one of tesla's first semi truck buyers is a canadian grocery chain

the supermarket giant recently committed to a 30 percent reduction in its overall carbon footprint by 2030, and it sees electric trucks playing an important role. it estimates that pulling diesel from its vehicles would be the equivalent of pulling 20,000 cars from the road. tesla's semi would clearly help toward that goal, and it might be a better option than existing electric trucks (like one loblaws bought from byd) if it lives up to claims of faster trips and greater safety.this is very unlikely to be tesla's larg...
