Don't get me wrong - I think the Tesla Semi will be a great thing. And it will hasten the demise of ICE vehicles. The Semi is reported to have a 1MWh battery pack (!!) and the new Roadster will have a 200kWh pack (!) - and that means that breakthroughs in battery cells, and in making them, has happened. And we will see these in affordable EV's, soon.
Sincerely, Neil
