Coca-Cola, the world’s largest soft drink company, debuted its battery-operated Renault trucks before Pepsi released its Tesla Semi. On December 1, Pepsi is slated to start using the Tesla Semi for delivery operations, as reported by Gizmochina.

New electric trucks

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, was once made fun of by Renault Trucks, the company that made the new Coke delivery trucks. Coca-Cola has already started using its new electric trucks in Belgium while Pepsi is still building up its Megacharger station. Both Renault and Tesla’s long-haul EV trucks signal their arrival into the heavy-duty segment of the EV market. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has repeatedly broken his commitment to introduce the Semi since 2017. But this year, it’s anticipated to make its debut with 15 trucks to Pepsi, its first client, by December 1.

Last-mile deliveries 

The E-Tech D et D Wide model Renault trucks that Coca-Cola in Belgium received are anticipated to have a lower range than the Tesla Semi. Coke will use the Renault electric rigs for last-mile deliveries. According to Renault Trucks, the vehicle was specially created to accommodate Coca-logistical Cola’s data on deliveries. The vehicles offer drivers comfort, safety, and energy efficiency. Additionally, they include a glass door on the passenger side, 360-degree camera systems to prevent blind spots, and loudspeakers to warn bikers and pedestrians.

In contrast to the usual route length of 150 km for diesel delivery trucks, the Renault rigs have a range of 200 km on a single charge.

For the top-ups produced on-site, the trucks can be charged overnight from designated heaps utilising green energy.

Renault claims that through a number of tactical alliances, it is enhancing the public charging infrastructure throughout Europe. In 2023, it aspires to present a serious challenger to the Tesla Semi. The new electric truck will have a significantly wider range than the ones Coca-Cola is now using.
