801GEARHEADZ | Tesla owners can now add semi-truck to the collection

So maybe that’s not Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s exact vision. That’s not stopping arguably the most technologically advanced brand in the automotive industry from creating it. At tonight’s VIP star-studded reveal party at Tesla’s design studio Elon rolled out on stage with what I like to imagine is a step closer to Optimus Prime becoming a reality.

More aerodynamic than a Bugatti Chiron

Musk says their semi-truck offering will go 0-60mph in 5 seconds. That’s high performance territory thanks to sharing parts with their “baby sedan” the Model 3. Think range is an issue? With a claimed 500 mile range fully loaded maintaining 65mph helps to continue Tesla’s mission to build a sustainable energy company. My V10 bimmer definitely doesn’t get near that range. Charging will require their “mega chargers”. Tesla guarantees the drive train for A MILLION MILES. Nobody’s touching that warranty.

Peep an early sketch of Tesla’s new workhorse. Watch out for giant completely silent semi-trucks coming up a street near you.
