Watch the Tesla Semi Prototype Quietly Glide Down the Street

The vehicle, spotted in YouTube footage uploaded by Brandon Camargo, shows a block model of the truck driving past the UPS Customer Center in Sunnyvale, California, a 20-minute drive from Tesla’s headquarters in Palo Alto. In the seven-second video, the Semi drives past with barely a whisper, swiftly passing through the intersection.
When Musk took the wraps off the truck at a November 2017 event, it defied expectations. Prior to the reveal, hydrogen truck rival Nikola described rumored plans as “bad for Tesla’s balance sheet,” and two researchers from Carnegie Mellon University said the truck would have limited range. The Semi beat the odds, with a 500-mile model retailing for $180,000 with a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of just five seconds.
