Elon Musk Confirms A Tesla Pickup Truck Is In The Pipeline… After Model Y

If you can recall, during the Tesla Semi unveiling event, Tesla also made a surprise (or maybe not…) announcement of the second-generation Tesla Roadster and more crucially, tease something that sets the heart of fans of Tesla and pickup enthusiasts’ heart fluttering. It was a pickup truck. A supersize one, to be exact, shown in a render that had a bed huge enough to swallow a F-150 Supercrew almost whole. Wait. That’s no pickup truck. It’s a truck and if the render was a projection of Elon Musk’s mind, then that thing there is probably of a Unimog class truck.

What Does The New Tesla Semi Mean For The Future?

Tesla’s Electric Cargo Hauling Truck Has A Supercar Drag Coefficient

So, here it is. The much anticipated Tesla’s answer to trucking, the Tesla Semi, is finally revealed. I am not going to lie. I have not love a semi this much until now. Now, I am not a Tesla fanboy, btw, but this thing here is super sleek and the technology it has to offer would be the yardstick of the future of semis. While aesthetically fabulous, it is, however, secondary. What’s impressive here is what it can really do. For starter, it is faster than your average car, making 0-60 in 5 seconds without a trailer and way, way quicker than any diesel-powered semi.

I Can’t Stop Thinking About Chevy’s Custom 1967 C-10 Pickup Truck

The sleek lines offered on today’s pickup truck are pretty. I am not going to deny it. However, there is this thing found in the pickup trucks from the 60-80s that have me faithfully loving them until today. I love how pickup trucks of those days looked. You know, the straight, flat look with the right amount of chrome on them. They are so clean and yet speaks volume. It is like, there was a lot of things happening on it, but never intrusive or an eyesore. Those are exactly the ‘qualities’ found on the custom 1967 C-10 pickup revealed by Chevrolet at the Texas State Fair. Continue reading I Can’t Stop Thinking About Chevy’s Custom 1967 C-10 Pickup Truck

Cummins’ Concept Electric Semi Makes 100-Mile, Hauls Up To 2 Tons Of Cargo

Electric car, electric bicycle and, to some extend, electric motorcycle are becoming increasing common. However, if the world really wants to get rid of emissions entirely, we will need to address the other prevalent transportation, namely, commercial buses and trucks. Lucky for us, someone is already looking into those, coming up with the idea of battery-powered buses and even one that is powered by human waste (apparently, with none of the smell). As for trucks, there is still no sight of all electric trucks coming our way except for an electric highway to power electric semis that has been undergoing trial in Sweden. But today, that changes when Cummins Inc., the global maker of Diesel engines, unveiled an all-electric powertrain concept truck.
