Elon Musk debuted the Tesla Semi last night, marking Tesla foray into the long-haul trucking sector. The Tesla Semi is powered by four Model 3 motors (one for each wheel) and should be able to travel 500 miles on a single charge at its maximum weight capacity. Exact battery size and power output figures were not revealed. The truck is classified as by the Federal Highway Administration’ as a Class 8 heavy duty truck, which at 33,001+ lbs is the highest weight rating.
Tesla made waves last night with the debut of its first-ever semi truck and its second-generation Roadster sports car, but those weren’t the only new Tesla products shown. The automaker also debuted a rough design for a pickup truck during the presentation. As you may be able to tell from the sketch above, Tesla’s idea for a pickup is far from ordinary.
Last night, Tesla shocked the EV world with the debut of its second-generation Roadster. The new Tesla Roadster is all about insane numbers. It makes an unbelievable 7,376 lb-ft of torque between its three electric motors, which enables a claimed 0-60 mph time of 1.9 seconds and a top speed of 250 mph. With a large 200 kWh battery pack, the four-seat sports coupe will also be capable of traveling up to 620 miles on a single charge.
Why do Tesla people care about performance anyway? Aren't they supposed to be earth friendly types? Doesn't using batteries with mined cobalt to boast about how fast you can accelerate go against their beliefs?

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".
