Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveils a surprise new vehicle

Elon Musk's Tesla Unveils Electric'Semi Truck And Roadster

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world's biggest retailer, said in an announcement on Friday that it has pre-requested five Tesla units in its Walmart US division and 10 units at Walmart Canada.

Tesla's new semi-truck is something out of the box, while the Roadster, its new sports auto is supposed to be the fastest vehicles to date. This comes right one day after the unveiling of Tesla's brand new Roadster and a semi-truck. This is company's second attempt to build a sports auto after building a small electric roadster based on the Lotus Elise.

"The point of doing this is to give a hardcore smackdown to gasoline cars", Musk told a crowd in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Prices of the new Roadster start at $250,000 for the first 1,000 cars that will start production in 2020, with later models starting at $2,00,000. The Porsche 918 Spyder goes 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds.

The new convertible four-seater Roadster prototype, which sped into the event, can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 1.9 seconds, and 0 to 100 miles per hour in only 4.2 seconds. It will have a 200 kilowatt hour battery pack and will be able to drive 620 miles on a single charge, Musk said.

"This is the first time that any production auto has broken nine seconds in a quarter mile", Musk said. "This will the first time that any production auto has broken 9 seconds in the quarter mile". Customers can reserve a model with a $50,000 deposit. Companies such as Walmart have already sent in $5,000 preorder payments for the Tesla Mini, and Tesla is already taking preorders for the new Tesla Roadster.

As non-renewable energy sources as getting more costly, it's time to replace petrol/diesel vehicle with electric vehicles. "We're making it now".

The vehicle is expected to be available in 2020. "So far that final element has eluded Tesla Motors, which makes it hard to see these vehicles as more than "what if" concept cars".
