According to a new tweet by Tesla CEO Elon Musk, we will have to wait a little longer than expected to see the company’s previously announced electric freight truck. But unlike those folks waiting for delivery of their Model 3s, the freight truck unveiling is just one extra month out.
Musk not only calls out a tentative date of Oct. 26 for the unveiling, but also gives the location as Hawthorne, Calif., which puts it at the SpaceX facility where Tesla has previously held events.
Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride tentatively scheduled for Oct 26th in Hawthorne. Worth seeing this beast in person. It’s unreal.

We know a little about this electric freight truck. According to a report by Reuters, its 200- to 300-mile range will make it more suited for regional deliveries than long haul. A rendering released by Tesla shows what looks like a modern tractor rig.
In his tweet, Musk is impressed with how it came out, calling it a “beast.”
