Elon Musk teases Tesla’s electric semi-truck at TED talk

By : |April 29, 2017 0

Speaking at 2017 TED Conference in Vancouver, Tesla CEO Elon Musk shed light on many of his companies’ ongoing project that included tunnelling work and a forthcoming electric semi-truck.

The CEO showed a shadowy image that gave us a glimpse of a vehicle which is unlike any other Tesla on the road currently. The truck with a smooth continuous design between the windshield and the upper facade has headlights that resemble the ones used on existing Tesla cars, including the Model X and Model S.

Apparently, Musk confirmed at the talk that a working prototype is already operational and that he’s had the opportunity to test drive one, saying it “feels like a sports car.” He also said the truck will be capable of long hauls, though he didn’t elaborate on its estimated range.

Meanwhile, Musk also said that there will be likely four new Gigafactory sites announced this year. This is also something Tesla has touched on before; the company said in its most recent earnings report that it plans to finalise locations for up to three new Gigafactory sites this year, in addition to the existing Nevada location, and the New York plant for solar technology it’s operating in partnership with Panasonic.
