The Tesla Semi is on tour and UPS is pretty geeked.

Over the course of the last few weeks, we've shared several stories of Tesla Semi sightings in various locations. Recently, the Tesla Semi visited J.B. Hunt's headquarters in Arkansas. Following that stop, it made its way to Addison, IL (some 600 miles away) to provide UPS employees with a first up-close look, as well as test rides. UPS currently holds a reservation for 125 Tesla Semis, which is one of the largest orders to date.

@IllinoisUPSers posted some images and videos of the Tesla Semi to its Twitter account. As you can see, the event was a hit and the employees seemed enamored with the vehicle's ride quality. Additionally, Tesla’s VP for Truck and Programs Jerome Guillen was on hand for the experience.

Now that the behemoth is out on a public tour, onlookers have shared on Twitter that Tesla employees have been more than willing to allow tours of the semi. The automaker has also answered questions without hesitation and given permission for people to take pictures freely. This wasn't the case early on. It seems we'll be seeing and hearing a lot more about the Tesla Semi in the near future.
