With the Tesla Semi launch event now a week and a half behind us, I figured it would be a great time to examine what it is that makes the Tesla Semi such a revolutionary truck — at least, what will make it a revolutionary truck if all of the promises made of it are followed through on when it launches in 2019.

Of course, there’s lots to get excited about even at face value, from the central seating position through to the massive quad-motor drivetrain, long-range capabilities and Megachargers that Tesla says will make longer-distance travel possible.

But for me, the biggest revolutionary thing about the Tesla Semi isn’t any of those features — nor the platooning or the autonomous capabilities. It’s the cost of the battery packs that will power the Tesla Semi.
