Презентация беспилотного электрогрузовика Tesla пройдет в октябре
Tesla will show its electric truck with an autopilot on October 26, 2017 in the city of Horton, located in the state of California – this was reported by Business Insider with reference to Ilona Mask. In his tweet, the head of the companies Tesla and SpaceX reported that during the presentation the truck will be demonstrated in the case – the test run of the car will take place.
"The beast is worth seeing with your own eyes. This is something unreal, "he wrote in a post on the upcoming demonstration.
Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride tentatively scheduled for Oct 26th in Hawthorne. Worth seeing this beast in person. It's unreal.

For the first time the truck started talking last fall, but its first images were published only in June this year. To look at them is difficult, because Tesla continues to keep intrigue, protecting the novelty from premature leaks. For the same reason, no one yet knows about the technical features of the truck.
It is assumed that its power reserve on one battery charge will be about 400 kilometers. Yes, this is four times less than a conventional diesel-fueled truck, but the Tesla electric truck may well be suitable for regional flights for short distances, because they account for up to forty percent of all American shipments.
Nevertheless, these calculations are based on the available information on the batteries that are currently used in Tesla. But it is very likely that during the presentation some new details will be revealed, and therefore it is premature to speak about a small reserve of progress.
