The Semi truck – this is the name given to the latest creation by Tesla!
The company has invested in “green” road vehicles. Tesla has also designed the first electric truck. Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla presented this vehicle with its futuristic design at a conference in Los Angeles. This new truck highlights the importance of integrating ecology in road transport.
Tesla Semi holds many surprises with its modern design and its aero dynamics. Moreover, this truck has surprising good technical performance. The vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100 km in 5 seconds. It also benefits from an 800 km autonomy (about 500 miles) with a maximal load. However, this last point is still a weakness in comparison to the diesel model still on the market. The constructor plans to install “mega chargers” to make up for this downside.
The cockpit is also futuristic, made up of one single seat with 2 lateral screens. It can’t be transformed into sleeping mode but there’s enough space for the driver to stand up.
The launch is planned for 2019 – with a price tag of about €150,000, that might make potential buyers think twice.
