Tesla Semi Truck Teaser

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is a very ambitious man with big plans for the car company he started. Did you know Tesla is working on an electric semi truck?

In an interview with TED organizer Chris Anderson, Musk revealed that Tesla will expand its car/ SUV lineup into heavy duty trucks, potentially forever changing the large truck industry.

The company’s truck will be revealed later in 2017, likely in September. He boasts it will “out-torque any diesel semi” and be agile “like a sports car.”

I don’t think anyone ever asked for a cargo hauling semi truck that handled like a sports car, but — hey! — why not?

It will be interesting to see how an electric semi truck impacts the shipping industry. but Tesla believes it will significantly reduce shipping costs.

Tesla might also be working on an electric pickup truck. Should Ford and General Motors be worried?

2020 Volvo XC40 Recharge Electric SUV

The Swedish automaker’s first all-electric vehicle offers 408 horsepower and 249 miles of driving range.

Volvo has taken the wraps off the XC40 Recharge, the first of many all-electric vehicles it has planned for the coming years.

The electric SUV looks nearly identical to the internal-combustion and hybrid XC40 variants, yet the lack of a grille makes it standout as the pure battery-powered EV of the lineup. It can also be ordered with a new color called Sage Green.

The elimination of the XC40’s combustion engine makes room for a little storage compartment under the hood. In other words, there is a frunk.

Electric motors mounted at each axle gives the XC40 Recharge 408 horsepower to work with, as well as all-wheel. The the battery pack, which can be recharged up to 80 percent capacity in 40 minutes when using a fast charger, delivers a driving range of up to 249 miles (400 kilometers) on Europe’s WLTP cycle.

Like the exterior, the interior is nearly identical to the other XC40 models, with the exception of the new Android-powered infotainment system, which includes Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play Store.

Volvo expects electric vehicles to account for half of its global sales by 2025, with hybrid models constituting the remainder. All electrified models — plug-in hybrids and EVs — will fall under the company’s ‘Recharge’ sub-brand.

Tesla electric pickup truck

The ‘cybertruck’ supposedly doesn’t look like the renderings we’ve seen online.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has dropped a few more hints about the company’s all-electric pickup, particularly that the Blade Runner-inspired truck is very different in appearance to the numerous speculative renderings that have popped up over the years.

“Cybertruck doesn’t look like anything I’ve seen bouncing around the Internet,” he wrote on Twitter. “It’s closer to an armored personnel carrier from the future.”

Previous comments by Musk also suggest it will have an electric powertrain that delivers “crazy torque” and impressive towing capabilities, a dynamic air suspension system, a rotating tailgate that drops very low to the ground, and 240-volt outlets for industrial equipment used by welders and other professionals.

The company even wants to sell the all-electric pickup truck for less than $50,000 so that it appeals to the mass market.

The Tesla pickup isn’t likely to enter production until after Tesla is able to produce the Model Y in high volume.
