Tesla’s New Truck


Tesla’s stock is on a tear right now. It is market fever? Or is the company’s exciting pipeline of products spurring the rise? Well, a tease from Elon Musk at last Friday’s TED talk is sure to ruffle electric feathers further. With a dramatic teaser image of the upcoming Tesla semi truck, we can begin to imagine the electric future of the big rig. And it’s coming none too early, with problems of efficiency and emissions. We can picture an all-electric semi truck driving down our roads in a much quieter, cleaner, and more efficient fashion. The semi truck’s cargo capacity would be perfect for battery storage, and the long-haul nature of trucking is great for Tesla’s autonomous future. Via Electrek:
