Musk says Tesla Semi output starting, with deliveries to Pepsi in December
- However, parts shortages pushed the production timeline back, Reuters notes.
Of note: Musk announced in August plans to start shipping the vehicles next year.
- He told Tesla investors in January that rolling out the Semi in this year "would not make any sense because we’ll still be parts-constrained," per Bloomberg.
The intrigue: It wasn't immediately clear how many of the trucks Tesla would roll out in the first batch.
- Representatives for PepsiCo did not immediately respond to Axios' request for comment.
