Tesla Founder Elon Musk revealed on Thursday, via twitter, its plans for a new semi-truck. The tweet was short and sweet saying “Tesla Semi truck unveil set for September. Team has done an amazing job. Seriously next level,”
This news comes as Tesla, the new kid on the block, has its sight on the top spot as the biggest car brand in the US beating companies which have been around for generations.
Last year sold 84,000 cars, generating $7 billion in revenue, which surpassed the likes of Ford which highlight the move to a more technology driven future for the car industry. The move away from the combustion engine and the move to autonomous car looks like to be the future of transportation both of people and goods.
The projects are part of what the billionaire entrepreneur called a “secret” second master plan for the US electric car manufacturer providing a solution for heavy-duty trucks and high passenger-density urban transport
On Thursday, Musk also said in response to a Twitter question that the pickup truck would be available “in 18 to 24 months” and that there was also a new roadster version in the works which would be a convertible.
