Tesla is ready to take your money for its Semi truck (just don’t ask when you’ll actually get one)

Five years after it was announced, Tesla has opened up reservations for its all-electric Semi truck, scheduled to go into production in 2023. On the company’s website, you can make a reservation by paying $5,000 upfront, then $15,000 within 10 days. (Spotted via InsideEVs.) A word of warning, though: the $5k is refundable, but it seems the $20k ain’t.

Now, you’d be forgiven for having forgotten all about Tesla’s Semi, which was announced in 2017 with futuristic concept art and envious specs. The company says the truck will be powered by four independent motors on the rear axles, go 0-60mph in 20 seconds, and have a battery range of either 300 or 500 miles.

Automakers were churning out near-identical versions of its cars—like say, the Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis, and Lincoln Town Car—and charging more for the “luxury” versions while doing the bare minimum to differentiate styling or powertrains. Most automakers were scared away from the experiment after watching the big American automakers stumble through the Great Recession, so it was curious that with the Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, and Genesis GV60, Hyundai effectively mimicked the model. Same platform, identical motors, albeit with drastically different skins. We’ve driven the Ioniq 5 and EV6 extensively and were impressed by both. We’ve now had the chance to get behind the wheel of the new 2023 GV60 Performance—the South Korean luxury brand’s first EV—and it turns out that when

2024 Honda Prologue Sketch Reveals First New GM-Based EV Crossover

Honda will be playing catchup when it comes to all-electric vehicles; the first offering is not due until 2024. To keep up our interest in the interim, the automaker has released a sketch of the exterior of the Honda Prologue electric midsize SUV that will lead its electric charge. The Prologue was developed with General Motors and will use the same BEV3 electric vehicle architecture as the similarly sized 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, as well as Buick and Chevy EVs in the midsize crossover segment. The Prologue will also use GM’s Ultium battery management system and will be manufactured at a GM plant.

But the top hat is all Honda, designed and developed at the Honda Design Studio in the Los Angeles, in collaboration with the design team in Japan. From the sketch we see the look is sleek, clean, and simple, with flush door handles to help with aerodynamics. The
