Tesla Roadster - 10000nm of Torque!

Proterra Catalyst electric bus

If Musk can pull this off, Tesla will be the second US company aiming to produce the world's fastest production auto. Bank of America Corp decreased their price objective on shares of Tesla from $170.00 to $165.00 and set an "underperform" rating for the company in a report on Wednesday, April 26th. "It's not like any truck that you've ever driven", Musk said. If true, that would make it the first time a production vehicle cracked the two-second threshold. Its battery is similar in composition to the batteries of Tesla energy products and is created to support repeated charging cycles for over a million miles, while its motors are derived from the motors used in Model 3 and have been validated to last more than one million miles under the most demanding conditions. Tesla Motors previously produced the 2008 Roadster, as their first sports vehicle. Imagine driving from Los Angeles to San Francisco and back, without recharging, Musk teased. What comes next is even more mind-numbing if it's really true.

"The point of doing this is to give a hardcore smackdown to gasoline cars", Musk said.

With four independent electric motors and a transmission that requires no shifting of gears, the Semi can accelerate to 60 miles (100 kilometers) per hour in five seconds - reaching that speed in 20 seconds while hauling a maximum 80,000 pound (36,000 kilogram) load, much faster than a traditional diesel truck, Tesla says. It also claims to boast an impressive 620 mile range. Musk has said it should take about two years for the semi to go on sale. The auto will not be available until 2020 and pricing has not been announced.

Houchois called the plan interesting, noting that it would help Tesla raise $250 million plus the $50,000 deposits on reservations.

The Tesla Semi, launched by Elon Musk, will deliver a far better experience for truck drivers, while increasing safety and significantly reducing the cost of cargo transport.

British motorcyclist Daniel Hegarty dies after crash at Macau GP
Hegarty died from his injuries as he was taken by ambulance to hospital. "Bike is much easier to ride now". He added: "It's a very sad end to what has been a successful week". "It's a tragic end to the day".

"Reserving Tesla trucks marks an important step in our efforts to implement industry-changing technology", said John Roberts, president and CEO.

With its latest product, the United States e-car pioneer faces a much more crowded field for electric trucks than it did when it introduced its electric cars.

Even so, the company already is starting to get orders.

After more than a decade of making cars and SUVs - and, more recently, solar panels - Tesla Inc. wants to electrify a new type of vehicle: big trucks.

With a sleek, aerodynamic profile, the Tesla Semi is billed as quicker and more economical than today's diesel-powered trucks. Do let us know about these vehicles in the comments section below.
