Tesla has come a long way over the years. It’s gearing up to start mass production of its first mass-market electric car, the $35,000 Model 3. The company has also confirmed that it’s working on an all-electric semi truck. Tesla CEO Elon Musk previously revealed that the truck will be properly unveiled in September this year. He has now shared a teaser image of the Tesla electric semi truck.
Musk shared the teaser image of the Tesla electric semi truck during the TED talk he gave about the various projects that he has been working on. The image was shown soon after Musk detailed the vision for his “Boring Company.”
He talked about the Tesla electric semi truck briefly during his talk, mentioning that the prototype is working and that he was even able to get a test drive in the parking lot. He even remarked that the truck “feels like a sports car.”
Musk pointed out that the semi truck will be capable of making long-haul trips, which is certainly essential for a semi truck. The image doesn’t reveal much but the truck appears to be of the same size and form as a class 8 truck.
It looks sleeker than a conventional semi truck and you’ll notice that it doesn’t seem to have any side mirrors, at least not the concept teased, anyway. Will it have any Autopilot features? Only time will tell. Tesla will reveal more information about the semi truck in September this year.
