Tesla Semi Proves its Mettle in Real-world Test, Outperforming Competitors in Run on Less Event

Tesla's Electric Class 8 Truck Demonstrates Superior Range and Charging Efficiency

PepsiCo’s top-performing Tesla Semi covered an average of approximately 574 miles per day throughout the 18-day event. The closest non-Tesla vehicle in terms of daily distance was WattEV’s Nikola Tre BEV, averaging about 255 miles per day. It was followed by OK Produce’s Freightliner eCascadia with an average of approximately 181 miles and Performance Team’s Volvo VNR Electric, which averaged about 175 miles per day.

Remarkably, one PepsiCo Tesla Semi impressively covered 1,076 miles in a single day, thanks to three fast-charging stops at 750-kilowatt chargers, boosting the battery charge to around 47 percent, then 89 percent, and finally 52 percent.

PepsiCo also highlighted that 60 percent of the miles driven during the 18-day event were carried with a gross vehicle weight exceeding 72,000 pounds, a weight typical in the logistics industry and nearing the 82,000-pound limit for zero-emission semi tractor-trailer combinations.
