It has been the mission of Tesla to achieve two things in the last few years. First, the company said that it wanted to change the way people generate electricity at their homes. Second, the company announced that it wanted to reinvent the automobile industry. Even before the company has had the chance to achieve this, it has set out another ambitious goal. They recently announced that they want to change the multibillion-dollar truck industry. This announcement was made in a remarkable fashion by Elon Musk, who is the chief executive of the company. At the same time, the announcement was made on Thursday. Elon Musk appeared on stage with a prototype of the diesel truck that they are embarking on.
He said that with the new truck, there would be no emission as the vehicle will battery-powered. At the same time, Tesla wants the new vehicle to be self-driving. The aim here is to develop an efficient truck that will cost and consume less compared to the present diesel trucks. This was not an indication that the company had left the car business. This came after Musk said that they would develop a new model known as Tesla Roadstar. He further elaborated that the vehicle would be able to travel a distance of 620 miles before it can recharge. At the same, time, Elon Musk said that the vehicle could accelerate to 60 miles per hour in a period of less than 1.9 seconds. Elon Musk told his audience that this would be the first car in the world to accelerate to 60 miles per hour in less than two seconds. Mr. Musk was wearing a green canvas jacket when addressing the audience.
He was also in jeans. He was addressing a crowd that seemed to love everything that he said. He told the 2,000 people attending the show that with the new car, it would be possible to drive to San Francisco from Los Angeles and back. As for the truck, it will be able to travel for 500 miles before it can recharge. This came as a surprise to many experts as they had predicted a smaller single-charge range. Tesla also said that the truck could go 60 miles per hour in five seconds. This would happen when the truck was carrying a weight of 80,000 pounds. The trucks will begin mass production by the end of 2019.
