Tesla Semi demand shows no signs of slowing down
Nearly a year after Tesla introduced the Tesla Semi to the world, demand for Tesla's all-electric semi-truck shows no signs of slowing down. Less than four weeks after the unveiling, Tesla was already fielding pre-orders from a range of Fortune 500 companies, including UPS which put in an order for 125 units. Since then, Tesla Semi pre-orders have continued to roll in, with the Financial Post reporting that Walmart recently placed an order for 30 additional vehicles, on top of the 10 they already reserved late last year.
The move comes as Walmart aims to reduce its overall carbon footprint. Indeed, Walmart is aiming to utilize electric vehicles exclusively within the next 10 years. Before then, 20% of Walmart's Canadian fleet may be comprised of electric vehicles within the next few years.
