Tesla Teases All-Electric Semi-Truck Ahead Of Reveal Next Week


After a few delays, Tesla appears ready to reveal its first all-electric semi truck next week.

Next week will mark a significant milestone for Tesla, as the automaker will be revealing its highly-anticipated electric semi-truck at the brand’s design center in Hawthorne, California. Ahead of its debut, Tesla has released another teaser image as part of an invitation to the reveal event hosted by Elon Musk which kicks off at 7:00 PM Pacific time, suggesting that Tesla is still on track to show off its first all-electric semi-truck to the world on November 16 after several delays.

Initially, Tesla was planning to lift the wraps off the electric semi on October 26, but pushed it back three weeks to November 16 due to the Model 3’s ongoing production issues. Because when your first mass-produced EV is in the midst of “deep production hell,” revealing a prototype of a future truck isn’t going to be at the top of Tesla’s priorities. Like the initial teaser, the image is rather revealing and shows some of the semi’s design features from a front three-quarter angle, including its LED headlights and wrap-around windshield positioned below a row of slender lights. Other details remain hidden, but thanks to renders and a spy photo we have a good idea what Tesla's electric semi-truck will look like.

In fact, the teaser looks a lot like the prototype truck that was recently spotted being tested in California. Now known simply as the Tesla Truck, the automaker’s first all-electric semi is being positioned as a short to mid-range truck rather than a long-hauler, with an expected range of 200–300 miles. However, Elon Musk has hinted that the semi’s final specifications will be better than what reports have suggested. We’ll find out next week if Musk’s claims are true when Tesla’s prototype electric truck is finally shown to the public.
