Megacharger Deployment Details
We are at the end of a file that we want to be thorough about the Tesla Semi. Written entirely by a German engineer, we wanted to introduce you to our production power on a topic directly related to the future of Tesla.
This last thread talks about the Megachargers network offered by the manufacturer to Tesla Semi customers.
Tesla deploys metered charging infrastructure for Tesla Semi
Not only does Tesla supply logistics companies with Semi trucks, it also provides an entire charging network called Megacharger. Like Tesla, which can be charged simply, quickly and reliably, the Semi also has its own Megacharger network, a huge advantage that no other electric truck manufacturer currently offers.
The manufacturer offers a BtoB charging offer
Tesla has 10 years of experience in charging stations and even installs them directly in logistics centers such as warehouses or distribution centers so that trucks can be connected to the electricity grid during loading and unloading. This is done by using energy generated by solar panels at distribution centers, further reducing costs per kilometer.
Many people don’t realize that a big problem in the trucking industry is contract billing, because diesel prices fluctuate so much that they can cut into profits.
With the electricity and price deals guaranteed by Tesla’s Megacharger network, these problems are almost completely eliminated. A more reliable contract calculation provides certainty, less stress, lower logistics costs for customers and a stable margin with better services.
Capable of carrying up to 34 tons or 82,000 pounds, the Tesla Semi has a range of up to 800 km, so it doesn’t need to be refueled as often as other trucks and can reach distances that other cars can’t. . This alone is a unique advantage that allows Tesla to transform the transportation industry and will direct customers to random delivery points or distribution centers for Tesla.
Competition with non-subscribers
Now if you’re wondering why there isn’t a chapter analyzing the Tesla Semi’s competition, it’s because there isn’t any competition. With a range of 500 miles on a single charge and fuel consumption of less than 2KWh/mile, and the prospect of reaching 1.7KWh/mile confirmed by Elon Musk, no one can come close to Tesla or have the technology to come close to it in the future. . In 2017, the analogy with the Model 3 is therefore quite relevant.
Why is transport decarbonisation a key issue?
You may wonder why all this is important. As Elon points out, trucking is responsible for 20% of all pollutant emissions in the US, and the same is true in Europe and Asia.
The impact of climate change caused by this form of transport is largely underestimated and ignored because logistics and transport are like blood vessels that supply our body with food and energy; therefore we tend to accept the high costs we pay.
Without food and energy, our bodies would quickly collapse, and the same is true for our economy. For this simple reason, the damage to the environment and the entire population is neglected, even though these are huge problems that need to be solved long ago.
The only person brave enough to disrupt one of the world’s most powerful industries, the energy industry, is Elon Musk, and we all need to support him if we want Earth to have a chance in the future.
