Tesla Semi electric truck prototypes seem to get no time off and as you can see on this new video from highway 405 in Los Angeles, there are some big concrete blocks that need to be delivered.
Sadly, the market introduction is now expected in 2020 (instead of late 2019), but hopefully the silent and zero-emission trucks will finally take off.
We already saw the Semi with various trailers, which means that Tesla gathers data to develop the best possible production version. This open load on this particular Semi is new to us though.
