Telsa has landed its largest pre-order for its all-electric semi-trucks.

The new Tesla truck interior is simple and clean, eliminating the multitude of equipment that often litters the cab of current semi trucks.

Earlier this week, UPS (United Parcel Service) placed the largest pre-order to date for Tesla's recently unveiled electric semi. However, there's no indication what the time to ramp up production might be for this 18-person company if some of the big fleet customers place initial orders to trial the trucks, as they have with Tesla.

UPS will be adding the new Tesla tractors to its existing fleet of trucks, which are propelled by electricity, natural gas, propane, and other non-traditional fuels.

UPS operates more than 108,000 vehicles.

That line of thinking matches that of many observers - in particular those that don't see Tesla's Semi Truck as a political football, but rather as a possible means of lowering operating costs (and sometimes greenhouse gas emissions).

A colleague of hers, Karthik, met her on the way, and the two spoke a few minutes, eyewitnesses said. In May, a 24-year-old woman was shot dead by a man in Delhi after she refused his marriage proposal.


"We do not think we will have the trucks before they start deliveries the United States". It feels the fuel savings will help lower the total cost of ownership per truck while reducing its overall carbon footprint. "We look forward to expanding further our commitment to fleet excellence with Tesla", Juan Perez, chief information and engineering officer at UPS, said in a statement.

The performance specs that Tesla announced for its electric semi truck last month were unbelievable for some.

The company now has a working prototype of its ET-One, and offers fleet demos to prospective buyers, and expects to be able to produce the truck in 2019. The $180,000 vehicles won't begin production until 2019, but that hasn't stopped companies like Budweiser, Pepsi, and Walmart from dipping their toes in the EV pool.

With hundreds of trucks on order, Tesla is starting to get some pressure to deliver the vehicle on time.

Reuters reported Tesla has roughly 410 pre-orders for the truck.

During a presentation in the Netherlands last month, Jerome Guillen, Tesla's Vice-President of Trucks, said that the company is now undergoing development to adapt the Tesla Semi design to European trucking regulations.
