Tesla Semi made many people all of the sudden interested in semi trucks. The silence you hear, when the Tesla Semi backs up, is amazing. It feels like a celebrity walks into the restaurant you are dining at.
Even people, who don't love trucks, love the Semi. "I have never liked them. They are big, loud giants that stalk you on the roads.
