Tesla has most of the electric vehicle market in its hands, with so much of its marketing hype winning over the world for all the right reasons, and soon it'll be an entirely different industry... the trucking industry.




Tesla will unveil their new electric semi-truck on October 26, with a new photo of the purported truck showing up on the internet today. Someone posted the photo of the Tesla electric semi-truck, which looks absolutely incredible. It looks super thin and contained, versus the beefy front of a normal semi-truck.


Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX has teased before that the entire unveiling event for the electric semi-truck is going to be "unreal". The semi-truck will, according to Musk "will deliver a substantial reduction in the cost of cargo transport, while increasing safety and making it really fun to operate".


Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jones has some confidence in Tesla's electric truck, saying it could sell 25,000 trucks per year to match the revenue from 70,000 Model 3 vehicles. If this is true, then Tesla would be hauling $7.5 billion from its semi-truck business very quickly.


Tesla will change the entire trucking industry with a fully electric semi-truck that is up to 70% cheaper than a standard semi-truck, which will save untold millions of dollars in maintenance costs, and more.
