This Week In Tesla: 15 Tesla Semi’s to Be Delivered in 2021, Tesla Goes to Court to Push for Increased Emission Fines

15 Tesla Semis to be Delivered -

Pepsico recently stated that they are expecting 15 Tesla semi trucks by the end of 2021. This follows the recent release from Tesla of a video of a semi on their test track. There have also been photos taken by Tesla fans of the trucks on the highway. When the semi was unveiled in 2017, Tesla said there would be two variants, one with 300 miles of range, and one with 500. It is still unclear as to what the range variants of the production semi truck will be, but the new 4680 battery cells will enable the car to have great performance and range. Also, the prices for the two versions are $150,000 and $180,000, which is impressive as most semi trucks are in the price range of $130,000-200,000, and they do not qualify for tax incentives. 

Tesla Goes to Court to Push for Increased Emission Fines -

The Obama administration passed legislation that would fine automakers for not complying with emissions standards, but this was delayed during Trump’s presidency. In February 2021, many environmental organizations along with several states sued the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for not delaying the adoption of the fines. Tesla is joining them in a pursuit to give other automakers more of an incentive, because although its bad for business, it puts them closer to their ultimate goal; “to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport by bringing compelling mass-market electric cars to market as soon as possible.”
