Elon Musk Just Teased The First Image Of The Tesla Semi Truck

1 May

FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN’T HEARD, Tesla has been working on a big rig truck and just teased their first image of it. Seems like a likely evolution for the company’s vehicle efforts, and I think it would likely be a game changer, so to speak.  Think of the billions of dollars spend on billions of gallons of diesel fuel, and how that adds to the cost of getting goods shipped all over the U.S.  Think of how much diesel emissions add to climate change, too.

Any speculative sketching of Tesla’s truck (to be unveiled in September) will have some basics, guaranteed: an extremely aerodynamic shape, for starters.  Plenty of space for massive battery packs (and they’ll have to be massive, for the distances semi-trucks travel).  One thing not mentioned is solar panels – the amount of space on the top of a semi-trailer plus how much time in daylight is spent on the road should mean some sort of solar energy/recharging ability would be a no-brainer.
