Leaked Tesla Semi Video Shows (TSLA)
A video showing what looks to be a Tesla Semi electric truck has surfaced as seen in the link below. The video shows the strangest acceleration ever seen in a truck. There are no tailpipes and the sound is very quiet for such a large vehicle where it is usually expected for diesel engines.
This hints at the fact that it might be a Tesla Semi. Whether or not the truck will look more Tesla-esque when it is unveiled on November 16th, is still to be determined. Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, has stated that the Tesla Semi would have enough power to beat a regular diesel truck in an uphill head-to-head tug 'o war battle.
Tesla was bold enough to drive its S, 3, and X on a bridge and on a beach. Perhaps they will challenge the diesel semi head on to prove their worth and that electric vehicles are possible in the semi form factor. What's still unknown is if the vehicle will have enough range to convince trucking companies to switch over from their fuel guzzling fleets.
