When Tesla debuted its electric Semi tractor in late 2017, the company set a production target of 2019.
After posting first quarter financial losses of more than $700 million Wednesday, the company says it now plans to kickstart production of its Class 8 in 2020.
“Next year we will start production,” says Tesla Automotive President Jerome Guillen. “We are very happy with driving the trucks extensively with, I think, so far quite amazing success.”
The company has used its Semi to deliver some of its Model 3 sedans and Tesla CEO Elon Musk says “the prototypes are working amazingly well.”
