New York, NY—October 21, 2018—Tesla has unveiled a super highway that will be powered by the company’s new Tesla Powerpack.
The Tesla Powerpacks will be built by the Palo Alto-based company in partnership with a Chinese automaker, which will then build them for the US market.
Tesla’s Powerpack has a capacity of 2,700 horsepower and a peak torque of 700 lb-ft (1,800 Nm).
It can reach speeds of up to 70 mph (96 km/h), but it only has one charge-time, so the car’s electric motors will only be fully charged in a few hours.
Tesla says that the Powerpacks could be used as a highway replacement for other cars, and the company hopes to have the super highway available by the end of 2021.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced the company had developed a super high-speed highway in 2017 that will run between Los Angeles and San Francisco in three minutes.
The company was also working on a super-highway that would run between Detroit and St. Louis, and between Chicago and New York.
The Super Highway would have a maximum speed of 150 mph (265 km/hr).
