Tesla Inc chief Elon Musk tweeted on Tuesday that supply requirements identified with battery cells are making it hard proportional up production of its since a long time ago deferred Tesla Semi electric commercial truck, sending the organization’s shares down almost 2%.

“Demand is no problem, but near-term cell supply makes it hard to scale Semi. This limitation will be less onerous next year,” the billionaire entrepreneur said.

Musk’s statement was because of a tweet which referred to a news report about the electric carmaker accepting an order for ten Semi trucks from MHX Leasing LLC.

At the point when Musk uncovered the prototype of the futuristic, battery-powered Semi in 2017, he said the Class 8 truck would go into production by 2019. That timeline was subsequently pushed to 2021 and the organization said it hopes to begin delivering the model as well.

A week ago, Musk had recommended the bottlenecks would cause the mass production to be postponed until 2022.
