Tesla launch delayed again

The launch date for the highly anticipated Tesla Semi has been pushed back another month and is now set for November.

According to Tesla CEO, Elon Musk's twitter announcement, the electric technology company's attention has been diverted away from the heavy vehicle project to commit more resources to Model 3 bottlenecks, and to increase battery production for hurricane-affected Puerto Rico.

Musk further confirmed in a reply to a citizen twitter account that by 'Model 3 bottlenecks', he means 'speeding up production processes'.

He also tweeted, "Semi specs are better than anything I've seen reported so far. Semi eng/design [sic] team work is aces, but other needs are greater right now."
