Tesla Semi, the automaker’s newly unveiled electric big-rig truck,
will have a base price of $150,000. Tesla’s lowest-priced model is
expected to travel 300 miles on a single charge, while the longer-range
truck will have a 500-mile range and cost $180,000.
Morgan Stanley analysts initially predicted the Semi could start at
$100,000, on the assumption that batteries may be leased separately.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said during the big reveal last week
that the truck would cost less to operate compared to traditional
diesel trucks — to the tune of about $1.26 per mile compared to the
$1.51 per mile it costs to maintain a diesel hauler.
A $20,000 deposit is required to reserve a standard Tesla Semi.
Buyers who want the limited “founders series” must pay the full $200,000
price up front. Production is expected to begin in 2019. Several major
corporations, including Walmart, J.B. Hunt, and Meijer have already placed orders for the Semi.
Semi-relatedly, Tesla’s brand-new Roadster comes in around the same
price point as the Semi: $200,000 for the base model, and $250,000 for
the founders series — the payment for which is due in full, up front.
Roadster production begins in 2020.
Some industry watchers have pointed to the new vehicles as a
cash-grab for Tesla; the company is struggling to overcome production
bottlenecks with its mass-market Model 3, the most affordable, and
most-desired Tesla. There are some 450,000 orders for the compact sedan.
Tesla fell far short of expectations for Model 3 production in the
early going, producing just 260 examples of the car by the end of
September. The company has pushed back production and delivery estimates
as a result.
According to a Bloomberg report published this week,
Tesla in the last 12 months has been burning through about $480,000 per
hour. In the absence of additional funds, the company would run out of
money by next summer, the Bloomberg data concluded. Tesla has previously
said it has the resources to keep the lights on.
Additionally, capital markets and Tesla customers have generally been reliable partners.
Tesla stock hovered between $300 and $320 recently, with some investors
expecting it to touch $400. But, there could be some volatility on the
horizon, according to one Morgan Stanley analyst as investors look for signs of progress on the Model 3 assembly line.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)
A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .
They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.
According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.
The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.
He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.
When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.
But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.
Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.
“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced.
The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.
Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:
His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
, who is London, wants us to patronise made in Nigeria!
