Recently, several Tesla Semi prototypes have been seen being transported in various parts of the United States. Another prototype of the white Semi was spotted in Northern Minnesota on March 18.
Recently, more and more positive news has appeared about the start of production of the Tesla Semi. They emerged in parallel with the sighting of the first Semi prototype with an updated and previously unseen design in California and Illinois. Just a few days ago, Tesla unveiled the first official video with an updated design for its electric semi truck.
Now Tesla Semi was spotted in Northern Minnesota by one of the members of the local Tesla club, who managed to take a photo. Semi was transported on a trailer, like the previously seen units. Perhaps the truck showed up here in order to pass some road tests or was simply transported somewhere further.
As with the previously spotted Semis, this one also had a few design differences:
According to information from a parts supplier to Tesla, the company intends to begin pilot production of the Semi in July 2021, in Nevada. Full production will begin in August 2021, also at Giga Nevada. Thus, it is planned to accumulate at least 350 cumulative builds by August 2021. In light of this information, it appears that the trucks seen are test vehicles undergoing final testing, after which pilot production will begin.
