If the image is legit, the all-electric semi has a futuristic design that will make it stand out among conventionally powered rivals.

Right from the start we should point out the image attached below has not been confirmed in any way to be real by Tesla and there is a chance we could be dealing with a case of a Photoshop job. Originally uploaded on Reddit, removed, and then re-uploaded by another user, the image shows the alleged Tesla semi sitting on a tractor trailer. Teslarati says the pic could have been taken in Kern County, California on an airstrip belonging to the Inyokern Airport, which is located about 150 miles (240 km) north of Tesla’s design center.



Tesla CPO Buying Guide

  Tesla CPO Buying Guide Tesla likes to do everything a little differently. They don’t have dealerships. They don’t have internal combustion engines. They don’t really have door handles (or, at least they don’t until they automatically pop out of the side of the car). The Tesla certified pre-owned program is no different. For instance, each vehicle undergoes a 214-point, seven-hour inspection, and qualifying vehicles get free charging at Tesla’s nationwide network of Superchargers. Read on to learn more about CPO Teslas. Which Used Tesla Vehicles Are Eligible? The Tesla certified pre-owned vehicle limited warranty covers pre-owned vehicles sold by Tesla in the Tesla North America Warranty Region, which comprises all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and all 13 provinces and territories of Canada. All variants in the Model S family – that’s Tesla’s all-electric luxury sedan – are included. The used inventory on Tesla’s website shows Model S cars available in a range of battery size and drivetrain configurations. The batteries range from 60 to 90 kilowatt-hours, and drivetrain configurations include rear- and all-wheel drive. Tesla even offers their performance-oriented models. Tesla’s battery-powered Model X crossover SUV, which went on sale in 2015, is not yet included in the manufacturer’s used vehicle program. Inspection Process Like other certified pre-owned vehicle programs, the used vehicles Tesla validates receive a full inspection before they’re deemed eligible for resale.

Its sleek design does seem to match the teaser image released by Tesla towards the end of April, so we won’t be surprised if this will prove to be in fact the real deal. A closer look at the picture reveals the detachable wind deflector located behind the tractor trailer, and someone has already photoshopped it onto the semi to give us an idea of how it will look like.

The fact that it’s missing the side mirrors and door handles illustrates it is not a production-ready vehicle, but we are likely looking at most of the final design. Seeing it next to a conventional workhorse illustrates the way of the future, not just in terms of design, but also as far as the type of propulsion. Very few technical specifications are known at this point, other than the yet-to-be-confirmed range of 200 to 300 miles (322 to 483 kilometers).

  Jaguar Land Rover reveals a steering wheel right out of Tron Talk about a multi-functional steering wheel, this futuristic version has so much more than volume control buttons.Jaguar Land Rover is taking it one step further, envisioning a self-driving future where we'll only own one part of a car -- the steering wheel. Presumably by 2040 we'll all have a detachable steering wheel that can dock in our homes, functioning as a personal assistant when not in use in a car. Think of it as a Siri-connected steering wheel.
