How Does The
Tesla Semi Truck
A Two-Year Payback Period?
The fully electric truck might seem pricey, but company officials say
that truck can deliver more than
$200,000 in fuel savings with two years to pay off.
Teslas website claims that the fuel savings are more than $200,000,
making Teslas higher up-front cost
worthwhile in the life of the vehicle.
Teslas also claims the Semi is 2.5 times cheaper to fill up when compared with diesel trucks
and could deliver fuel savings of $200,000 in the first three years of ownership.
operators will save about $200,000 in three years
as the cost per
mile is 2.5 times cheaper
with electric power.
Tesla could save $50,000 per year on fuel
costs if the SEmi truck drives between
100,000 miles per year.
Even the higher
Tesla Semi price, expected to start at $180,000, becomes
a moot point considering
that EVs require much less maintenance during their lifespan. But there is more going on than just that.
