News Tesla’s Semi truck caught on video

Tesla’s Semi truck caught on video

Although the footage is brief and looks like it could be staged, or even from a Terminator movie, the video clearly shows Tesla’s hyper-hyped Semi Truck cruising by on what could only be southern California city street.

Being all-electric, it’s no wonder all we hear is tire noise as the rig drive by. The Tesla Semi’s already made waves in the industry thanks to Elon Musk’s uncanny marketing abilities. A number of large companies, such as Walmart, have already placed orders for the electric Semi.

We don’t usually cover commercial trucks, but this is after all a Tesla product. You may or may not know this but there’s loads of controversy surrounding the truck. Without going through it all, some of the more intriguing matters come from the central driving position, which looks cool, and the issues surrounding range and payload.

The interwebs being what they are, someone has put together a fairly interesting video pertaining to calculating the Tesla Semi’s range/battery sized/payload dilemma. It can be somewhat complex at times, but you might learn something. I know I did.
