Tesla Semi to Deliver Beer: Budweiser Orders 40 Electric Trucks

Budweiser beer maker Anheuser-Busch has reserved 40 of Tesla's all-electric Semi trucks as it seeks to reduce fuel costs and vehicle emissions. It was likely the largest publicly announced order Tesla has received for its electric trucks, which are scheduled to be in production by 2019.

The company said in a blog post that the order is part of a commitment to lower its carbon footprint by 30% by 2025. That’s likely a helpful timeline for Tesla, given that it doesn’t plan to deliver the first of its trucks to customers until 2019, and is still working on ironing out production bottlenecks at its Gigafactory production facility in Reno, Nevada.
