Tesla Semi launch delayed

The highly anticipated launch of the Tesla semi truck has been pushed back to October, a month later than previously confirmed by CEO, Elon Musk.

The new launch date is "tentatively scheduled" for 26 October in Hawthorne, California, Musk tweeted.

Musk first disclosed his plans for a commercial vehicle in July 2016, in his blog entitled “Master Plan – Part Deux,” posted on the Tesla website.

The announcement sent shockwaves through the industry and was followed by a number of other heavy-duty electric truck announcements, including from Nikola, and more recently from global engine manufacturer Cummins.
