A Tesla Semi electric truck prototype was spotted doing some range tests with an almost full load of 75,000 lbs, and the test driver said that it was meeting or even “exceeding” range expectations.
When launching Tesla Semi in 2017, the automaker said that the production versions of Tesla Semi, which is a class 8 truck with a 80,000-lb capacity, will have 300-mile and 500-mile range options for $150,000 and $180,000 respectively.
However, CEO Elon Musk said that they found opportunities to extend that range during testing.
Last year, Musk said that the Tesla Semi production version will have closer to 600 miles of range.
Now a Tesla Semi prototype was spotted at a California Highway Patrol Inspection Center during range testing, and the test driver reportedly said that the electric truck prototype was “meeting or exceeding the range estimates.”
