Last decade was signed by drastic changes in almost every sphere of our everyday life. The whole bunch of the high-tech solutions surround us almost everywhere he is at home or outside. It’s almost impossible now to imagine how our life would be without all these. Sometimes invisible interventions allowing us to use the most prominent technologies that make our days confident, comfortable and safe. And there is a name that could be considered as a synonym of all these wonders. The brands that turned the Automotive World upside down by setting totally new standards and approaches to that very conservative industry.
The name of the company is Tesla, which produced its first model in 2008. Although the roadster was able to travel almost 250 miles on a single charge with an acceleration and top speed comparable to many consumer level sports cars, its price was too high to attract the customers. Only since 2012 when the first Tesla Model S was launched, the new era of electrification has begun.
The Model S was very successful. It was awarded by several automotive and environmental publications and said new benchmarks for what an electric vehicle could be. Since then, Tesla hasn’t stopped to amaze the world with its astonishing products like mass market model 3 and the newly revealed cyber track.
Moreover, according to the latest Tesla’s report of the fourth quarter earnings in 2019, the electric carmaker earned 7.38 billion dollars in revenue, much more than it was expecting. The company that delivered around 100 and 12,000 vehicles in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Water earnings in 2019. The electric carmaker earned 7.38 billion dollars in revenue, much more than it was expecting. The company that delivers around 112 thousand vehicles in the fourth quarter of 2019 is expected to produce over 500,000 vehicles in 2020, which will be another record for the company.
2019 was a huge turning point for Tesla, thanks to strong and always growing demand for the model. 3 Tesla has generated about one point. 3 Tesla has generated about 1.1 billion dollars of free cash flow for the year. And that’s why we could expect much more in the upcoming one to two years. So let’s talk about new Tesla products that are on the way to hit the roads in the upcoming two years.
During Tesla’s autonomy day event in 2019, Musk announced the company’s robot taxi plan for a self-driving ride sharing network with this electric cars. The company also aims at bringing a fleet of fully autonomous model 3 robot taxis to the roads without steering wheels and pedals. The timeline depends on the regulators in different jurisdictions, but the system is expected to be enabled in at least one market by the end of 2020.
Actually all new Tesla vehicles are coming to market with the full self-driving computer chip fulfilling the hardware requirements for a high level self-driving vehicle and the owners will be able to add their cars to the shared fleet if they gained the full self-driving package.
It’s estimated the model 3 used as a robotaxi could generate about $30,000 in gross profit per year. Without drivers and with improvements in the battery energy efficiency, the transportation cost will become possible to drastically decrease per mile while actually the standard cost of ridesharing in the US is about 2 to $3 per mile. The robotaxi ride. Will cost only $0.18 per mile, which is 10 to 15 times less.
The second awaited model for 2020 is the all-electric semi-truck unveiled to the public in November 2017, which is going to revolutionize the whole commercial transportation system. Musk initially promised to start the production in 2019, but it was delayed until the end of 2020. But anyway, it seems all the amazing features of the semi are worth waiting so long.
The Tesla’s truck will be powered by 4 electric Motors that are based on the ones that power the Model 3 and can accelerate a semi-truck from zero to 60 mph in just five seconds without a trailer and only 20 seconds with 80,000 pounds of cargo. Actually, is performances much above when it comes to traditional gasoline powered trucks. One of the most important factors is the semis. Cabin design also prevents it from jackknifing, making it unprecedented, safe on the highways and potentially rescuing thousands of motorist’s lives.
Two variants of the truck provide drivers with 300 or 500 miles of range per charge, though Tesla is already working on the new battery technologies, so the semi production versions range could be closer to 600 miles instead. Standard equipment assembly includes automatic emergency braking system, obstacle recognition, and Lane keeping assist functions as well as the forward collision warning system and the ability to communicate wirelessly with other vehicles on the road.
The truck is expected to cost about $150,000 for the standard version and $200,000 for the founder’s series. A number of leading large companies have already placed pre orders on this semi, intending to use the new truck to reduce their carbon footprint and raise the efficiency level. Besides these new vehicles, we can expect to new versions of already selling Model S and model X, which remain Tesla’s flagship vehicles.
Elon Musk has plans to bring played modes of these models to market sometime around October or November in 2020. Played is the newest and quickest mode set to roll out for the Tesla Model S. It means that an additional electric motor will be mounted on the rear axle of each car, which will provide overall better handling and acceleration. Besides, Musk has already announced that the company succeeded to significantly improve the chemistry technologies of the existing battery packs. We’re rapidly approaching a 400 mile range for the Model S, so it won’t be long before the Model S has a 400 mile range, he said.
Other changes include wider arches and wheels with Goodyear, Eagle F1, Super Sport Rs tires as well as possibly carbon ceramic brakes and rear facing jump seats. The new played versions of both the Model S and eggs will not only be fast on the straight line, but will also be enabled to set new records on the track.
The long awaited model YA crossover, built on the same platform used for the model 3 is finally gone into production to be delivered from March 2020. The model Y should be compatible in size with such trendsetting models like the BMW X3 and the Mercedes-Benz GL C. As Elon Musk said earlier, the model. Why should have the functionality of an SUV but ride like a sports car due to a low center of gravity and an aerodynamic drag coefficient of 0.23?
The most important innovation from the production point of view is the fact Tesla is going to the aluminum casting design instead of the lot of traditional stainless steel and aluminum pieces. By using approximately only one part instead of the former 70 ones.
The first versions to deliver in 2020 will be the jewel motor long range and performance models with gnu 20 or 21 inch wheel options, both variants can achieve a range of 280 miles, but thanks to engineering progress and 19 inch Gemini Wheels which are now standard for both models, the all wheel drive model. Why you can overcome a distance of 315 miles? Making is the most energy efficient electric SUV in the world.
With four point, 1 miles of range per kWh, it obviously beats Ford Mackie and the already commercialized Jaguar I pace. The rear wheel drive long range model was also originally announced, but currently there’s no mention of it on Tesla’s website. The cheapest model Y or the standard variant is expected to be available in 2021.
The Tesla Cyber Truck
Revealed in November 2019, the Tesla cyber truck remains the most controversial and at the same time, the most anticipated vehicle of Tesla’s model range. With its ultra hard stainless steel body, triangular design and almost unbreakable glasses, the cyber track is going to fully change the pickup truck market landscape. It will be available in three different configurations, including the single motor rear wheel drive model as well as two and three motor models with all wheel drive configuration.
The weakest cybertracker will go from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and could reach a top speed of 110 mph. But you’ll notice cyber track is much quicker and will reportedly reach 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and develop a top speed of 120 mph. And finally, the ultimate version is able to speed up from zero to 60 mph in only two point 9 seconds and reach a top speed of 130 mph.
One of the most interesting options available for cyber truck buyers will be the two person ATV dubbed the cyber court. At the cybertracker launch event, this four Wheeler scrambled up the cargo area of a cyber truck, which became possible due to the proper work of the pickups adaptive suspension system.
Besides, Tesla provides a unique option to charge the all electric ATV right there in the bed of the cyber truck, so it would be amazing to meet this couple on the roads. Already in 2021.
The other solution, known as ludicrous mode that’s already present on Tesla’s higher models, could become available for the Tesla Model 3 by the end of 2020. It is aimed to provide much faster acceleration and will enable the vehicle to reach 60 mph in less than 3 seconds.
Now the biggest battery pack available for the model 3 has a 75 kilowatt hours capacity, but the new model 3 might be equipped with a 100 kilowatt hours battery pack for an EPA rated. Range of 400 miles per charge.
Coming to the end, it’s worth mentioning the second generation of Tesla’s first ever model, the famous roadster, the conceptual roadster two was revealed alongside the semi truck as a bonus to the launch event. As Elon Musk said, the new Tesla Roadster will be the fastest production car ever made, and it would obviously be due to its three Motors configuration, two driving the rear wheels and one driving the front. Tesler promises a 200 kWh battery pack for the roadster, 2, which is exactly twice as much as the capacity of the actual largest pack available on any Tesla car.
It will probably serve as a source for all that combo of speed, acceleration, and an unprecedented 620 mile range at highway speeds. The roadster two will be able to speed up from zero to 60 mph in just one point, 9 seconds reach 100 mph in 4.2 seconds and develop a top speed above 250 mph. And that’s about the base model, which, as Musk hinted earlier, is only the first step on the roadster’s performance way.
And finally, let’s not forget about the so-called model 2, which is going to be the most affordable Tesla vehicles so far. There is no detailed info on this vehicle, but assumable it will come with 400 to 500 miles of range in its top spec variant. It could also have a base variant with a smaller battery pack. And Lo arrange. It may be designed in a future design and Engineering Center, which is going to be established in China to create an original car for worldwide consumption.
So, these were the most anticipated Tesla Services and products for the upcoming 12 to 18 months. Yes, right now that could be Down’s on the deployment of the robotaxi system. That could face different obstacles such as unclear federal regulation of the usage of the vehicles without steering wheel and pedals. We think this issue would be arranged as soon as the demand for the self-driving rides arise. What is your vision? Would all these Tesla promises become real already this or next year?
