  • Elon Musk introduces Tesla's new all electric long-haul shipping truck and surprise, a new roadster the company says could go as fast as 250 miles per hour.

    On Thursday night, Elon Musk rolled out Tesla's biggest gizmo yet: a fully electric semitruck. The Semi can go a whopping 500 miles between charges, hauling 80,000 pounds along the way. And it can sorta, kinda drive itself—on highways, anyway. The truck comes with Enhanced Autopilot, the second generation of Tesla's semiautonomous technology, equipped with automatic braking, lane keeping, and lane departure warnings.

    After the Tesla CEO spent half an hour onstage extolling the virtues of his new electric 18-wheeler, he stepped away and the lights went out. Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” came on the loudspeakers, and then the new Roadster rolled out of the very Semi he had just introduced, ripping around the massive lot where the trucks had been just a moment earlier.

    An electric Semi Truck? Great! That means they'll be forced to sleep and can't overwork themselves to being extra tired on the road. Sounds promising.

    The truck may be reliable, but the battery won't be reliable since battery is consumable goods.
