New Tesla Truck
By: Fedora Atjeh | Oktober 03, 2017
Tesla will present its first truck on October 26, as announced by the company's CEO Elon Musk a few weeks ago on his Twitter account. Expected to leave the SpaceX factory in Hawthorne and there are many expectations placed on it.
Musk published a teaser photo of his prototype truck, and today an Internet user has hunted a test mule or prototype that could be the Tesla truck. By the forms of the body fits with the teaser image and also was in an airfield where Tesla usually test their cars.
This is the same aerodrome where the Tesla Model S was first seen, and there Tesla could be tuning the last details of his truck before presenting it in partnership.
Regarding the technical characteristics of this truck, obviously there are still no official data. It should be a product aimed at medium-distance travel with a radius of between 150 and 320 kilometers. The long distance does not seem feasible at the moment.
It would make sense that this be so if we consider that 30% of the total of the routes that the trucks make in the United States move in that radius.
This has led to speculation about the autonomy that the Tesla truck should offer, which is estimated to be between 350 and 400 kilometers. We will leave doubts in a few days about whether this is what we see in the photo and about the technical characteristics
