The Tesla Semi reportedly began limited production last month at the company’s Sparks, Nevada production facility, and a new set of photos shows two of the Semi units docked outside of the factory.

@Sawyer Merritt spotted two Tesla Semis at Gigafactory Nevada, as shown in a series of photos shared on Wednesday.

In the photos, three out of four of which are taken at night, you can see that one of the electric Semis has its frunk open, despite the light making it difficult to see.

One of the photos is taken during the day, though it only includes one Tesla Semi beside a nearby Model Y and a Subaru vehicle.

California distributor Karat Packaging also announced an order for 10 Tesla Semis in December, set to be added to the company’s fleet of 86 trucks and trailers.

In November, reports held that PepsiCo would be receiving its delivery of 15 Tesla Semis earlier than planned in 2021, though Tesla has said it won’t begin delivering the electric semi-trucks until 2023.

The Tesla Semi, originally announced in 2017, has been repeatedly delayed since then, though 2021 was the upcoming vehicle’s biggest year yet, with a number of units spotted testing and getting their own Tesla Semi Megachargers, among other upgrades.
