PepsiCo to use Tesla electric trucks to cut emission

Pre-orders continue to roll in from companies across industries from grocery and food and beverage, to transport and logistics, amounting to at least 140 pre-ordered semis, a number that the carmaker has not officially confirmed.

Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) just received its largest order for its all-electric Semi Truck from a corporate customer to date, with PepsiCo reserving 100 units. According to Reuters, the soda and snack giant has reserved 100 Semi trucks in a bid to reduce fleet emissions and cut down on fuel costs.

PepsiCo is the latest company to place an order for Tesla's upcoming Semi, which was unveiled in November alongside the 2020 Tesla Roadster.

Reuters says PepsiCo expects to use the Tesla trucks for shipments of snacks and drinks between manufacturing facilities and distribution points, then to retailers retailers within the trucks' promised 500-mile range.

The semi-trucks will complement PepsiCo's USA fleet of almost 10,000 big rigs and are a key part of its plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across its supply chain by a total of at least 20 percent by 2030, said Mike O'Connell, the senior director of North American supply chain for PepsiCo subsidiary Frito-Lay.

PepsiCo intends to use the trucks for shipments of beverages and snacks foods from factories or distribution centers to retailers, and is now deciding which routes would best suit the electric semis. Canada is becoming a hotbed for Tesla Semi early orders. Coca-Cola? Nestle? InBev? Or will it be Kraft, owners of Kool-Aid?

However, a 300-mile version of the Tesla Semi truck is also available for a starting sticker of $150,000.
