Sure, Tesla have finished it once more. The latest unveiling of the Tesla ‘semi’ truck and the Tesla Roadster have shifted the goalposts and created a ‘hardcore …

Everyone keep says this is the fastest production car but some one tell me is the roadster in production or is it a prototype. I thought that the production car will not be on the market until 2020. Which mean what we saw is a prototype and not a production car so it is not the fastest production car until the car is made in production volume and tested.


I'm still looking for Tesla, or sombody, to produce a sensible 4-5 seat hatch back, with good range at lowish cost for normal people. We are a lot closer now; but that's the target.
I suspect moving the majority of goods transport; general commercial work; plus public passenger vehicles; to EV (or another non IC power source) could have the biggest impact on clean air targets to date. But it will take time; to replace the millions of vehicles involved. In some cases, entire transport systems need to be replaced.


Your show is now officially supported by diesel industry! SCNR


Musk is a joke. He shouldn't be announcing products which is not ready for release. Semi and Raodster 2, being so far from production, is like concept car, nothing else. Like his Level 5 autonomous driving feature – Musk promised release date of Dec 2016 and it's still nowhere!! Musk really has no idea what he is doing – like his fake Model 3 launch! Most likely Tesla will go belly up before roadster 2 or Tesla semi launches, so Musk is just suckering all the Tesla fanboys for extra free cash!


a prototype car is not a hardcore smackdown to anything. WHEN they start selling this to the general public, then we can talk (and compare it to whatever is on the market in those two-three years).

Thanks for a great episode can't wait for all the cool things to come!


Greetings from America :p I love your channel.

I love you! My new video about you!

I may be uneducated on the whole electric car thing but can someone answer me this….
My experience with batteries and many other people is that batteries deteriorate over time, your phone battery for example?
Now thats no big deal, simply buy a new one, but how long will these electric car batteries last??
I imagine they wont be cheap neither?

what matters with trucks is GVM Gross Vehicle Mass, how much does the Tesla Truck weigh in comparison to a normal truck?

Warren Huck

There seems to be a lot of speculation about the Semi battery being 1 mega watt, I suspect that it does not have to be that big. The truck will draw a serious amount of power to accelerate and to go uphill but what we need to know is what the average power draw is for a fully loaded truck to drive on a flat surface. I suspect that the flat service power draw is well below the quoted 2 kwh per mile that is being talked about. My musings are purely speculative of course.

Testla please make new battery's for phones 😂

Alan Robertson

please show more non automotive vids cars are not the only thing happening right now !!!!

Keith Allen

Been wanting to ask for ages, where did you get the Tesla Roadster and Renault Twizy models? They're awesome and I want some 😁 can you let me know who makes them please?


Ben Sullins’ YouTube is Teslanomics not Teslarati😜

Love the channel Robert. Wish you didnt make a face when announcing my handle as a Patreon. The "Diesel" part of my name is FITNESS reference🤣 Keep up the great work! Love your energy

It has 4 seats not 2…..


Actually, it's around 150-180$/kWh (US$), but it's very hard to get a reliable figure due to contract secrecy. $100/k seems attainable, if unlikely. Maintaining speed on a grade depends on the grade! Drive over the mountain on US-52 or I-77 around Fancy Gap, Virginia (~1000ft climb over ~6mi – on 77, 52 looks worse) — I crossed it at 30mph (winnebago with a trailer+car – est. 6ton)

I look forward to each and every Fully Charged News in the hope that this will be the episode in which I'm thanked for my Patreon support.  It's like waiting for Christmas, hoping it's Christmas, waking up with it feeling like Christmas but finding out it's actually only the 27th of November.  Gutted.


The battery technology can evolve, while the petrol is at the limit of evolution.
It's just the start for the electric vehicles !


Remember a diesel truck here in the USA costs between 120k-350k so not too bad.


How about Sion from Sono motors? Did you cover this in any fully charged episode?

I wonder how long it would take before solar cells where built in an electric car. Now I can stop wonder 🙂 From what I have seen so far its a affordable car that can charge it self, pull a trailer, power hairdryer. It can even charge another car in need!!! How cool is that?

You dont need to be a news show. Just tell us about electric cars .

I'm sorry tesla cars look so bland and boring even the new roadster and lorry.

Anti Petrolhead

I'm not into super cars or racing. But I do have a soft spot for a 2nd gen NSX and a Porsche 911 Carrera. However, my real take away is NOT the Semi or the Roadster. It's the advanced tech underneath. The smaller battery pack with long range is the breakthrough that we (electric car society) needed to finally convince petrol heads that they need to come over to our side of the fence and still get what they want. Range, reliability, and sexy if we're lucky.


I hope that Tesla keep their promises …and that they release greatly improved batteries, to manage to do so (which would, of course, translate into improved batteries for smartphones, laptops, etc, as well)

Nobody is gonna notice the top speed which is 250mph+? How is that possible?

This is all hype to trick more investors so he can steal their money. He's desperate, Tesla is in ruins if he can't get more help. The Roadster probably didn't have a 200 KWh battery in it. They may squeeze 120 – 150 KWh in it, but it'll be heavy and go into flames at 250 mph. The trucks has some serious questions regarding durability. The open motors and wires at the back is one of the biggest. And also, 1.000.000 miles warranty?? Who believes that crap? He can't even give that to the Model 3 or S, and most… Read more »
