Tesla Charges Up to $250000 for Resurrected Roadster Sports Car

Tesla Charges Up to $250000 for Resurrected Roadster Sports Car

Walmart has already ordered 15 Tesla Semi trucks, which will be used in the USA and Canada.

"We met with Tesla and at this time we do not see a fit with their product and our fleet", Dave Bates, senior vice president of operations, said in an email to the news agency Reuters, without elaborating. Elon got around the fact that the Tesla Semi has considerably less range than a conventional semi truck by emphasizing the need for truckers to rest and the potential to charge at truck stops, but that may not be a strong enough argument for some buyers.

The truck will have Tesla's Autopilot framework, which can keep up a saved speed and back off naturally according to the movement of traffic.

But the semi also piles on more chaos at the Palo Alto, California-based company.

Tesla is limiting availability of Founders Series Roadsters to 1,000 reservations, which alone would bring in as much as $250 million in deposits at a time when Tesla could use the cash. It's also ramping up production of solar panels after buying Solar City Corp. previous year. The company is now spending about $1billion (€848 million) per quarter, largely to set up a factory to mass-produce its Model 3 sedan, and is contemplating a factory in China to build cars.

Musk, too, is being pulled in many different directions.

Tesla claims its Semi, which could be recharged at the firm's 1,000 free Supercharger stations worldwide, can save 20 percent over conventional transport rigs with fuel and insurance factored in - while delivering a "better experience" for truck drivers through its cab design.

The company said in a press release the semi-trucks can accelerate from 0-to-60 miles per hour in five seconds with an empty trailer, comparable to acceleration times usually seen in sedans.

Tesla is venturing into an uncertain market. "We believe electric trucks will be most beneficial on local and dray routes, and we look forward to utilizing this new, sustainable technology".

But most of that growth is expected to be for smaller, medium-duty haulers like garbage trucks or delivery vans.

The future Roadster customers, who already can book it by paying $50,000′ on trust, ' will also be able to count on an even more significant autonomy. The regular version of the electric supercar, meanwhile, will cost $200,000. This comes right one day after the unveiling of Tesla's brand new Roadster and a semi-truck.

But even lower costs won't make trucking a sure bet for Tesla.

But Old Dominion Freight Line, the fourth-largest USA less-than-truckload carrier, which consolidates smaller freight loads onto a single, said it would not use the Tesla truck.
