What do you think of Tesla’s electric semi-truck?

Looks neat
Semi is the safest, most comfortable truck ever. Four independent motors provide maximum power and acceleration and require the lowest energy cost per mile.

0-60 mph with 80k lbs
< 2 kWh/mi

and accounting for the greater efficiency of electric motors, as well as regenerative braking, the envelope engineers estimated that an electric semi would require a 1,200 kWh battery pack to achieve a range of 600 miles. At a cost of $100/kWh, which Tesla hopes to reach soon, that would be a $120,000 battery. According to a 2016 article from AskTheTrucker, the cost of a new diesel-powered tractor starts around $113,000, and annual fuel costs are “easily more than $70,000.”

Just so y'all know, this guy is spamming multiple forums/sites with the same posts (google if you don't believe me), and based on behavior of similar types of posters, is probably just a spammer that's going to edit the spam in later. Or get people used to seeing his stuff and then start spamming.
