    They got really excited about the truck accelerating fast. I guess they dont know anything about freight and it shifting from either breaking too quickly or, you guessed it, accelerating too quickly. That being said, 65 up a hill is fantastic but, where's the proof?

    In the USA you are not aloud to convoy. It plugs up the highways. Just look at the mess when the US army convoys, traffic gets all backed up.

    I dream if the day when these are common place on the road. My parents live by a 4 lane highway. If I stay at their house ALL I HEAR constantly are diesel semi trucks up and down their highway. Those things are so loud and they stink so bad. The Tesla semi just seems polite.

    Dollars drive decisions along with having a competitive edge not truck drivers who could never afford a Tesla truck. The small independents have got to hate this man as he will take away and send their profits into the hands of the big trucking companies and their share holders.The pros and cons whatever they turn out to be won't stop this man and his innovations. I would expect improvements on the release of each new model in an effort to debunk the naysayers.

    Elon musk is genius... no doubt, I pray his number are correct that this truck will cost 20 percent cheaper than the Disel truck... how much pollution we can say..... But what about battery replacement cost, what the life of battery? I am still wondering why Toyoto haven't come with Hydrogen Truck?

    Piston engine goes "sproing diggity sproing diggity" with a hundred moving parts. A Tesla motor has (how many moving parts?) only one moving part. The armature. Oh, then the hundreds of moving parts in a "transmission". Tesla: no transmission. We are growing up further. Please grow up. It's our destiny. Wait! I forgot about your "rear-end". There is not one of those either.

    500 miles is terrible the truck needs to go 800-1000 miles. That would make it nice. We can go 80 mph in some states. 70-75 in others. You can put chargers in truck stops l. The charger need to complete its job in 10 hours or less.

  • Deerjaw Williams
    Deerjaw Williams 3 months ago

    500 miles isn't even one quarter the range of current rigs. The charging requirements are ridiculous and not economically friendly. I seen your rig in Denver today. I'm a real truck driver. Your rig won't keep up with me guaranteed.

  • Deerjaw Williams

    Pull 55 thousand pounds of freight weight over the Rockies in the winter with the best your competitors have or your not building a truck. I like your ideas. But if you can't roll with the biggest you can't roll at all.

    so my point is the driver positioning is wrong due to the disconnection with the customer at the point of delivery, also when jackknifing and backing into a dock, the ability for a driver to hang the head out the window is lost during this jackknived position and there is no help from the mirrors, all you see is the side of the trailer. tesla please address this issue and make the driver able to see out the side window for safety. also if you are able to let the driver see out he window on both sides during these difficult backing maneuvers while remotely controlling steering this will be win-win-win and $$$$$$. Good job Tesla.

    I know this guys a genuis but he's got no idea at all about trucking
    First, you don't want fast acceleration in a truck unless you want to smash your load through the back door.
    2nd, it's got no swing dip clearance for maneuvering and reversing to loading docks.
    And 3rd, it looks awful, real trucks are like the king of hot rods, this thing looks like an oversized adult toy

    So I am going to be driving this thing in 2 years and i already hate it because of the driver position. I like to pull up to a site and be able to talk to my customer.. I like to talk to my customer from the normal position, racecar position??? really rethink this Elon. really Elon rethink this.. i like the idea of a connection with a racecar driver but the big connection occurs is when I greet my customer and we discuss the ideal posistioning of the truck for loading. Really elon rethink this racecar drivers are really disconnected from everything and focused one pure driving. delivery drivers are focused on customer satisfaction I want to say good morning to my customers, end of story.

  • Offleash 1/10M8

    Sorry boys and girls but here is no answer. all the building materials to build your house was delivered by a truck, everything you ate today was delivered by a truck, all the clothing that you own was guess what? Train? no.. we are dependant on trucks as a soceity. this is the way, the future. Someday we are going to run out of fossil fuel and it's not infinate, the power of the sun is what we have to sustain many generations, so let's use it and be wise.

  • Offleash 1/10M8
    Offleash 1/10M8 3 months ago

    Can't do it. huh ? well Thor can and they got you beat then. the delivery is not done until you get that trailer backed into the dock. the delivery is not done until it's done. Sorry boys and girls we got it done before before you counselled your stressed driver that got all confused and could not make it to the dock without instruction. Too bad we earned the nickel first.

    Bet the truck cost is way more than a diesel truck. So.. companies are supposed to pay 10 times more for a rig that only has a 500 mile range? DOT allows truckers to drive 11 hours per day. Most Interstates are 65+mph speed limits. 65mph × 11 hours of drive time =715 miles per day. It isnt uncommon for a trucker to drive 600 to 650 miles. Imagine what truck stops would look like when electric trucks are clogging up the lot by charging.
    Telsa cars have crashed on auto pilot. So... how safe is a 40 ton rig on auto pilot?
    Telsa says this is great for economy. How good is an economy that kills millions of jobs? Look what technology has done to production & manufacturing jobs. It killed it.
    Whats next Telsa? Going to start building Terminators? Arnold warned us about Sky Lab & now Tesla is Sky Lab.
    Hey Tesla. Global warning is bullshit. Oil is part of Earth & we have enough oil to last over 500 years. Plus we have Natural Gas & Hydrogen. Batteries are for Flashlights & cell phones.
    BTW. This guy on this vid can hardly talk. Is it because he is scared of the bullshit he is pedaling?

    0 to 60 in a semi is important why? Drag racing off the line with a semi is the least important, biggest waste of time ever. 500 mile range is garbage when a traditional semi can go twice that. Parking is horrible as it is and there are no charging stations currently so this is going to make parking worse. Turning radius on that thing is going to be crap with how close trailer needs to be and the truck looks ugly as hell. I dont even wanna know the ridiculous price tag thing is going to ask for. I can also see repair issues being a major problem cause everything breaks no matter what some showman says about his junk it's going to break sooner or later.

    One thing a tesla can't do that a non EGR or dpf diesel can do is roll coal. Plus I'd rather hear the sound of an old 60 series Detroit, or a 3406 caterpillar. And I call complete B.S. that the Tesla will do 1,000,000 miles without Breaking down you're using electric motors from a car... And also a 2 cycle Detroit diesel or 3406 caterpillar, 60 series Detroit diesel, or any diesel engine that doesn't have a Dpf or EGR is better for the environment than electric vehicles, because of the batteries, so you hippies driving electric vehicles, know that when a diesel truck rolls coal, it is better for the environment than your electric pos. And as a truck mechanic, I'd much rather work on a diesel truck, than an electric truck. They're gonna be just like electric cars not have the range it states, and you'll never get the fire out when it catches fire. But, I can see some advantages to a battery powered semi, one it has 100% torque so it accelerates quickly between lights, well that's the only one I can think of actually so yeah, tesla semi, I don't think it will be as good as they say, but let's see.
