Tesla Semi Video Shows Its Incredibly Quiet Design in Action

Tesla has been putting the Semi truck through its paces. A new video last week showed the all-electric vehicle put through its paces en route to San Francisco, the latest in a series of appearances ahead of Tesla’s planned release of the truck in the next year.

YouTube user “StevenMConroy” spotted the truck at the Madonna Inn supercharging station on November 2. The five-minute video shows the truck pulling in and parking, but notably at the one-and-a-half minute mark the users open up a cabin to the rear, speculated by XAutoWorkd as a potential sleeper cabin. The truck pulls away soon after, carrying a trailer on the rear, with an incredibly quiet whisk away. The truck, which CEO Elon Musk previously described as handling “like a sports car,” has an acceleration time of 0 to 60 mph in just 20 seconds with 80,000 pounds of cargo.
