Grocery chain joins FedEx and other large cos. backing Tesla Semi trucks

Grocery giant Albertsons is buying 10 Tesla Semi trucks and plans to operate them in Southern California. Albertsons joins Memphis-based FedEx and a growing number of other large companies kicking the tires on Tesla’s new vehicle.

It’s still unclear when Tesla will begin producing the Semi, which the company unveiled last year. CEO Elon Musk had suggested the first Semis would begin rolling off the assembly line in 2019, and ramp up production in 2020.
