How many cars can Elon Musk actually design? Today, the question remains unanswered, as the Tesla CEO has revealed three brand new cars that will be released in 2023.
With nearly 12 years left to go, maybe we won’t see these new Teslas in showrooms until 2025 or even 2026, but it’s always exciting to see what comes out of Musk’s mind next! In this article, we take a look at Elon Musk’s vision for our transportation future and break down everything you need to know about these new vehicles.
1) New Tesla Roadster
The fastest car Tesla has ever produced. It accelerates from 0 to 60 in less than 2 seconds and can drive more than 620 miles on a single charge. The maximum speed will be over 250 mph, making it one of the fastest production cars in history. Plus, you’ll never have to stop at a gas station again—the new Roadster is completely electric and fully rechargeable using a standard outlet. Elon also announced that his company will create solar charging Tesla stations across major U.S. cities within 10 years; all owners of Tesla models 3 and above will receive free access to these solar chargers starting in 2024.
The new Tesla Roadster’s design is inspired by sports cars of years past, with a dramatic stance and fastback silhouette. There will be three versions of Roadster – Base, Signature and Founders. Pricing has not yet been announced, but keep an eye out as more details on delivery become available in early 2024. Elon also announced that his company will create solar charging Tesla stations across the major U.S.
The new Roadster was revealed at a special event in Santa Monica, California. Tesla unveiled two other vehicles as well: a redesigned version of its Model X SUV, and a new sports car called the R6. Elon also announced that his company will create solar charging Tesla stations across major U.S. cities within 10 years; all owners of Tesla models 3 and above will receive free access to these solar chargers starting in 2024. The news comes just before Musk is scheduled to testify at an upcoming hearing regarding his controversial proposal to take Tesla private.
2) Tesla Truck
Tesla has announced that it plans to unveil its long-awaited pickup truck on November 16th, 2023 In a tweet early Thursday morning,
Elon Musk said Tesla’s new semi-truck, expected to be unveiled in September, is actually two products: It’s a pickup truck and it’s a roadster, he wrote. The new semi-truck will also debut in September and will likely compete with vehicles like Freightliner’s Cascadia series trucks. With both of these coming next year, 2022 might finally be the year we see Tesla’s pickup truck come to life. Unfortunately for those eagerly awaiting an electric vehicle from Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA), we won’t see one of those until at least 2021 — if not later.
Tesla has also announced that its next-generation Roadster will be released in 2023. This will be Tesla’s first fully electric car and is expected to go 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, making it one of the fastest production cars ever made. The new Roadster will have a top speed of over 250 mph and a range between 620 to 665 miles on a single charge, according to company estimates. It is designed from scratch as an electric vehicle and is meant to show off what’s possible with technological advances since Tesla’s first Roadster was introduced in 2008.
Tesla’s third new product will be an all-electric semi-truck, and it’s slated to hit roads in 2023. The company said on Monday that it plans to unveil its electric semi-truck on November 16th — just a few weeks after Tesla is expected to show off its new Roadster. With up to 500 miles of range, Tesla expects its all-electric semi-trucks will replace diesel-powered big rigs within three years. The vehicles are built with a range of 300 miles, but Tesla says that by using special tools, drivers can stretch them as far as 500 miles — making them cost-competitive with traditional big rigs. These semis won’t have any driver controls because they are autonomous, which raises some safety concerns.
3) Tesla Semi
Tesla’s semi-truck is due to arrive in 2023, a year earlier than originally planned. The vehicle will boast 500 miles of range on a single charge, according to Electrek. It’ll haul 80,000 pounds of cargo and travel up to 800 miles without recharging. The truck’s acceleration is said to be comparable with diesel-powered big rigs, reaching 60 mph in 20 seconds. And when it finally does slow down, it won’t be because of its batteries—the Tesla Semi will employ four motors capable of regenerative braking that capture the energy and send it back into the battery pack.
I think we’ve got a really good shot at being successful with a product, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said. This is not some insignificant, small thing. The all-electric vehicles will cost from $150,000 to $200,000 and could go into production as soon as 2022. Tesla is already taking reservations—$5,000 per truck reservation.
The company expects to produce 500,000 electric-powered heavy-duty vehicles per year by 2023. Tesla’s chief executive said he will focus on the freight industry next. They want a truck that can drive itself and make money while they’re sleeping, he said. All Tesla Cars Will Be Fully Autonomous By 2018: On Wednesday, Elon Musk announced that all of Tesla’s cars will be fully autonomous in 2018.
Elon Musk Reveals 3 NEW Teslas For-2023 I’m sure it will be popular in Asia, said Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Thursday while revealing his plans to roll out 3 new vehicles with his electric car company in 2023. Yeah, I mean if you look at what’s going on in China right now and how auto sales are growing 10% a year there. You know that’s like a crazy explosion of demand, particularly EVs. So we’re going to try and meet that as much as possible.
Tesla has a history of predictions, with early versions being highly anticipated. The electric car company made its first cars in 2012 and then its Roadster (2012) and Model S sedans (2013). Since then, Tesla has rolled out several models including the 2015 Model X; 2016 Model 3; 2017 Models S and X; 2018 Models 3, S, and X. The prices on these vehicles start at $35,000 USD.
The first car is expected to be a successor to today’s Model 3. It’ll be smaller than Tesla’s current family sedan but will have more room in both passenger and cargo areas. The second new vehicle is going to be a small SUV that might replace today’s Model Y. We’re going to make Model Y kind of like how we made Model 3: same platform, almost same body, just tweaked for maximum X appeal in SUV form.
