One of the reasons for the Model S's surprising speed is the torque that comes their electric motor. They have hinted that they might open a plant in Texas to make trucks, but what is the probability of that? The motors have the horsepower and the torque, but would your typical truck guy accept an electric to be on par, if not better than a F-150, Silverado, etc.? Tesla is making gains in extending the super charger network, and the truck idea is still far enough in the future, but how do you think Tesla will win over the truck market?
