Tesla Semi was spotted at Giga Nevada charging on the newly installed Megacharger. While Elon Musk has assured that deliveries in 2021 are not expected due to a shortage of components required for production, all indications are that production will begin as soon as they become available.
In mid-October, it became known that Tesla was installing a Megacharger for Semi at its factory in Nevada. The construction of this completely new type of charger is now complete and trucks can be charged there. @hwfeinstein/Twitter shared photos of Semi connected to a Megacharger, which is the first of its kind.
Please don’t read too much into this. As mentioned publicly, Tesla is constrained by chip supply short-term & cell supply long-term.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) November 13, 2021
Not possible to produce additional vehicles in volume until both constraints are addressed.
