In the wake of disclosing its all-electric semi-trucks a month ago, Tesla Inc. (TSLA) has gotten a surge in pre-orders from U.S. organizations.
Joined Parcel Service Inc. (UPS), PepsiCo, Inc. (Get up and go), Wal-Mart (WMT), Anheuser-Busch (BUD) and other truck armada proprietors have held several the Tesla electric big rigs.
In a meeting with FOX Business’ Liz MacDonald, truck driver Matthew Garnett said Tesla semi-truck orders are a marketing tool for enterprises.
“When I am taking a gander at this, I simply snicker since Pepsi, UPS, this is an awesome marketing open door for them and in addition to that, it’s a win, win for them and Elon Musk since now he will get these Tesla trucks street tried by some individual who is paying the maximum for them,” he said.
Garnett contends that Tesla’s semi-trucks still can’t seem to be turned out to be to be reasonable for truck drivers.
“Some of these littler trucking organizations are going out on a limb on this that may really make them bankrupt,” he said.
UPS made the biggest known open pre-arrange with 125 of Tesla’s trucks. PepsiCo has requested 100, Budweiser brewer Anheuser-Busch uncovered it will arrange 40 and Wal-Mart requested 15.
Tesla anticipates that the truck will be underway by 2019.
