Tesla Semi Truck Details Emerge
« on: November 13, 2017, 09:54:41 pm »
Tesla has had a few wins this year to go along with their big loss on their production numbers. Speaking of things that will never be popular, more details have just rolled out regarding their Tesla Semi Truck. They are having plenty of problems getting the Model 3 out the door and the semi reveal has been postponed from September to October and now November. I'm thinking that they should just stick to a couple of models and figure out how to produce them in volume first. The demand is there - and they need to fill it. Semi trucks, while incredibly popular need incredible range and power - something that electric vehicles delivery half of.

   Still, Tesla claims to have had the ear of the trucking industry and that industry experts consulted in the product planning process for the semi. “We’re getting them closely involved in the design process, so the biggest customers of the heavy duty Tesla semi are helping ensure that it is specified to their needs, so it’s not a mystery,” Musk said at a June conference call. “They already know that it’s going to meet their needs, because they’ve told us what those needs are. So it’ll really just be a question of scaling volume to make as many as we can.”Source: TheVerge
