Daimler and others already pointed out that the battery upon which Tesla's e-Semi is based does not exist. Tesla isn't just hoping a better battery will appear, however. They have good information on it and it isn't all that insider:

I'm still considering getting a Tesla. I'll be able to buy a Model 3 with
the current standard package in 3 or 4 months or I can wait a bit longer and
buy one the way I want it configured. I need to look at the options a bit
harder to see if waiting is worth it or not. I also want to get more info
on just how different the Model 3 is from the Model S or X. With a range of
310 miles there won't be much problem getting from refueling station to
station even on long trips. The 480 mile trip has five options for
refueling which only needs to be done once, same as in my truck with a 440
mile range.

Toyota claims they have a solid state Li-Ion battery coming out next year and a Stanford-Taiwanese group claim they will have an aluminum battery about the same time. Goodenough and a Swiss firm claim they have a Na-ion battery but that'll be 10 years.

An EV may work out even if you make two long trips / month in a rental.

Even with short range & long charging times EV tow trucks make sense right now as they generally don't go far.

I'm sure they'll work it out. The market demands it, presumably with
all the different technologies manufacturers should be starting to set
some charging and connector or whatever standards today. Or maybe
they plan to play the old vhs/beta game with incompatible competing
technologies?

Or small gas turbine APU's that they could drop off with stranded
motorists, that they just chuck in the trunk and return when they can.

There's lots of ways to make this work. It will be interesting to see
how it all plays out.

Is Toyota saying they will have a battery out or a car out with that
battery? Two very different things. Having a battery out in 10 years is
not much different from saying it will be out in 100 years.

Why would I use a rental to avoid a 30 minute recharge on an 8 hour trip? I
typically stop to eat anyway. Not only has Tesla built a large network of
super chargers, local vendors are sponsoring them to attract customers.
Tesla has already committed to doubling the number of chargers in 2018.
Expect the number of chargers to triple over the next two or three years.

WTF??? I can count on one hand how many times I've run out of gas in my
life and all but one of those was when I was a dumb kid. One time I ran out
of gas because I had a shipping deadline to make and would have missed if I
got gas *before* I dropped off the package and then didn't have quite enough
gas to get to the gas station. The EV is a very "smart" car which will
allow you to keep in very close touch with your consumption and range and
distance to public facilities, not to mention that you can put some minimal
amount of charge on the batteries even from a 110 volt outlet. It may be a
while getting some charge, but being stranded is something that should
happen less often with an EV than a gas powered car. There are more 110
outlets in a single city than all the gas stations in the entire USA.

If Toyota isn't smart enough to design one component to fit the others how did they ever get ICE under the hood?

How many different cell phone battery sizes are out there? A gazillion? They need to get together like they did for USB, HDTV and other connectors and agree on a half dozen sizes for PDAs. Then do the same for motor vehicle batteries. Shipping used vehicle batteries is prohibitively expensive on Ebay.

> Having a battery out in 10 years

Solid state by next year and Toyota isn't known for making bogus claims, just the opposite. Just a few years ago the Japanese were saying they couldn't get off carbon and now it turns out they are leading the way.

As William Faulkner said people need to be encouraged.

Drivers shouldn't be on the I-5 or 99 for more than 8 hours w/o a break anyway. Every time you drive to NorCal you regret not flying and every time you fly you regret not driving. Low speed rail takes 24 hours.

Tesla tried the charming "build it and they will come" approach with EVs and it actually worked!

You really need an EV market in place before they'll have the fire in the belly to come up with better batteries, charging stations, etc.
