Tesla co-founder and CEO Elon Musk has made no secret of the fact that the company is working on an all-electric semi truck. This will be the first vehicle of its kind from Tesla which has previously done roadsters, sedans, and crossovers. Musk has now revealed when Tesla is going to show off its much awaited all-electric semi truck.

It was reported last month that Tesla was planning to unveil its all-electric semi truck in September. Musk reiterated during the company’s second quarter earnings call that the reveal was on schedule. However, the event is now going to take place a little later than originally scheduled.

Musk has confirmed via Twitter that the Tesla semi truck unveil and test ride has been “tentatively scheduled” for October 26th at the company’s Hawthrone facility. He added that it’s “worth seeing this beast in person. It’s unreal.”

It goes without saying that Tesla is only going to be unveiling its all-electric semi truck at this event. There’s no saying how long it’s going to take for Tesla to actually start mass producing them and selling them to customers.

Reports suggest that the semi truck from Tesla is going to promise a range of 300 miles on a single charge. The technical details aren’t public at this point in time so we’ll have to wait until the end of next month to find out for sure.
