miles of range.
The news comes three years after the truck was supposed to ship, with the Semi having been announced in 2017 with an expected release date of 2019.
In a tweet, Musk said that the company intends to be able to begin mass shipping of the Semi this year, going on to say that we should expect the hotly anticipated Cybertruck to finally ship next year.
Both electric vehicles have been heavily delayed during the COVID-19 pandemic, with parts shortages also hitting the company’s plans.
It’s notable that Musk keeps using the term ‘shipping’ for its Semi truck without going into any kind of detail as to what that means. It’s expected that he means that the truck will begin shipping to customers this year, but that’s only an assumption at this point. Electrek suggests that PepsiCo is one of the companies that are likely to be at the front of the queue for early arrivals.

Tesla might have had to deal with huge delays on the Semi and Cybertruck, but it’s far from the only company struggling to get vehicles into the hands of those wanting to buy them. Traditional carmakers like Ford have also found it almost impossible to meet demand for its electric cars.
