Tesla, the world’s famous company for electric vehicles, unveiled the prototype of the electric truck. Its production will begin from 2019. The company has introduced a roadster car as well. These are presented by the company’s CEO Elon Musk at the US-based design studio.
Coming on the development, Tesla claims that the semi-electric truck is capable of attaining the speed of 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just 5 Seconds. Up to 40 Tons of weight can be carried on this truck. With a high payload capacity, it can move at the speed of up to 100 kilometers per hour.
The company’s CEO claims that this truck is the safest and comfortable truck. Its price is yet to be disclosed. Compared to diesel-powered trucks, the expenditure for the distance of 1 kilometer is less than 20%. Once the full charge is done, it can distance up to 800 Kilometers with maximum weight. And with the charge of 30 Minutes through a mega charger, it can travel up to 400 Kilometers. It has features such as automatic braking system and lane tracking in addition to a most advanced feature—its nuclear explosion-proof windshield glasses.
