First Consumer Deliveries Began in 2021

The Tesla Semi started its first deliveries to consumers in 2021, initially only providing the trucks to one customer: PepsiCo. Since then, Tesla has grown the number of electric semis in its test fleet to close to 100 vehicles, according to Lars Moravy, Tesla's Vice President of Vehicle Engineering.

Conservative Ramp Strategy Employed

Moravy made the comments regarding the expanded Tesla Semi fleet during a recent appearance alongside Tesla Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen on Jay Leno's Garage. He explained that Tesla has been working closely with PepsiCo over the past year to test the semis' durability and ensure the vehicles are ready for mass production, which he stated could begin sometime in 2023.

"We have close to 100 Semis on our fleet now, and they're doing that run and we're working with Pepsi as well to just understand the durability and get it right so we can go into volume production next year," said Moravy.

Significant Environmental Impact Expected

While not a high-volume consumer vehicle, the Tesla Semi has the potential to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation industry. As CEO Elon Musk has pointed out, heavy-duty trucks make up just 1% of vehicles in the U.S. but produce nearly 20% of total automotive emissions.

The transition of Class 8 trucks to electric drivetrains could therefore provide meaningful environmental benefits. With its growing test fleet, Tesla is working to ensure its Semi paves the way for this transition.
