Musk recently revealed that his company has no plans to take the Model X, Model S or Model 3 above 100kWh, but noted that a future electric semi-trailer truck would need to go above 100kWh. This means that Tesla’s semi-truck will need to feature a battery significantly bigger than what has been included in previous Tesla vehicles. Musk has hinted about Tesla’s ambitions to create a semi-truck in the past.
Musk will unveil the finished the Model 3 in July, which gives Tesla fans something to look forward to in case waiting for September is too long.
