Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk announced Wednesday that the company's "unreal" semi truck was tentatively set to be unveiled in October.

Musk has already revealed some details about the project. Speaking at Tesla's annual shareholder meeting in June, the CEO said the automaker has been working with its "biggest customers" on the design of the semi truck, so they already know what the Tesla is making.

Nissan's next Leaf is cheaper and can almost drive itself

  Nissan's next Leaf is cheaper and can almost drive itself The Nissan Leaf does pretty well for the automaker. It's one of the best selling EVs ever and today the company introduced a redesigned $29,990 Leaf with ProPilot, a hands-on semi-autonomous feature for heavy traffic. Nissan unveiled the 2018 Leaf at events in Las Vegas and Tokyo with an aggressive new design for the four-door hatchback. With a 150 mile range (the current model has a 107 mile range), it doesn't quite compete with the Tesla Model 3 or Chevy Bolt. But it has a price tag that's $5,000 cheaper than those two vehicles which may have some potential customers debating the if 100 miles is worth the extra cash.
