What are your thoughts on Tesla's new electric semi truck?

Recommended Posts

Looks like some kind of a rocket ship and not a truck IMO... Don't think it would fit in too well with the current trailers for trucks, or in the roads in general.

The truck itself is an amazing feat on Tesla's part. It is looking like it will be quite the expensive truck, figures are saying something like $400K, but that is only an estimate. If that figure is correct then it may not be an alternative for most companies. But if it is more in the range of $250-$300K that may be a whole different game that can significantly change the whole industry.

 

The truck can go some 500 miles on a full charge at highway speeds, also with the correct charging station, it can charge 400 miles in 30 minutes supposedly. I am hoping that Tesla can make this truly work, but if this only turns out as an attempt to change the industry that is enough to be successful for me.

 

I look forward to what is to come.
