During a late night, Tesla by its CEO Elon Musk, presented two new vehicles, the Tesla Semi, the electric truck of Tesla, and the new version of the first Tesla launched, the Tesla Roadster that will hit the roads somewhere in 2020.
The new Tesla Roadster is not just a car with a super-sporty look and not even a sports car, it happens that the Roadster is “the Sports Car”, because it is only the faster production vehicle ever in the world, achieving zero to 100 km/h in only 1.9 seconds, yeah, that’s right!
But this is not the only thing that makes the Tesla Roadster such a singular car, there is also the fact that car will have a range of about 1000 kilometers, on a highway, with a single charge, and is capable of reaching, more than 250 mph, that is only about 400 km/h.
The Roadster comes with three engines and a battery with a capacity of 250 kWh, and will cost 170 000 euros, and the reserve price for it is of more than 42 000 euros, and will arrive at the roads in 2020.
In addition to the incredible, elusive and revolutionary Roadster, Tesla has also officially introduced the new Tesla Semi, the truck of Elon Musk’s company, which also promises to revolutionize the goods transportation sector, the Tesla truck will be able to travel 800 km in the highway, and go from zero the 96 km/h in just 5 seconds unloaded, and 20 seconds with the trailer and 36 tons of cargo, impressive speed for the cargo volume.
The truck will start its production in 2019, but Tesla is already accepting reservations for it, and it still achieves speeds of around 100 km/h, even when the road goes up about 5%.
Tesla also showed in the screen during the presentation, its future pick-up, confirming again, that Elon Musk is a visionary and knows perfectly how to captivate the attention of his audience.
