Another Big Tesla Semi Truck Order from Pride Group Enterprises

Pride Group Enterprises is a transport and equipment-leasing company based in North America. Recently, the company reserved another 150 units of the Tesla Semi Truck, the all-electric battery powered class 8 semi-truck, which was unveiled on November 2017 in Los Angeles.

"With support from one of our long-term financial partners, Hitachi Capital, we are very excited to bring this innovative product to our strong customer base, helping forge a new path in clean transportation. We believe that electrification is the way of the future as we work together across multiple industries to reduce our carbon footprint," said Sam Johal, CEO of Pride Group Enterprises. And now with the new order, the company has the option to increase to 500 units of the Tesla Semi Truck
