Walmart Writes Big Check to Tesla

Electrek reports that the $200,000 Founder Series truck consumes significantly less energy than others and can travel 500 miles on a single charge. With a $20,000 "base reservation," Walmart has already spent more than $2 million in deposits for the trucks. The price tag that will climb to $20 million once the more than 100 electric trucks are in its possession.
