Alright, alright, alright… so the 2017 Tesla event blew everyone’s mind like NEVER before, all thanks to the real life Iron man aka. Elon Musk ! The numbers are jaw dropping & I’m sure they won’t disappoint you. Elon first presented the Tesla Semi truck & grabbed everyone’s attention while surprisingly – the Roadster was the cargo, the truck was carrying ! Enough of this intro, you have no idea how excited I am to share the mind-blowing facts about Tesla Semi truck & Tesla roadster with you ! ?
Tesla Semi truck :-
Damn, where do I start…
- Tesla Semi truck is a heavy duty electric vehicle which could carry loads upto 80,000 lbs(that’s around 37 tons) !
- The truck goes from 0-100 km/h in 5 seconds ! ?
- In worst case scenario, the Tesla truck has a range of 500 miles(800 km) ! Yeah, that’s worst case, it could do better !
- The truck has an enhanced autopilot systems which automatically brakes & lane keeps as well.
- The Tesla Semi is more aerodynamic than the 1500hp super sports car Bugatti Chiron ! Normal diesel trucks have a drag coefficient(Cd) of 0.65, Chiron has a Cd of 0.38, while the Tesla truck has coefficient of 0.35 !
- The truck has got 4 independent motors, 1 for each wheel. Elon Musk teased by saying, “Even if 2 motors fail, it’ll still be a diesel truck.”
- You could travel upto 400 miles with just 30 mins of charge ! It simply means that, plug in your truck, have breakfast, take a shit… DONE, drive it for hours.
- The problem of jackknifing(uncontrolled skidding movement) has been completely eliminated in the Tesla Semi !
- Trucks carry huge amount of loads constantly for long distances & hence has a greater chance to breakdown anywhere in the middle of a road. Keeping this in mind, Tesla guarantees that the Tesla truck would not break down for a 1 million miles. Period.
- The production of Tesla truck begins in 2019 !
Tesla Roadster :-
Oh my Goddd, I would describe this car by saying – “I have got a new life goal…”

- This thing has got a top speed of 250+ mp/h (400+ km/h) & 10,000 Nm of torque !
- Despite this great speed & acceleration, the Tesla Roadster has a range of 600+ miles(1000 km) !
