    So many wins here. Millions of mapping miles for tesla, easier autonomy, dramatic improvement of emissions. Can't wait to see it.

    While a bit more information about their ideas will be nice to know, I'd be much happier to see tweets about Model 3.

    Sounds great - but he's going to need to partner with Truckstops to provide a LOT more superchargers, in a configuration that trucks can use, and might be at for 4-5 hours. (how long does it take to supercharge a 300kwh battery? 500kwh?)

    With Elon's new Superchargers that make 350kW look like child's play, not long at all. :)

    Maybe, but Elon is probably thinking more long term where there won't be a need for someone in the cab.

    I have to say this is somewhat puzzling - very long distance heavy duty electric hauling is the last area I expected to make the change over. Can this work without battery swapping stations?

    The market for metropolitan delivery & service vehicles of all kinds seems a more perfect target to me, with world wide demand too. There must be some pressure to utilize the Gigafactory's humongous output.
