As you may or may not be aware, Tesla has been working on an electric semi-truck and Elon Musk just revealed a teaser image of it and typically of such images not much can be deduced in terms of actual detail - apart for a natty pair of headlights.

We have studied the image as closely as we can and noticed that it doesn’t have any side view mirrors, the headlights will have hockey-stick-shaped LED DRLs and that the cab marker lighting appears to look like conventional class 8 trucks currently on the road. However the strangest thing about this truck is that the cab seems to be the full height of the trailer. Conventional truck cabs are lower than this but the Tesla doesn’t appear to be designed that way. The front end isn’t clear at all but could resemble the face of the Model S and the few panels that are visible look pretty sleek.  

Back in September last year, Tesla hired employees from Daimler's SuperTruck semi truck programme to work on the Tesla EV semi - and a concept will be revealed this coming September. The teaser image was taken from Musk’s TED talk at the 2017 TED Conference in Vancouver where he said that he had already driven it. He revealed that the newbie will beat a diesel truck's range and torque and that it’ll feel like driving a sportscar. It'll take a massive battery to beat a diesel truck’s range which on average is around 1,600km but feel like a sportscar too? Er, we'll take his word for it…
