According to a Tweet from Tesla last night, the company will hold a “Delivery Event” for the much-delayed semi-truck on December 1st at the Giga Factory in Nevada. Tesla has not confirmed what the event will entail. According to Electrek, the event will be exclusive to shareholders who won a random drawing through Tesla’s new Shareholder Program.

If the event next month goes off without a hitch, that could be a serious boost for Tesla as it will then have the only EV semi on the market. The vehicle’s range has not been confirmed and any real specifications have been scarce to come by, but an actual physical vehicle being delivered to customers is an accomplishment in its own right. Given Elon Musk’s current dealings as Twitter’s new CEO, it’s anyone’s guess whether or not he will have a lot to do with the new launch. Regardless of Elon’s involvement, it’s good that customers have some more concrete news, however scant. That’s more than can be said about the Tesla Cybertruck.
