Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, has recently announced the much-anticipated Tesla Semi Truck. This game-changing vehicle is set to revolutionize the trucking industry, boasting an unprecedented range of up to 500 miles on a single charge, compared to other electric trucks which have a range of only 20-80 miles. It will also feature Enhanced Autopilot, allowing drivers to keep their hands off the wheel for long periods of time.
The Semi Truck will have a battery pack that will be capable of charging at Megachargers located at strategic points across the country. Musk estimates that they will be able to charge up to 400 miles in 30 minutes and get back on the road quickly. It is expected that the Semi Truck’s long range and fast charging capabilities will enable truckers to make more money per trip as they won’t need to stop as often for fuel or rest breaks.
In terms of performance, the Tesla Semi Truck is expected to have a 0-60mph acceleration time of just five seconds – unheard of for a Class 8 truck. It will also have an improved braking system which should allow it to come to a complete stop from highway speed in just five seconds.
So how much will it cost? While pricing has not yet been officially announced by Tesla Motors, there are some estimates floating around the internet which suggest that it could cost anywhere from $150,000-$200,000 – significantly higher than current diesel semi trucks which typically cost around $100,000.
The Tesla Semi Truck is sure to be an exciting new addition to the trucking industry and could potentially revolutionize how goods are transported across America. With its long range and quick charging capabilities it is sure to be popular with truckers looking for more efficient ways of getting their jobs done safely and quickly.
