Walmart Canada orders 30 Additional Electric Semi-Trucks from Tesla

Expanding on the 10 Tesla semi-trucks ordered last November, Walmart Canada has decided to take further action towards reducing their carbon footprint; aiming to have their entire fleet powered from alternative energy by 2028. The semi-trucks come with the promise of integrating automated driving in the future, and will also help Walmart reach their goal of electrifying 20% of their fleet by 2022.

 

The initial 20 semi-trucks will operate out of Mississauga, and will have a range of approximately 800 kilometres. With the reduced energy consumption that is used to run the new electric semis, an expected $0.50 per kilometre will be saved in comparison to their current petroleum powered trucks when travelling at highway speeds. A significant reason why Walmart Canada is able to switch over from diesel so quickly, is that the range on the electric semis is sufficient enough for the single-day round trips their drivers usually take; removing the need to rely on charging stations enroute.

 

This is a step towards green energy that BSG is excited to see happening. With more and more companies looking towards green energy solutions and reducing their carbon emissions, we hope that they inspire homeowners to consider how they could reduce their own household emissions.
