Tesla Semi REVEALED: EV has 500 miles and reaches the speed of 0-60 km / h in five secondsJanuary 30, 2018
Tesla CEO Elon Musk presented the new Semi Truck at a launch event in Hawthorne, California. Here’s everything you need to know about the new truck.
Tesla launched two new electric cars this morning – Semi Truck and Roadster 2.0.
The inaugural event for the electric truck took place in Hawthorne, California and was broadcast live on the company’s website.
Tesla’s boss, Elon Musk, led the presentation of the new vehicle and said, “We want a vehicle that feels and accelerates like no other.”
Unbelievable, the Semi Truck can go from zero to 60 km / h in just five seconds and accelerate to 60 mph in just 20 seconds, even with a maximum load of 80,000 kilograms.
The semi-trailer can also travel up to 5% grade with a maximum load of 65 mph compared to a diesel truck that can travel at 45 mph.
50% per mile on a diesel truck due to the higher speed.
Diesel trucks are 20% more expensive than a semi on the first day.
The new electric truck will have a 500-mile gap with a maximum mass of 60 km / h.
“Because this truck has no speed, do not change gear all the time,” Musk said.
“It has a ride, it’s smooth, it’s like a Tesla, the S-model or the X-model or the 3-model.
Elon Musk described his 500-mile range as a “worst-case” scenario, indicating a significantly higher range without much load.
Each wheel has motors that change the torque and prevent collisions.
The truck design was inspired by a “bullet” and has a better traction coefficient than the new Bugatti Chiron Hypercar.
Semi-Truck has a draw coefficient of 0.36 versus 0.38 on Chiron.
Semi drivers are in the middle instead of one side and are flanked by two touchscreens – similar to model 3.
It has created reliability for one million miles before it decays and can only work with two faster and more efficiently than a diesel truck.
The vehicle will also come in a number of colors.
It will use solar power and connect to the new “Mega Charger” network.
The car is automatically delivered with an autopilot that helps you to brake and service the belt.
It costs $ 5,000 for a reservation and production will begin in 2019.
