Tesla Semi Truck: Will The 500-Mile Tesla Semi Truck Revolutionize The Trucking Industry ? Let’s find ?
I expect that Tesla will be publishing this information very soon, and I will be among the first to hail the revolutionary Tesla trucks that are going to change the trucking industry, provided that this is the way things are going.
We are very close to being able to confirm that the Tesla Semis could be changing the whole paradigm of the trucking industry, but Tesla needs to just release some more pieces of information for this to happen.
There is still more information needed to understand how Tesla Semis will adapt to the transportation industry, and how Tesla Semis will leverage what EV mobility offers over diesel; it is going to take time to know whether or not they will be able to compete against traditional trucks, but one thing is for sure: The market is going to look on with interest to this electric truck, and Tesla has started the process of undeniably disrupting the industry.
According to statements made by Elon Musk during the unveiling last night, Teslas highly anticipated new technology for the Semi, as well as its aerodynamically efficient design, will allow it to reach 500 miles of range, entirely eliminating the need for fuel stops, and will keep the Semi from ever being driven jackknife.
A video during the event showed, according to Tesla, the fully loaded Tesla Semi speeding down a steep grade and passing other trucks. Because it does not have multi-gear transmissions like diesel trucks, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said, it is also far easier to drive than other Semi trucks.
Tesla released a timelapse video showing one of its fully electric semi trucks driving 500 miles carrying 82,000 pounds, equivalent to the entire cargo, on one charge.
Elon Musk and Dan Priestley have removed any doubt about the 500-mile range of this early-production, all-electric Semi truck running on a single charge.
We have not heard a lot recently about Teslas Semi, but in a new interview, the impresario Elon Musk – who is staking out the European battery conference – claims that his company will achieve not 500, not 600, but 621 miles on a single charge.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk did not disclose during the event how many trucks are actually being delivered to PepsiCo, nor how many are being produced, nor at what pace. The all-electric semi truck has an unusual design, with the driver sitting in the middle of the cabin instead of off to one side.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk disclosed on the earnings call in May that his semi trucks are powered by a bunch of Model 3 engines that are placed along the trucks axles. With its announcement of an all-electric semi, Tesla made clear it preferred the faster timeframe of electrification in the trucking industry, though it is expected that its trucks will not begin to produce until at least 2019.
Teslas standards for the trucking industry are poised to clash; the appropriately named Semi is as efficient as it is emissions-free.
The A Tesla Semis electric motor drivetrain, which is controlled by computers and can react quickly, offers advantages in both grip and stability control, making trucks safer, at least in principle, to everyone on the road.
