Brewer Anheuser-Busch Places Order for 40 Tesla Semis

Posted: Updated:

According to the Associated Press, Brewer Anheuser-Busch - which owns Budweiser and other brands - has placed an order for 40 all-electric Tesla Semis, meaning beer could soon be delivered by Tesla.           

Tesla Inc. unveiled the semi last month, but production won't begin until 2019. For now, customers can put down a $5,000 deposit to reserve one.

Anheuser-Busch says the Tesla Semis would be part of a 750-truck U.S. fleet that transports products from breweries to wholesalers. The trucks will help the Belgium-based company meet its goal of reducing global carbon emissions by 30 percent in 2025.

Tesla won't say how many companies have put down deposits. But Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and midwest retailer Meijer Inc. are among those that have placed orders.
