Tesla big rig customers look to build charging stations

Tesla’s Semi has been on a roll as several major corporations have placed big orders for its all-electric the big rig. Tesla is now working with three corporations to build battery-charging stations at some logistical facilities. These companies are Anheuser-Busch, PepsiCo, and UPS have pledged to buy hundreds of these all-electric trucks. Anheuser-Busch and UPS are both interested in building their own charging facilities, while PepsiCo is looking to build facilities that will allow for cost-sharing with other companies.

Meanwhile, Tesla is also planning to develop its own truck charging station networks.

This news comes as Tesla is plagued with Model 3 delivery delays, though there is hope to ramp up production. Tesla plans to launch their Semi in 2019. Who knows if they meet this launch year, but this has not stopped dozens of companies from ordering the electric Semi with hopes of driving a greener more sustainable future.
