Tesla has revealed the Tesla Semi, the electric car company’s first truck, and as you’d expect it’s quite the vehicle. Designed to transport up to 80,000 pounds – the maximum permitted on US highways – it can’t quite escape Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s obsession with electric speed. That makes for some fairly crazy figures. 0-60 mph comes in just five seconds, for the truck alone. With the full 80,000 pound load, 0-60 mph takes just 20 seconds.
This is the new Tesla Roadster: 0-60 in 1.9 secondsElon Musk promised a surprise at the Tesla Semi reveal, and this is it: the all-new Tesla Roadster. Set to hit the roads in 2020, the brand new car is a nod to the automaker’s origins, the original Roadster, the all-electric convertible which started Musk & Co. on their path to making electrification the sexiest way to get from A to B. That sexiness isn’t in short supply when it comes to the new Tesla Roadster.
As “one more thing” surprises go, Elon Musk’s unexpected reveal of the new Tesla Roadster was a move that would make Steve Jobs proud. After all, we knew a new Tesla Roadster was coming, we just didn’t know to expect to see it quite so soon – and certainly not right after the EV-maker made its big pitch for the Tesla Semi truck. Missed the late-night announcement? Here are five fast facts to get you up to speed. The numbers make for some impressive reading, certainly. 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds.
It has been a privilege and an honor to share this tarpaulin journey with you. I’ve discovered a lot, not least about myself. And surely, reader, as we face our sunset years, that is the truest sign of life well spent, and waterproofly-draped.
Not the biggest tarp, no, but neither the smallest. Blue, as you see here, true, but brown on its playful reverse. Rope-reinforced at its charming edges. Its grommets rustproof. Reader, I was enchanted. Enthralled. This, I knew, was the tarp for me.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
