Tesla delays truck launch, eyes battery power for Puerto Rico

Tesla delays truck launch, eyes battery power for Puerto RicoTesla said Friday it was delaying the planned launch of its electric transport truck, diverting resources to step up production of its Model 3 sedan and to produce batteries for storm-ravaged Puerto Rico. The electric carmaker’s chief executive Elon Musk announced the news on Twitter, pushing back the launch of its semi-truck which had been set to be unveiled October 26 in California. The news comes after a slower-than-expected debut for Tesla’s Model 3, the $ 35,000 sedan — half the price of earlier models — which aims to bring electric vehicles to a broader market.
