At the recent Frito-Lay visit, Tesla unveiled some new details on their Semi truck. The company discussed the powertrain, interior, and charging details for the Tesla Semi.
The Tesla Semi is powered by four independent electric motors, two of which are powered by a combined 500-mile battery range. The motors are designed to be energy efficient and provide strong acceleration, while maintaining a smooth and quiet ride. The Semi is equipped with Enhanced Autopilot, giving it the capability to automatically change lanes, regulate its speed, and keep a safe distance between vehicles.
The interior of the Semi features seating for up to three occupants and an adjustable central driving position. All occupants will enjoy panoramic windows and ample legroom, as well as two full-size touchscreens for vehicle controls and cargo management.
