Summarize this content to 100 words Tesla has begun installing Megacharger mobile charging stations in the United States for its fleet of customer electric Semi trucks.According to the description on the nameplate on the device, the power of such a charging station is 375 kW. The manufacturer previously stated that a full-fledged stationary charging station for Tesla Semi electric trucks will use 1 MW ultra-fast charging technology based on the fourth generation of Supercharger stations, which will allow charging an electric truck in 30 minutes for a 400-mile range.Experts showed a connector for charging electric trucks, which differs from the standard connector for ordinary electric vehicles in terms of size and number of connectors.Tesla introduced the production version of its Tesla Semi electric truck late last year and provided the first batch to customers for testing. The manufacturer still hides data on the gross weight of the tractor with a battery and battery capacity options in the Semi. In December 2022, Tesla released a video showing its Tesla Semi electric truck traveling 500 miles (804 km) with a full 37-ton load (tractor, batteries, trailer, test load) on a single charge. The truck started its trip with a charge level of 97%, and at the end it had 4% left, but without specifying exactly how much payload the Tesla Semi was able to carry in such a situation. The Tesla Semi had a small climb on the way, and on average, the truck consumed 1.2 kWh of electricity for each kilometer.
