Has anyone mentioned the 5-second 0 - 60? I am not sure how much that matters to anyone here, but other people seem very excited about that.

According to, a semi without trailer can do 0 - 60 in 10 seconds, it takes 20 seconds with an empty trailer, and 35 seconds if fully-loaded.

Perhaps the Tesla could hit 60 with an empty trailer in 10 seconds and 17.5 with a full load, but would it?

People commented in this discussion that fast acceleration is irrelevant to trucking often prevented by the computer.

Still, wouldn't it be nice to be behind a semi that accelerates decently?
