WATCH: Tesla Semi will blow your mind

It might not be a car and cars rule. But, what if we told you that it went from 0-100km/h in 5 seconds!

GT Mag has been reluctant to report on the Tesla semi, a ridiculously fast electric truck, because we have a strict car only policy. Indeed, we have been good enough to keep to that policy since the Tesla Semi was unveiled last year but it has been very difficult to keep quiet about it until now and here's why.

It is a truck. A truck that transports things. Heavy things. Truck-heavy things. So why, we ask, or rather how, how does this ridiculous thing go from 0-100km/h in 5 seconds? It is extraordinary. With a full load of over 36000kg that number jumps to 20 seconds (impressive still) but without a load and trailer, 5 seconds! Five. Five seconds.

One. Two. Three. Four. Five. And just like that, a full-sized truck has reached 100.

How bro? How?

Is it even safe having something this large going this quick? We're not so sure about it. Goodness knows though, it is impressive! And good looking? Did we just suggest with an awkward question mark that a truck might be good looking? Did we just write that? What has Elon Musk done to us?


Just take a look at this quick video of the Tesla Semi at launch, giving lifts to execs so they can get the feel for it.
