Tesla unveil Semi, new Roadster, & also teased a "pickup truck"

Anyone watch the unveil last night?



The numbers on the semi destroyed what anyone thought possible.

- 0-60 in 5 sec
- 0-60 in 20 sec under max gross payload of 80k lbs
- 65mph up 5% grade under max lied, compared to 45mph for ICE semi
- 500 mile range
- 400 miles of additional range after 30 min charge
- Guaranteed 7/kWh fuel cost(solar) compared to volatile oil
- Nuclear explosion proof glass(apparently cracked windshield takes semi off road)
- 1 million mile guarantee it won't breakdown
- Will never need a brake change
- "Impossible" to jacknife
- Beats semis on economics day 1
- In convoy mode, beats rail on economics

300 miles of range: $150,000
500 miles of range: $180,000
Founders series: $200,000




https://youtu.be/CBTQnmUolas
The Roadster was a complete surprise, and the numbers given destroy any production car you can think of, even a Koenisegg.

- 0-60 in 1.9 sec (this is faster than most Formula 1 cars)
- 0-100 in 4.2
- 1/4 mile in 8.9 sec
- 250+ mph top speed
- 621 mile range (That's Kansas City to Denver without fueling)
- 10,000 nm torque

and that's the base model. Starting at $200k and Founders series at $250k. Destroys million dollar cars.



Also teased a rendering image of a consumer pickup truck with a normal truck in the bed.

That's good, shortage of drivers now, however, it will be a job killer. Have to have on board computers in the trailers to allow access.


Plus the warehouse and consignees have to have the new computer equipment to communicate with the truck and it's pay load.

What about the flatbed and oversize freight that needs to move, who is going to do this work?

This, plus I have other concerns, inclement weather. Is this 80,000 lb rig going to be able to handle a 5* grade up or down in snow and icy conditions. It will shut down most likely when an experience driver will get through being able to feel the road through his power train.

1st time a chip goes out and that thing wipes out human life, the shit is revisited all over again.

I can't wait until they make an electric pickup that matches my Chevy 2500 diesel. That will be awesome.

Once full autonomy is achieved, RV's will be amazing.

Go to sleep in one city, wake up in the next. Would make for a great retirement.

Someone got "all up in there" on the motors and gear boxes. Guess I assumed batteries would've been distributed across entire frame.

One was actually being used and the car ended up passing us within an hour on the highway.

Electric motors have an advantage as they get up to rpm instantly thus the performance numbers.

Now the battery suppliers just needs to get their shit together.
All four of the stalls were being used when I went to The Fort (across from the Frosty Freeze) this morning.

Anybody have a Tesla Model S? I'm renting one when I'm going to Florida in a couple of weeks. Should be a blast.

Always wanted to buy one, but I'm a cheapass and can't see using that amount of funds on a depreciating asset. Plus the insurance has got to be outrageous. Was curious what the insurance runs on a used Model S with 40k miles or so?

Tesla is going out of business. They've already announced it - I didn't read the whole thread - but it's all over the web.

They used to say Amazon was an unprofitable venture and was going out of business. Now Jeff Bezos is the richest man in the world. Tesla has too much Google money and other rich peoples investments to fail I think.

They are just currently not profitable and struggling to produce as many Model 3's as they hoped. They'll eventually produce enough, and they have more than enough demand to become profitable eventually and as more EV infrastructure and superchargers become available and seen by the public. Every day EV cars will become more and more acceptable, and sought after. Less Billy Bobs who want to hear their engine go vroom vroom and the smell of gas, and more nerds who care about the environment and innovative tech.
