Tesla is finally deciding to bring their long-awaited Tesla semi-truck into the public audience in late 2021. During the conference call following Teslas Q2 2020 financial results, the team managing tesla automotive mentioned briefly that the new truck was going to be built in Austin.
Elon Musk said, “We’re going to be doing a major factory there. And it’s also where we will be doing Cybetruck there, the Tesla semi program...” This is exciting news as it’s the first time Tesla announces a location for the truck. Tesla’s main production resource is to be a direct line to consumers and deal with them immediately, rather than with third-party occupants and wholesale dealers.
