Tesla delivers Model 3 EVs using electric Semi, for first time

Tesla makes Model 3 deliveries with its electric truck for the first time.

Californian carmaker Tesla has shared a video of the first delivery of electric cars on an electric Tesla Semi prototype.

Sporting a car trailer with four Model 3s on board, the fully electric semi is shown pulling up to a very excited family who are evidently thrilled at being the first ever customers to have their new car delivered by electric truck.

The video was preceded by a photo release from Tesla on social media channel Twitter, showing the very happy family receiving and posing for photo in their Model 3.

The delivery is seen by some as what will become de rigeur for the electric car company that has upturned the American car industry and is now on a warpath to do the same overseas in Europe and China.

The carmaker faced some delivery woes in September last year as it ramped up Model 3 production and sales, prompting an personal apology to a customer from CEO and founder Elon Musk who said at the time, we’ve gone from production hell to delivery logistics hell.”

With further delivery challenges faced in its expansion to Europe and China, Musk recently thanked all involved in delivering its cars overseas.
