Ten Tesla-Y-Lumon trucks loaded with Pepsi drinks, will travel 160 km


    In early December, it became known that PepsiCo was the first company to receive a mass-produced Semielectric truck in Nevada. The logistics division of the food industry giant will buy about a hundred Semi tractors in a length of 800 km. PepsiCo representatives explained that when transportation branded soda, travel distance won’t exceed 160 km.

    When a report was uploaded earlier this month, Tesla repeatedly emphasized that a fully loaded road train, which carries a total weight of more than 37 tons, can cover 805 km without repeating, and the path when caught was recharging the map had ran through mountainous terrain. There was still no question how much of the machine could be, and what component of the total mass would be the tractor by itself with the battery. Only indirectly showed that the capacity of the latter is approaching 900 kWh; Tesla in its own right cited only the average monthly usage of electricity per mile 1,7 kWh. There was no report of the cost of the first cars for a car that had a power reserve of 800 km.

    According to Reuters, in an interview with the agency, CEO Mike OConnell talked about the company’s operation of the first Tesla Autos that went away. Of the 36 available vehicles, all of them will be distributed to two PepsiCo logistics centers in California. Tesla Semi will ship by 2020. Some trucks with chips travel 684 km, while the residual charge is 20%, and trucks with drink trucks in a semi-trailer will take about 160 km. What caused the last restriction, the company representative did not explain, nor did he say what residual charge would be given to the car, that would transport a load of soda over a distance of 160 km.

    Certainly a batch of potatoes will be limited by the cargo volume and not by the heavy weight of the wagon. The carrier didn’t also say anything about the price of the cars, explaining the car would pay for themselves in seven years of operation. PepsiCo will build four 750kW rapid charging stations in California at the end of the Tesla semi truck. The state has a contribution of 15,4 million dollars, which will help cover this cost. A federal subsidy of 40 000 dollars is a prepaid car for each vehicle. The electric trucks will be operational in the Central and Eastern part of the United States.

    A PepsiCo spokesman said it would take 35 to 45 minutes to recharge the traction battery from 20% to a high-speed terminal. When Tesla starts shipping a Semi-Jet with a nominal range of 480 km, PepsiCo plans on purchasing the corresponding machines for its needs. OConnell declined to disclose the mass of the empty Tesla Semi truck, so we couldn’t say more about the real capabilities of the new car as much as I would like to.
