What Does A Tesla Semi Truck Cost?

On its website, Teslas  Semi Electric Truck, the company estimated the costs for the 300-mile

and 500-mile variants at $150,000 and $180,000, respectively.

With a price tag of $150, Tesla's Semi is already more cost-effective per mile

than the diesel trucks that now rule the trucking sector.

The majority of electric semi-truck manufacturers estimate

 that they use between 2 and 2.5 kilowatt hours (KWh) per mile.

With current electricity costs in the $0.11 to $0.20/KWh range,

the electric vehicle may cost as little as $0.50 less per mile to operate.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, believes that while charging at the megacharger,

 where Tesla will guarantee the 7C/kWh pricing, the Tesla Semi will be $20/mile (12/km) less expensive to run than a diesel truck (in the US).

Elon Musk informed analysts and investors that production of his first

electric Semi will scale up through 2023, and that if all goes according to plan,

 Tesla may deliver 50,000 units annually to clients in North America by 2024.
