There is other information about the Tesla Semi. The battery pack is modular - a set of squares under the semi - a 3 x 3 block. There are 3 subpacks that you could possibly disconnect if you wanted and maybe Tesla will offer lower range trucks with that?

There was a question about the FSD sensor suite. A Twitter user responded that it's hard to get a good picture of that, but there is a front bumper camera and then a separate washer for windshield camera as well.

The pictures of the Tesla Semi come from the Electronic Parts Catalog. There are no gears in the Tesla Semi - it is a purely electric semi that you drive just like any other Tesla. It's always on. You just shift to Drive, Reverse, and Park.

There is a mega charger port on the semi, located just behind the driver side door, that can be used to fast charge it at Megachargers.
