On September 14, Musk tweeted that Tesla Electric Truck Semi will be unveiled and tested in Hawthorne, California on October 26. Musk did not disclose the details. As far as the current news is concerned, it is reported that Semi has a range of 321-483 kilometers. Prior to this, Musk praised this electric truck endlessly: "like a sports car", "reduce freight costs", "add security".

The upcoming Semi is going to subvert the freight industry. For example, in the United States, behind a series of Amazon packages, there are 1.7 million truck drivers running back and forth. In the United States, 70% of cargo is delivered to trucks. For every 10.5 billion tons of cargo transported, there are 35 billion truck drivers. However, the cost of using medium and heavy trucks is that greenhouse gas emissions account for 23% of the total U.S. transportation sector. In addition, heavy trucks have high fuel consumption. With the continuous rise of oil prices in recent years, operating costs have also increased a lot.(Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment)

If the electric truck can be successfully developed, it will undoubtedly have a profound impact on the industry. For example, the test shows that compared with the diesel version, the pure electric version of Daimler eCanter can save about 1000 euros (about 7618 yuan) in operating costs per 10000 km, and reduce about 30% in maintenance costs. Tesla Semi, Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas is optimistic about its prospects, pointing out that Semi can reduce operating costs by 70%.

However, the overall cost and efficiency are the important factors for Tesla's new energy trucks to successfully open the market. If a researcher has calculated an account for Musk's electric truck, according to the current price and existing battery technology, the cost is between 290000 and 450000 dollars (about 1.97 million yuan to 3.06 million yuan), which is higher than 120000 dollars (about 820000 yuan) for diesel.

There are laws in the United States that stipulate that the total weight of the truck cannot exceed 40 tons. The researchers take into account the weight of the battery pack, the cab, the trailer and the wheels. They estimate that a 600 mile Tesla truck can only load 9 tons of goods, which is two-thirds of the current average payload of 16 tons. Therefore, although electricity saves operating costs and fuel costs, I'm afraid Tesla Semi must also solve the efficiency problem.

Analyst Adam Jonas estimated that Tesla Semi would sell for $100000. The ultimate value for money depends on how much breakthrough Tesla can make in battery technology. It is worth looking forward to the appearance of this truck and whether it still has the ability of automatic driving.

Now, it is time to overturn the old freight market. No matter Tesla and other technology giants, traditional car companies, or even start-ups, are trying to revolutionize the freight market with electrification or automation.

Last September, Mitsubishi FUSO, which has been "rolling" in the field of commercial new energy for many years, demonstrated a light electric truck eCanter. The truck has an expected range of more than 100km (62 miles), can carry 2 to 3 tons (4000-6000 pounds), and can be fully charged with a DC fast charger within 1 hour.

In addition, last year Mercedes Benz launched the UrbaneTrack electric concept truck, which Mercedes Benz wants to use to replace short haul diesel trucks. ETrack has a range of 124 miles (about 200 kilometers) and can carry up to 57320 pounds of cargo. At present, Mercedes Benz is discussing with 20 potential customers about testing the truck on German roads, and they plan to put it on the market by 2020.

Compared with Musk's ambition, the first goal is to bypass the electric semi-trailer of the whole country. Traditional car enterprises such as Daimler adopt a conservative approach, taking light trucks and taking the lead in mass production as the policy. After all, the development of battery technology will take time. Finally, Daimler wants to launch a complete set of electric trucks, including heavy trucks. There are also Nikola, a pioneering enterprise that innovates and uses hydrogen power to blaze new trails. For details, please refer to the 10 projects that 36 krypton has counted before and will overturn the freight industry.

These are the future, and it may be several years before they are realized. Analysts predict that Tesla Semis will be sold from 2020. However, once Musk Semi solved the battery problem on October 26, it is only a matter of time before the electric freight industry as a whole can move forward.
