Tesla recently updated its website and revealed how much the company's new Tesla Semi will cost prospective buyers, noting that a version with 300 miles of range will start at $150,000 with a 500 mille model starting at $200,000. Of course, the cash-strapped company is also offering a limited-edition Founders Series model that will cost $200,000. Notably, the figures above are "expected prices" which is to say that they may be subject to change later on down the line.
That notwithstanding, the Tesla Semi is competitively priced given that a standard semi-truck can cost anywhere from $100,000 to $150,000. That aside, the main allure of the Tesla Semi is Tesla's claim that it will be more economical than your typical diesel truck on day one.
