Here are the stats that Musk used to back up his claim: It'll go from zero to 60 miles per hour in 1.9 seconds, and from zero to 100 in 4.2 seconds.
However, while a shiny, fast red Roadster has got everyone excited, production of the company's first "affordable" vehicle, the Model 3, is behind schedule due to factory delays.
The Semi is the company's first electric truck, which it claims can travel up to 500 miles on a single charge.
The company said that the Tesla Semi would work out cheaper per mile than an equivalent diesel vehicle, but neglected to share details of just how much an individual truck would set you back.
The Roadster is scheduled to go into production in 2020, and the Semi should become available in 2019, Musk said.
Some analysts fear the trucks will be an expensive distraction for the company, which has never posted an annual profit and is in self-described "manufacturing hell" related to the $35,000 Model 3 saloon. This technology allows for automatic breaking, lane keeping and lane departure warnings.

Musk said Tesla will guarantee the big rigs will not break down for a million miles because they have will have multiple motors. "It probably is, based on the specs provided, but this isn't necessarily a slam dunk", said Rebecca Lindland, an executive analyst at Kelley Blue Book.
Tesla's truck can also follow other Semis autonomously to form a convoy of several vehicles - a feature that Musk outlined in his masterplan for the company a year ago. Plaid is of course Tesla's next level of acceleration, paying homage to Space Balls the movie, that goes beyond Ludicrous mode.
"The Tesla Roadster is absolutely fabulous and Elon Musk's ambition is admirable". And if three streamlined Semis are platooned as a close-following convoy, the cost per mile would go down to 85 cents, Musk said. Walmart has confirmed that it reserved fifteen Tesla Semi trucks, telling CNBC that it had earmarked ten for the USA and the remaining five for Canada.
Tesla sold just 222 Model 3s from July through September. "So far, that final element has eluded Tesla Motors, which makes it hard to see these vehicles as more than "what if" concept cars". The Semi also comes with regenerative braking for improved brake life, while there is no need to shift gears on this truck, which should make it convenient for drivers.
Tesla says if there is a crash and the auto doesn't hear from you, it will automatically call emergency responders.
There's been a lot of speculation about the semi truck concept - including if the semi truck market is even a good fit for the company.
But most of that growth is expected to be for smaller, medium-duty haulers like garbage trucks or delivery vans.
