Now you might think the Tesla Motors semi; just a truck or a hauler. Ha. This Tesla Semi is like a spaceship inside. Plus it’s a real semi truck for shipping products across the Country.
First of all, just look inside this thing!!
So as Tesla reports:
Unlike other trucks, the Semi’s cabin is designed specifically around the driver. So it’s featuring unobstructed stairs for easier entry and exit. As well as full standing room inside. Furthermore a centered driver position for optimal visibility.
Likewise, it has Two touchscreen displays positioned symmetrically on both sides of the driver. All to provide easy access to navigation, blind spot monitoring and electronic data logging. Plus Built-in connectivity integrating directly with a fleet’s management system. Therefore to support routing and scheduling, and remote monitoring. Diesel trucks today now require several third-party devices for similar functionality.
Ok I just call this that Spaceship. Look at the two computers on either side of the windows and the way the seats set up over everything but designed different inside a usual truck. I mean amazing. Just amazing.
Then on top of it all its safe!!
According to Tesla:
The Tesla Semi’s all-electric architecture is designed to have a higher safety standard. Better than any other heavy-duty truck on the market. Especially with a reinforced battery that shields the Semi from impact. As well as gives it an exceptionally low center of gravity. Its windshield is made of impact resistant glass. Jackknifing prevented due to the Semi’s onboard sensors that detect instability. Furthermore react with positive or negative torque to each wheel. All the while independently actuating all brakes.
The surround cameras aid object detection and lower blind spots, automatically alerting the driver to safety hazards and obstacles. With Enhanced Autopilot, the Tesla Semi features Automatic Emergency Braking, Automatic Lane Keeping, Lane Departure Warning, and event recording.
