How quickly can a Tesla semi-truck accelerate?

The Tesla Semi truck's acceleration (0-60 mph in 20 seconds)

and several electric motors, which provide the largest amount of torque

make it ideal for hauling a heavy cargo through difficult terrain.

The new Tesla semi outperforms a diesel truck by an amazing margin in the sprint to 60 mph

with a diesel-powered truck loaded to its maximum-legal gross weight of 80,000 pounds.

According to Elon Musk, the Tesla Semis electric trucks can achieve 60 mph

in five seconds with no cargo and in 20 seconds with all of the freight.

Tesla's Semi, according to Musk, would cost up to 20 US cents per mile (12 US cents per kilometer)

less to operate than a diesel truck if charged at the megacharger.
