The Tesla Semi – The New Must Have For Big Business?
The electric semi truck from Tesla is simply called the Tesla Semi. Its design is slick, and looks more futuristic than most trucks out today. It is also fast, going from 0 to 60 mph in just 5 seconds (Unloaded that it). There’s more to the truck though than just being an electric one.
As with most electric vehicles, the Tesla Semi does not require any gears to shift. Handling and responsiveness are much better than its diesel counterparts, claimed by Tesla.
The Tesla Semi isn’t the only electric truck in the works. Bosch and Nikola are also building a truck with a hybrid hydrogen power supply. Daimler also has a concept for an electric truck.
One of the selling points for the Tesla Semi is that it will cost less to operate than diesel trucks. This would be a winner for any business which is looking to maximize profits while minimizing costs.
Maintenance would also cost much less than traditional trucks. This would be for the long term though. Initially, the cost for an electric truck might be much more than diesel trucks. This initial cost though would be offset by maintenance savings later on.
