The release of the Tesla Semi truck will be delayed until 2022. This is reported by the publication Business Insider.

The failure of the start of production of an electric truck is associated with problems with the supply chain and limited availability of battery cells. From the letter to Tesla shareholders, it follows that the corporation is forced to postpone the start of production of the Semi for 2022. The exact launch dates are not specified. The report says that Tesla intends to complete the construction of new plants in Berlin and Austin by the end of the year.

Most likely, the company will postpone the start of production of the Cybertrack pickup truck. The head of Tesla, Elon Musk, did not directly comment on the delay, but journalists found confirmation of this fact in the financial results report.

The authors of the publication recalled that Musk admitted the possibility of a breakdown in January. Then he warned investors that the delay in the production of trucks could occur due to a shortage of batteries.

The announcement of the Semi electric tractor truck took place in November 2017. According to the company's engineers, the machine can lift up to 36 tons of cargo. The Tesla Semi accelerates to 100 kilometers per hour in five seconds, the power reserve on a single charge is 800 kilometers.

According to data for the second quarter of 2021, Tesla showed a record profit. The auto giant's revenue amounted to $ 11.96 billion, net profit - $ 1.14 billion, distributed earnings per share — $ 1.45.
