After watching the recent uTube Video where the Fast Lane attempted to do a cross country towing test using the Model X with the 100 KWH Battery pack we learned that the energy usage dramatically increased. Now granted their trailer choice could have been better. That camper is not near as Aerodynamic as other offerings out there.
This got me thinking, what size of battery pack would be needed for the Tesla Truck. I know Elon said the base price would be 49.9K. I would image based on the current price for Lithium battery this entry model would likely be no more than 120 KWH. Given the above example, I image that model would only slightly better result for cross country towing than the Model X was. My guess the top line would want at least 200 KWH. What thoughts does other truck lovers have on this.
