I gotta admit, it's not a good-looking truck, and it will probably be way more expensive than its competitors. I did like the new Roadster tho.

Apparently it can go up to 500 miles on highway, with a 300 miles version coming as well. I am currently working on a business plan for a distribution cooperative involving the use of electric delivery vehicles so this is incredible news. In barely a year since I first started working around the idea the amount of electric industrial vehicles in the market has been constantly increasing, they are no longer small vans with barely 100 miles of autonomy, in a few years it might be possible to make fully electric nationwide semi-trailer deliveries. Mercedes has been experimenting too with, I belive, hydrogen and electric propulsion for heavy trucks for some years now, so this will probably still take time to catch on but it's nonetheless another proof that the future of automotion in every of its aspects is in the use of alternative power batteries, a future that is closer everyday.

Truck looks ugly as sin, however that shouldn't matter because its all for transport. The Roadster looks pretty slick if you ask me. Crazy numbers to.

 

PS at first i though it was a typo, BUT HOLY sh*t, base model roadster will be only $200.000. Thats cheap as hell.

That's the sacrifice you have to make for low drag and higher range, especially with something so gigantic :catloaf:

there's a reason why most modern vehicles look the same :p

 

My personal opinion, it doesn't look that bad, especially for supposedly having such a low drag coefficient. Definitely breaks the mold for a traditional american big rig, but I think its a step in the right direction

The low drag is impressive. I think the design is pretty interesting and will probably look a lot better in person. It's not really that ugly. The seating position is also pretty unique but I'm not sure if it's necessary. How can drivers benefit from that position?

Beter view, its more natural to sit in the middle. Thats also why F1 cars don't have their driver sitting on the side pods.

As innovative as this is, diesel trucks will beat it in one important category: price tag

Yeah, until more truck makers start taking serious steps towards the electric path prices will probably continue being one of its main drawbacks, pretty much like happens with every other product related to the concept of enviromental sustentability.

My first thought was "Amazon will be the first to buy a couple of those" and probably DHL or Fedex will the next years.

I thought so too, but it turns out Walmart and J.B Hunt were the first to bite.

i read that the guy was secretly working on brain implants. the guy would be making a kind of fixation about AI, and being dominated by machines. don't know if it's true, but it looks like a person that has slid into crazyness

SCS is at least considering, and judging by the comments, they're likely to do it.

This whole thing really looks like something off of iRobot. Side note: This guy's also working on transport UNDERNEATH Los Angeles, and vacuum sealed tubes to transport pods of people instead of public transportation. What a world.
