Tesla Semi Spotted in Palo Alto, California [PIC]
Tesla’s upcoming electric Semi has been on the public’s mind for years now, and as the vehicle gets closer to coming to fruition, users are seeing the truck around in the wild.
A Tesla Semi was spotted in Palo Alto, California as shared in a photo posted to Reddit on Tuesday.
The photo shows a close-up of the electric semi-truck, with no trailer attached to the back.
One user noted that Tesla uses its Semis to deliver materials from the Fremont factory to its Nevada factory, which the user says helps with both material transport and research and development of the Semi through use.

Earlier this year, Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed that production of the Semi would not take place in 2022, with earliest projections holding that substantial production will begin in 2023.
In addition, Tesla was awarded a patent for an automatically inflating tire system for the Semi just last month, not unlike those seen in many military vehicles and other heavy-duty trucks.
