How Much Does It Cost To Fill Up A Tesla Semi?

At $150, the Tesla Semi is already better at cost of operations per mile than

the diesel trucks dominating the trucking industry today.

Cost means the Tesla Semi would need to log more than a million miles before

it would really begin saving money compared with the diesel status quo.

By comparison, a Tesla Semi would use under 2kWh of electricity per mile,

which is roughly 26cents, based on average electricity costs in the US.

Tesla estimates that their Semi-Trucks over a million miles of driving will

net owners $200k in savings, which is quite nice, but what is

exciting here is that just fuel savings alone will save them more than 60% on the first day.

Estimates by most semi-truck EV manufacturers are in the 2 - 2.5kWh/mile range,

and with current electric prices ranging between $0.1-$0.20/KWh,

the EV truck could be as low as $0.50/mile cheaper to operate.
