Tesla: Electric truck to come only 320 to 480 km

Friday, August 25th, 2017 | Gadgets

Tesla CEO Elon Musk had announced in 2016 in his master plan to develop a semitrailer with electric drive. In April he twittered that the vehicle will be presented in September 2017. Now it's almost time.

According to a report from the Reuters news agency, the truck will have a range of between 200 and 300 miles. This corresponds to about 320 to 480 km. This was revealed by Scott Perry, CEO of the fleet management company Ryder, the news agency. Diesel trucks come with a tank filling in the USA well over 1,000 kilometers.
Perry claimed that Tesla wants to build his electric truck without a cab behind the cab. This would not make any sense if the vehicle is intended only for short distances. According to Reuters, however, 30 percent of US truck drivers are used on such short distances.
Tesla is obviously testing the saddle truck in Nevada. According to Reuters, this is the result of an e-mail conversation between the company and the traffic authority, the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). In the mails, a meeting with representatives of Tesla and the DMV was also prepared.

The systems for highly automated driving are also to allow for platooning, the partly autonous driving in the convoy. In doing so, several trucks are joined together to form a convoy, whereby they each as close as possible to the preceding vehicle. The first vehicle takes the tour and determines direction and speed. All maneuvers are given by the leader to the others in the platoon. Driving in the wind shadows should increase the range.
