    I would like to know the turn radius of this truck, any trucker knows the main benefit of a daycab truck is usually it has a shorter wheel base and can make much tighter turns and get into tighter areas to make deliveries, very useful when delivering into urban areas; for example: New York and its burrows, Chicago, etc. Driving a full size semi with a sleeper cab into areas like these are doable, but can be a nightmare.

      “A nightmare” is putting it lightly lol.
      There’s nothing worse than seeing “New Jersey” on the preload… but as you said it is doable, but i imagine there are a lot of places around that simply can’t accommodate a full size truck but this certainly wouldn’t hurt anything in that regard…

      @Brian B-P I was just at Giga Austin delivering parts for the new semi assembly line. It wasn't even built yet. But they are working around the clock on it. This semi is being purpose built for metropolitan areas and major cities to reduce carbon footprint. This is also the same plan for electric vehicles such as cars. I'm on board with that idea. But if you trying to come take my job as a regional tractor trailer driver, we are going to have some problems. Especially when Tesla told me that I could not have one of these trucks because my company isn't large enough.

      The turning radius will be the same as any other truck of the same wheelbase, but of course they don't give the wheelbase. Although it is only a daycab, the "500 mile" version is extended to accommodate more battery, so it has the length of a short sleeper cab.

      haulage companies dont give a crap about infotainment or cup holders. you get paid by load and time and this can only carry half of what a diesel truck can and takes twice as long.

    The telsa semis should have a heads-up display. It keeps the drivers eyes looking straight ahead and improves comfort instead of looking to the side screens. Also all teslas should implement hud's.

    Good job Tesla and team, beautiful and well done car. I see that you had put a lot of sweat and hours and it paid off.
    Even if your face don’t appear on the video, to you my fellow engineers:
    I’m proud of you!!.

      What do you want solid evidence for? HIS HYPER TUBE BEING A COMPLETE AND UTTER FAILURE?
      His fake solar tiles that he lied about when they didnt exist?
      His trucks by 2017?
      His self driving car?
      His stupid idea to take all the worlds space payloads to space once every two years?
      You will notice these didnt happen and his plans where absolute stupid! most of which just need common sense!

      My Opinion we all know at some point in time this vehicle will have mechanical issues such as a simple battery failure just remember it will cost you or a company $ 70K for a battery replacement plus installment cost in the thousands.. These underlined cost itself is proof of a very bad investment regardless of the hype by Tesla . The question is how many of you will be so misinformed..

    The presentation was pretty good but I felt some things were missing and so I re-watch the 2017 one. Many features promised are missing. Its pretty disappointing when watched compared to 2017. 2017 really now seems like over hyping and maybe even lying just to get investors.

    THE REAL ZENFORCE 2 months ago +1

    I remember the 2017 presentation, "we can do it now" (FSD on EV semi trucks) and will deliver Tesla semi trucks in 2019. In less than one month we are 2023, 4 years late.
    What is the exact cargo load capacity in lbs/kg, and at full cargo load capacity what is the total range in one charge, also the cost of the semi-truck, abondance and cost of the 1MW charger, total ownership costs for the truck's lifecycle are probably the most important questions professionals have for the truck, how fast the truck does 0-60mph or wireless charging is of the lowest importance for a freight company

  • Martí Calonge
    Martí Calonge 2 months ago +15

    In that real world test, it looks like there are around 12-14 600kg boxes. Which would be around 7200-8400kg of load... Could Tesla give some numbers on how much the truck weights and what's the max load it can carry?

      @paradigmshift7 Dude its the semi unveil of 2017. Google tesla semi 2017 and its the first that pops up. But fine I'll spell it out for you look Tesla Semi & Roadster Unveil up on this same channel. I'm not talking about what others wrote in articles but what Elon stated himself in the reveal. Whats a confirmed promise? Does he have to say it promised or does saying something like it will call 911 when your not responsive as part of the standard just salesmanship? When he shows that the armored glass can withstand much greater impact then standard glass in a his presentation isn't that a claim that the glass is much stronger then standard glass of other semi? Sure calling it armored is salemanship but there is a claim within the salemanship
      If your best defense is that he said thinks that aren't legally binding then that means your fine with some of the worst practices of sales. An action can be legal but also shady, deceptive or shitty.
      Like seriously were you purposefully being dense I mean just googling "tesla semi 2017" and the event I'm talking about is what pops up in by far the greatest number or videos talking about that event. I thought it was incredibly obvious thats why I never clarified.

    • paradigmshift7
      paradigmshift7 2 months ago

      @Alex Sander Dude you're all over the place. There's a number of events in 2017, which one? I'm not going to watch them, you can't even tell me what you're complaining about *exactly*, so how can even I verify by watching the event, and *which* event? We've also discussed the timelines ad nauseam.
      What's reported on the news and articles is often not what is actually promised either.
      You are complaining about things you can't even confirm was promised, or what was actually promised. It sounds more like your problem is with the salesmanship, and that is part of selling your product, everyone does it. You've just illustrated it yourself citing video games. There are also things called adjectives as well, many of them are left to the reader's interpretation, and can't be confirmed quantitatively.
      "armored" glass
      "action packed" adventure video game
      "buttery" popcorn
      Usually the only things that are official and legally binding as to what you're actually getting is in the bill of sale, that's it. I don't know what else to tell you at this point.

    • Alex Sander
      Alex Sander 2 months ago

      @paradigmshift7 All I'm saying is watch the 2017 event. He doesn't "promise" he making claims of what the semi can do. The only hyperbole was that the glass can survive a nuke. He never said it was bullet proof but he did claim it was armored. The tesla site doesn't list that feature the site doesn't list most of the claims he made in 2017. He might have never actually lied but he implied that a lot of the features were ready now and one the truck he had show cased. Now since he didn't say it directly he didn't lie but that implication is deceptive in my opinion. Maybe he will be able to slowly release those features years after the semi is in production but to me that is no different for when a video game makes claims and has to fix the issues or add features after they sold them.

Other channels like JerryRigEverything and Engineering Explained are also pretty good when they cover Tesla-related subjects.

      The Rocinante, A lot of people think that 1,000 volt battery, then 1,000 volt charger running DC power into the truck. Do they have to do that? Or can they do something that will be easier? Such as feeding the truck 3,000 volt AC 3 phase power, then convert that power to DC to actually charge the battery on the truck.
      The power cord they showed off has 8 wires to conduct the power, and two cooling lines inside the outer covering, to keep the wires from getting to hot. To get 1,000,000 watts at 1,000 volts is 1,000 amps. That is a lot of amps. Changing to 3 phase and 3,000 volts, that can reduce the amperage to a much easier to manage 200 amps.

      @David Akin wow, what an absurd response. First of all, I'm all for reducing emissions and improving the environment - but this does neither of those things for several reasons, here are two big ones:
      1) If this doesn't make good sense for the trucking industry (which you so casually dismissed) then adoption will be dismally low, doing nothing for the environment.
      2) If you need 3x as many trucks to haul the same amount of cargo that means you're regularly charging batteries for a whole lot of trucks. Batteries which are ultimately powered by carbon emitting power stations.
      But yeah, you keep stroking Elon's ego all you want buddy. These things are a pipe dream and Elon is conning all of you.

    • David Akin

      @Ryhanon Typical Hyperactive American response with a mix of attention deficit disorder. Elon Musk motivation and purpose of developing the Electric Cars & Trucks is to reduce carbon emissions to improve the environment, and not the "Trucking Industry" per se. As I stated, this is an Industrial Game Changer in terms of safety, efficiency, and environmental quality, and if you missed that you obviously have attention deficit disorder. Get diagnosed please.

    What is fascinating is how the regen breaking was almost able to nulify the presence of hills on the test run graph. So, the efficiency over the entire trip was practically the same as the efficiency over just the flat part of the journey. This will probably remain true regardless of the peak elevation during the trip, if the starting and ending locations have similar elevation.
    Truly remarkable :)

    All it takes is someone with just basic knowledge of the trucking industry to look at the design of this thing to see it was built by people that are clueless... That thing will be a living nightmare an any backup other than straight line back with the drivers seating position. Instead of having 1 blind side back they will both be blind side..
    I'd love to see the scale ticket for it's 82,000 gross weight 500 mile trip.. There is no way it made axle or bridge law weight. I also love how the weight of the tractor is basically classified. 🤣😂. With every other EV being far heavier than their ICE counterparts there is no doubt it's much heavier. Especially when it's WELL documented EV loses almost if not half or more of it's range towing a load. Being a commercial vehicle tows far more weight it's only going to compound it.. Being the average EV battery is half or more of the vehicle the battery in this thing has to be enormous..
    The 500 mile trip this thing made was in ideal conditions in ideal weather, even then it still went 160 miles less than a driver can drive a diesel in a day and carried less freight.. Something else that seems to be classified is the charging time..🤣😂.. If a Tesla plaid with WAY smaller battery takes 15+ hours to fully charge from 10% to get peak range just think how long the massive battery in this thing is going to take to get ultimate battery life.. My guess is WELL over a day, just to do less work and haul less than a diesel.
    Reading the comments here it appears to me that not only are the designer's clueless, but the people commenting are also clueless and have probably never even seen the inside of a diesel commercial truck much less set in and drove one..
    Don't even have to go into the severe lack of infrastructure that will take decades and trillions of dollars to support EV semi or the already strained electric grid for anyone that doesn't have their head so far up Elon's azz they can taste his breath mints to see how moronic this is...

    The average haulage journey for artic trucks in the UK is 150km so that battery length of 500mil smashes that but a two way journey London to Scotland is 400-500 miles so would be cutting it fine. Important part would be being able to recharge and start to turn back. Obviously drivers can only drive for a certain amount of time but they should be able to drive up, charge quick enough and start heading back ?

    • Christopher Smith
      Christopher Smith Month ago

      The real life range is not 500 miles.
      It can possibly be 500 miles if you don't carry a heavy load and run the battery to 0 miles. In real terms, the lorry will be running down to 30% if you want to save the battery life. That's 350 miles.
      Now throw on a heavier load of cargo. Well..300 miles. Now we need expensive infrastructure to charge these energy demanding trucks. Expensive and challenging for the grid. We're far from what we thought the truck is.

    • SMHN
      SMHN 2 months ago

      Sorry I mean a journey from London to Scotland is 4-500 miles each way so that's why you would be cutting it fine in one hit and then want to turn around and head back making it a two way journey you would need to charge but would the charge time be efficient enough for you to start to head back within the allotted driving hours a trucker can drive

      @UCljtPW_f50VsRhIXN6vP6KA I agree. All challenges.
      What's interesting is that Tesla built out 40,000 super chargers over the past decade, so it's obviously an embedded cost in their operating model.
      Perhaps their supercharger build out with the new Semi ecosystem technology has given them the courage and smarts to get others, customers, more involved in this infrastructure cost?
      A significant strategic component of Tesla next to their automobiles is their super charging infrastructure. No one. Absolutely no one is close to having that super charging ecosystem and it's a significant competitive advantage.

    • P A

      @Ballerheiko Tesla has 40,000 Super Chargers around the globe.
      I have full confidence Mega Chargers will be constructed by fleet truck operators like PepsiCo and many others.
      I'm hopeful Tesla, with the Semi, will give insights on how the Cybertruck can deal with towing problems that have been demonstrated in other EV trucks this year (Ford Lightning, Rivian, etc.).

    • P A
      P A 2 months ago

      @Ballerheiko Go and actually watch the video YOU sent a link to. Jason shows mathematically how an electric semi operating cost ALONE is half that of a diesel semi. Ignore the performance and self driving, and ignore that a Tesla.semi has 1/5 the breakable maintenance parts of a diesel semi, and this is game changing tech.
      Oh and an EV semi will reduce emissions by 80%. Semis comprise 20% of all emissions, so, YES, the Tesla Semi will also make a huge dent in emissions reductions.
      I'm NOT a tree hugger.
      I own a Porsche 911 and a Mercedes, but I also have a Tesla Performance Model S.
      Tesla is a game changer.
      Enjoy your equivalent horse and buggy tech. Gas cars, SUVs, and trucks only make sense for long distance driving.
      Tesla Semi and fleet-operated Mega Chargers will change trucking in the next decade. The cost benefit alone will drive adoption. [THIS IS ALL IN THE VIDEO you TOLD ME TO WATCH, Dr Von Braun].

      Even if many private owners are reluctant at first, the fleet purchases for spoke operations are certain. The financial incentives are huge with a three year pay back just from energy and service savings alone.

    • Christopher Smith
      Christopher Smith Month ago

      Slam dunk? Explain. There are a whole load of big question marks with this.
      500 miles? Well... 500 if you run the truck from 100% down to 0%. What if I carry a heavier load and want to save the battery life? Then keep the battery life above 30% so realistically 300 miles is the range.
      What is the cost of fleets to install charging infrastructure to charge 1000volt batteries and how much energy does each truck consume? Existing charging stations with the capacity of charging these things in less than an hour is time simply not readily available.
      Pretty important information because I can tell you it is very expensive to set these things up. And what about long haul? Tesla simply are not long haul because who will pay for these charging stations on the highways and how long will it take to set them up?? It is a bit of a pipe dream. I like what Hyliion are doing. Natural gas is a better alternative at rhe moment. No excessive batteries with demanding charging. No need for expensive charging infaustracture that will become obsolete the moment greener fuels become cost effective and available. The upfront cost of owning a tesla truck is high. It is pointless if you need to charge during a journey and fleets will almost certainly need to install their own expensive v4 charging stations. It will take a long time to get a return on investment if you buy tesla trucks for long haul, slightly less if you buy them for shorter haul. But in the states and europe, they're interested in 700+ miles range and fast refilling. Tesla is not there yet.

      @Carlos Gonzalez There a tons of videos with fluent intersting flamboyant presenters who say nothing at all a they know nothing about the shit they talk about. You are free to search and enjoy them. 😜😂🤷‍♂️

      He always wants to make sure, the important systematic benefits are talked about and not the marketing speech about the product. So sometimes he searches for words to find the right way to get that across. I really like his way of thinking and presenting too.
