Tesla Semi Spotted on San Francisco Bridge

A Tesla Semi was seen driving along the San Francisco bridge. It's a majestic and beautiful, along with quiet, vehicle.

Tesla Semi Spotted on San Francisco Bridge

We recently saw a Tesla semi on the San Francisco bridge. It's a beautiful, quiet, and fast vehicle. Gail Alfar, from Twitter, shared a brief 9 second video of the Tesla semi on the San Francisco bridge.

This is the first time the Tesla semi has been recorded driving on public roads like this. It could have been the same model seen earlier on the streets of San Francisco.

Tesla has begun production of the Tesla semi for PepsiCo. With news of Giga Berlin and Giga Texas, along with the new Model Y with 4680 batteries and Cybertruck, one can forget about the Tesla semi.

Tesla will be able to open up a new market with the Tesla semi. It will produce Tesla semis for companies that require shipping of large amounts of products. PepsiCo is just the first contract for Tesla.

Tesla in Mass Production

It's a good sign to see the Tesla semi program rolling along. This short video shows just how amazing the Tesla semi is.

Tesla semi will start in the U.S. and I haven't heard plans from Tesla to build it in other countries - but it makes sense for Tesla to do so. There's a lot of land in other countries besides the United States, and those countries have a need to ship products just like the U.S. does.

As I think about who Tesla will make semis for, I think about the other companies that can make use of it. City Furniture, a retailer of furniture is one such company. Walmart and Anheuser-Busch are other companies that would be able to make use of the Tesla semi and have had news about ordering the Tesla semi in the past.

Right now the list of companies using the Tesla semi is small, but as the vehicle gets tested and shows reliability, along with the bugs being worked out, we will start to see more and more of the Tesla semi on our roads.

Perhaps the next semi you see while on the freeway will be a Tesla semi!

Is this semi from Tesla just a test vehicle? Are we going to start to see more sightings of the Tesla semi?

Such great news! I live in Metro Boston (against my preferences) and near a major highway. The federal noise pollution laws are ignored and the Semis pollute the environment in more than one way. I hope Tesla's semis and Toyotas as well do very well in the market. It pains me to see personal vehicle EV mandates lead commercial mandates. Keep the coverage coming!
