Budweiser beer maker Anheuser-Busch has reserved 40 Tesla Inc all-electric Semi trucks as it seeks to reduce fuel costs and vehicle emissions, the brewer said on Thursday.
It was one of the largest publicly announced orders Tesla has received for its electric trucks, which are scheduled to be in production by 2019.
Tesla - CEO - Elon - Musk - Rig
Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the big rig, dubbed the Tesla Semi, in November by riding the truck into an airport hangar near Los Angeles.
'At Anheuser-Busch, we are constantly seeking new ways to make our supply chain more sustainable, efficient, and innovative,' said James Sembrot, senior director of logistics strategy.

The U.S. subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev NV plans to use the trucks for shipments to wholesalers within the 500-mile (800-km) range promised by Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk.
