Tesla CEO Elon Musk rode in with revelations about his company's all-electric Semi truck, but walked off with an even bigger surprise: a new version of the Tesla Roadster that breaks records for speed and range. The new Roadster - a revamp of the original Tesla roadster launched in 2008 - can travel 620 miles on a single charge and has a top speed of 250 miles an hour.
The Tesla Semi truck going into production in 2019 will boast 500 miles of range, while the Roadster, available a year later, will be the fastest production auto ever made, said Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Shares of the electric vehicle maker rose almost 3% in opening trading Friday after the company rolled out Tesla Semi, an electric-powered big rig truck with a 500-mile range.
Thanks to four independent drive trains, the Semi should be capable of accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in 20 seconds with an 80,000-pound load.
Between this and potentially lower costs to maintain the trucks, Tesla boasts a strong chance of disrupting the trucking business, said Evercore analyst George Galliers in a note to investors. The semi, which is set to start production in 2019, is accepting pre-orders for $5,000 apiece. It's modern, futuristic and certainly packs in the right levels of flowing lines to look suave, for a truck of course. The question remains whether the company can keep up with demand for its electric vehicles (Model 3 owners are still waiting to get their cars). Well Tesla has a new one out and it's even quicker than any other Tesla now in the market. "It probably is, based on the specs provided, but this isn't necessarily a slam dunk".
All Tesla Semi models come with Enhanced Autopilot to help avoid collisions, plus its centred driver position ensures maximum visibility and control, and a low centre of gravity prevents rollovers. Tesla was offering test drives to individuals at yesterday's event who put down a $50,000 deposit on the Roadster without knowing the full price.

Musk didn't reveal the semi's price. "So far, that final element has eluded Tesla Motors, which makes it hard to see these vehicles as more than "what if" concept cars". Musk said several Tesla semis will be able to travel in a convoy, autonomously following each other. The Semi also comes with regenerative braking for improved brake life, while there is no need to shift gears on this truck, which should make it convenient for drivers.
"From a purely economic perspective, if Tesla's cost of ownership stats prove accurate in practice, Tesla's Semi has a strong chance of taking significant share", he said.
"While Tesla's truck announcement will unquestionably create a lot of buzz, the company has incorrectly aimed its sights", he said.
