Tesla Inc. said the expected price for its all-electric Class 8 truck will range from $150,000 to $200,000.
The Tesla Semi, which is powered by a battery pack and four independent electric motors on the drive axles, will offer a range of 300 or 500 miles on a single charge, according to the company.
The expected base price for a tractor with a 300-mile range will be $150,000, while the anticipated base price for the version with a 500-mile range will be $180,000, Tesla revealed on its website.
The base reservation for the vehicle, which is scheduled to enter production in 2019, is listed at $20,000.
The company also lists a $200,000 upfront price tag for a “founders series” edition of the truck.
Tesla said its Semi will provide $200,000 or more in fuel savings and a pay-back period of two years.
The truck consumes less than 2 kilowatt hours of energy per mile, according to the company.
Co-founder and CEO Elon Musk introduced the vehicle at a Nov. 16 unveiling in Hawthorne, Calif.
