Can Tesla’s Electric Semi-Truck Transform the Trucking Industry?

Boasting 0 to 60 mph in a zippy five seconds (sans trailer) and a range of 500 miles, as well as autonomous driving features and a design unlike any truck that’s gone before, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, hopes the Tesla Semi will one day transform the long-haul trucking industry.

On Wednesday, Musk posted a photo showing a couple of the trucks embarking on their first-ever delivery run. The ride, which involves transporting battery packs between two Tesla facilities, covers a round-trip distance of just under 500 miles, so it could complete the trip on a single charge.
