Tesla Semi (2020) Badass Performance Electric Truck - Dauer: 100 Sekunden
Without a trailer, the 2020 Tesla Semi achieves 0-60 mph in 5 seconds, compared to 15 seconds in a comparable diesel truck. It does 0-60 mph in 20 seconds with a full 80,000-pound load, a task that takes a diesel truck about a minute. Most notably for truck drivers and other travelers on the road, it climbs 5% grades at a steady 65 mph, whereas a diesel truck maxes out at 45 mph on a 5% grade. The Tesla Semi requires no shifting or clutching for smooth acceleration and deceleration, and its regenerative braking recovers 98% of kinetic energy to the battery, giving it a basically infinite brake life   Read More ...

Audi expanding production of 'sustainable' diesel made from water and carbon dioxide
Audi is expanding production of what it says is a nearly carbon neutral kind of gasoline and diesel from entirely renewable sources. The German automaker, a unit of Volkswagen, said Wednesday that it plans to build a new pilot facility where it will make synthetic "e-diesel" in Laufenburg, Switzerland. Audi says its e-diesel fuel allows cars to run in a way that is almost carbon neutral — meaning the fuel would not substantially add carbon emissions into the atmosphere, making the fuel potentially far more environmentally friendly   Read More ...

In fact, for the 2018 model year thus far, there are only 11. One of the two companies offering the largest number of them may come as a surprise, too. That number could rise, if Fiat Chrysler obtains EPA certification for its EcoDiesel versions of the Ram 1500 and Jeep Grand Cherokee   Read More ...
