I remember reading about this partnership between Tesla and PepsiCo a while back. I think the article and byline are misleading in that there’s not going to be 100 stalls. Buried in it is the statement that there’s no details on number or power of stalls but I’d imagine they have to be 1 megawatt for time efficiency.
I could see an unhitched Semi using summon feature goes to the charger. Robotic arm plugs it in, dispatch computer knows the next route and it charges to route + 20% safety factor and out it goes to the trailer.

Heard so many in the industry saying this is the future of trucking/freight: unmanned or autonomous.

The solution to the shortage of drivers, lol..

When T first announced the the truck, an electrical engineering friend calculated how much EACH truck would need to meet the stated charge time... 1 Megawatt per station. Maybe micro power plants at each charging site?

That engineer must have assumed a battery twice the size, arriving perfectly empty and that it must charge at max rate while the driver waits for the duration.
Probably does not even own an EV.

You probably saw the all electric truck Ford F-150 Lightning, which most people compare to Tesla Cybertruck. In fact, every electric pickup truck coming into market is being compare to the Cyber truck. Tesla and Elon Musk proved it long time ago that Cybertruck is an engineering genius, which translates to how unique it looks and how easy it is to manufacture this electric truck. In this video we are going to share with you all confirmed delivery dates for the Cybertruck after it has achieved BIG milestone of over 1 million pre-orders.

Dang, I made the order on Day 1 of the launch of the Cybertruck and I did not get the email invite.

Anyways, the news that release of few units will be made late this year and that the press is already at the Texas giga is good enough for me..

Math appeared to be sound, using Tesla's claim of charging to IRC 80% in 30 minutes. That is going to take a LOT of electrons
