Tesla reveals semi-truck and new sports car
piątek, 17 listopada 2017 14:07

You'll often hear automakers brag of a sports car's zero-to-60 performance but less often for a big-rig truck. Tesla boasted of both. Tesla revealed an all-new version of its Roadster sports car that can go from a stop to 60 miles an hour in 1.9 seconds, a figure that would make it the fastest-accelerating production car ever. That was after Tesla unveiled its new semi-truck, which CEO Elon Musk said can go zero-to-60 in five seconds with an empty trailer. That's a figure usually associated with luxury sedans, not big trucks. With a full load, the truck can still reach that speed in 20 seconds, according to Musk, much faster than any diesel-powered truck.
