For the first time, the Tesla Semi has been spotted in the wild, and can be seen in this video. You’ll notice how quiet the electric vehicle is compared to a regular transport truck.
Although not expected for full production until 2019, the Tesla Semi is already widely anticipated, with many pre-orders already placed. For instance, Loblaws pre-ordered 25, Walmart says it’s pre-ordered 15, and UPS tops the list with 125 pre-orders.
The Tesla Semi promises to have a lower total cost of ownership, with a 500 mile range and greater aerodynamics, and a future of autonomous driving.
