Tesla has started customer deliveries of its Class 8 all-electric Semi truck, revealing a few new things about its powertrain. According to the manufacturer, the Tesla Semi "is a beast" with a total power output three times higher than in the case of any diesel truck on the road. However, Tesla does not say the exact peak or continuous power output number.
The Tesla Semi is equipped with a new tri-motor system, which consists of three independent electric motors and is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph (96.5 km/h) in just 20 seconds when fully loaded (82,000 lbs/37,195 kg). This is an incredible feat for an electric truck, and it's made possible by the fact that there are no transmission or drivetrain losses. The only downside is that the Tesla Semi requires a longer braking distance than a diesel truck.
The tri-motor system also enables the Tesla Semi to climb 5% grades at a steady 65 mph (105 km/h), which is again something that no diesel truck can match. When it comes to range, the Tesla Semi can travel 500 miles (805 km) on a single charge at highway speeds with a full load. This number will decrease to 400 miles (644 km) if the truck is driving in city traffic.
The Tesla Semi is a beast of a truck that is sure to revolutionize the transportation industry. With its tri-motor system and incredible range, the Tesla Semi is poised to make electric trucks the new standard. If you're in the market for a new truck, be sure to check out the Tesla Semi! You won't be disappointed.
