The Tesla Semi has finally been spotted on the road
It's red and it's enormous
The original Tesla Roadster S came out around ten years ago and it was raw, quick and completely different from a modern Tesla.
In the years since, Tesla has come up with several cars and concept cars and after the S, the X, the 3 and the Y, Elon Musk is ready to give us an all-electric Semi.
We'd only seen press pictures and renderings of it until now, but Jerome Mends-Cole, the owner of a Tesla rental company called SacTesla, spotted a prototype version of the Semi at a Tesla store and these are his pictures.
Tesla has already found partners who are going to use the Semi to deliver the goods and production has been pushed back to 2020. The powertrain for the Semi will be built at Tesla’s Gigafactory 1 in Nevada, but the company still hasn't confirmed where the truck will be assembled.
The Semi is designed to deliver goods but, being a Tesla, it will also deliver speed. It does 0-60 in around five seconds. This ginormous truck will be available in at least two different versions, with the long range capable of travelling over 500 miles between charges and it comes with a price tag starting at around $150,000.
