Default Tesla

Tesla is launching electric semi's that will travel 500 miles in 2019.
Hopefully Tesla will look at making a jump into the RV market as well.
If it does then we could have all electric RV''s sooner rather than later.

I think Musk has to have his DNA tested, he is not from this earth. I truly did not believe that this was possible today.

I haven't seen anything that says how much battery they have in them or how much cargo capacity it costs them. That was one of the big ifs going into it all.

500 miles in 2019? They must not be finalized on it yet.

.

The truck must have swappable batteries.

There is no way a commercial vehicle can wait for a charge to complete.

Claimed 30 min / 400 miles, not bad.

Since Telsa is coming out with this big truck, I would suppose that the major truck stops will have chargers...and maybe for the battery operated cars. As time goes on, it will be interested in the critiques about revving speeds up and down and their affect on batteries. My 210 will be with me until the final ride, ha! Ron

I love Tesla, and do hope they come out with a cargo van that can be converted to a class B RV. I think that is coming in the next decade or so, but you have to remember that Tesla is currently struggling to meet their 400,000 reservations of the Model 3 small sedan, which are still being mostly hand built, though the robotic line will hopefully be up and running in the near future.

They're still a young company (by automotive measures) and have a lot on their plate. Musk is generally too optimistic with his timelines, but he still manages to deliver eventually. Looking forward to someday having an electric Class B.

I am surprised they did not do a pickup truck first.


but of course... the pickup truck is a lucrative market. It is the bread and butter and gravy of Ford and GM. If Tesla dares to touch this segment, they will be at the receiving end of a barrage of unrecoverable revenges.
