Watch Tesla’s Semi Truck Get Tested in Harsh Conditions [VIDEO]
The Tesla Semi debuted earlier this month with a delivery event for PepsiCo, and the automaker has since shared some footage of the electric semi truck’s rigorous testing, as a way to help encourage engineers to apply.
Tesla engineers tested the Semi in a range of harsh conditions, as seen in a video posted on LinkedIn by the automaker on Tuesday.
In addition, the video’s caption included a link to a Vehicle Test Engineer position for the Semi, which is based at the company’s Fremont, California Gigafactory.
