While Tesla is saying that the new Roadster will arrive in 2020, the chances of that happening are slim.

That was after Tesla unveiled its new semi-truck, which CEO Elon Musk said can go zero-to-60 in five seconds with an empty trailer.

For those looking to get the new Roadster early, the cost will be $250,000.

Kim then began telling the audience a story about how her daughter, North West , opened up all the baby shower gifts. But the key choice she gets to make is location, as in home birth or hospital, especially which hospital.

The "all-electric supercar" also has a 200-kilowatt battery pack that offers 620 miles of highway driving.

The truck will have Tesla's Autopilot system, which can maintain a set speed and slow down automatically in traffic.

Irwin says truck companies will have to watch the market carefully, because tougher regulations on diesels or an improvement in charging infrastructure could make electric trucks more viable very quickly. A 300-mile version will also be available.

Eleven of the council's 15 members voted in favor of the US-drafted resolution, while Egypt and China abstained. Rycroft said after the veto that Russian Federation has "failed as a supposed supporter of peace in Syria".

Tesla also surprised fans with an updated version of its first sports auto, the Roadster.

Musk said the semi will have a range of 500 miles with a full load and casn get a 400-mile charge in 30 minutes.

The Tesla Semi is expected to begin deliveries in 2019, and reservations are being taken now. Fleet operators want reliable trucks, and Tesla will have to prove it can make them, said Michelle Krebs, executive analyst with the auto shopping site Autotrader. "A diesel truck will be 20 percent more expensive than a Tesla truck per mile", said Musk. The figure assumes a diesel price of $2.50 a gallon versus 7 cents/kWh for electricity and a maximum load traveling at an average speed of 60 miles per hour. Thanks to the low cost of running it, buyers should make back the additional cost in just two years, Tesla claimed. "There is of course only one thing beyond ludicrous, but that speed is reserved for the next generation Roadster in 4 years: maximum plaid." said Musk.

Although Thursday night's event celebrated Tesla's largest and smallest new offerings, the company is grappling with how to smooth problems that have hit its flagship Model 3. The anemic number fell far short of expectations; the company had received 140,000 advance orders for the vehicle within hours of it being announced in the spring of 2016. Stepping into the delivery ring is Tesla Founder and CEO Elon Musk, whose previous vehicle and SUV models have been a continued success. These are just concept vehicles, really, but it's Tesla, and nothing is really ever as it seems.
