The world's best-known electric vehicle company Tesla has finally revealed the zero-emission vehicle it hopes will make the major inroads into the commercial freight market, unveiling its first electric truck in Los Angeles yesterday.
The Roadster has three motors (one in the front; two in the rear) and is capable of going 0-60mph in a stunning 1.9 seconds, with a top speed of over 250mph (402kph) and 620 mile range (998km or over 1000km as Musk puts it) at highway speeds.

The semi truck, called Tesla Semi, can go as far as 500 miles between charges and can haul 80,000 pounds at a time.
The Semi is a fully electric semi-truck, a bigger step into the broader transportation market by Elon Musk.

"This could present another distraction from really just making sure that the Model 3 is moved along effectively", said Bruce Clark, a senior vice president and automotive analyst at Moody's.
In describing the truck, Musk also said its windshield is made of "thermonuclear explosion-proof glass" - a feature he says will help truckers stay on the road. Demand for electric trucks is expected to grow over the next decade as the U.S., Europe and China all tighten their emissions regulations. The newest hauler is a mid-size transport vehicle and gets all the bells and whistles you would expect from a semi-truck, while packing in the autonomous driving technology too.
Only after talking about the truck's speed did Musk mention its range. It faces stiff competition from long-trusted brands like Daimler AG, which unveiled its own semi prototype last month. Torque sensors on the individual wheels, along with software that can correct steering, will make jackknifing impossible, Musk said.
