Tesla is popping after its semi truck and roadster announcements (TSLA)
Nov 18, 2017, 00:53
Elon Musk's company Tesla has revealed its eagerly anticipated heavy goods vehicle and an unexpected sports auto, both of which run on electric power.
Here are the stats that Musk used to back up his claim: It'll go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 1.9 seconds, and from zero to 100 in 4.2 seconds.
After Tesla's false event ending, lights dimmed and a new Tesla Roadster rolled out of the back of a Tesla Semi cargo bay to the tune of Renegades of Funk by Rage Against the Machine.
The first 1,000 Roadsters will cost $250,000 each, paid in full upfront, with later models starting at $200,000.
The Tesla Semi won't go into production until 2019, but Tesla founder Elon Musk said the lorry will be cheaper to run than a diesel alternative and will travel up to 500 miles at maximum weight at motorway speeds.
Tesla is far from alone in trying to electrify semi trucks.
The Semi is expected to go into production in 2019.
Not related to the semi news, the analyst lessens his 2018 EPS expectations from ($0.89) to ($1.25) due to delayed Model 3 margin leverage along with corporate expenses while maintaining his forecast looking for a 95% year-over-year surge in revenue to $23 billion. The question remains whether the company can keep up with demand for its electric vehicles (Model 3 owners are still waiting to get their cars).
Elon Musk surprises everyone with a new Roadster.
The Tesla Semi boasts what Musk called a "thermonuclear explosion-proof" windshield that won't shatter.
Mr Musk is involved in many other projects and announced plans he says could allow his SpaceX company to colonise Mars in September. Plaid is of course Tesla's next level of acceleration, paying homage to Space Balls the movie, that goes beyond Ludicrous mode.

Suggested retail price is $200,000, Tesla said. "So far, that final element has eluded Tesla Motors, which makes it hard to see these vehicles as more than "what if" concept cars".
Krebs added: "In contrast to Tesla's current buyer bases, the priority for truck drivers and fleet operators is reliability and up-time. This could present another distraction from really just making sure that the Model 3 is moved along effectively", said Bruce Clark, a senior vice president and automotive analyst at Moody's. And charging even a mid-sized truck would likely require a two-hour stop, cutting into companies' efficiency and profits, says Brian Irwin, managing director of the North American industrial group for the consulting firm Accenture. "A more appropriate target for the electric-vehicle maker would be the short-haul, or so-called last-mile delivery, which would benefit from regenerative braking, low noise and emission-free EV motoring".
