Tesla Semi Shows Up In Dallas, Home Of Frito-Lay (PepsiCo)

MAR 21 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 3

It’s starting to seem like the Tesla Semi is on an unofficial, unannounced U.S. tour.

Just days after two Tesla Semis completed a maiden public cargo journey between the Tesla factory in Fremont, California and the Gigafactory in Sparks, Nevada, the larger silver tractor was spotted at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in St. Louis, Missouri. Now, it’s been spotted at the Tesla Service Center in Dallas, Texas.

Photos of the semi were tracked down by Teslarati, as originally shared by the Tesla Owners Club of North Texas. Below is the group’s Instagram post:

We have no idea if Dallas was a scheduled stop for any particular reason. The semi could have easily just been passing through. However, Frito-Lay’s headquarters is located there. PepsiCo. pre-ordered 100 Tesla Semis and is affiliated with Frito-Lay.

So, if this is much like the “Budweiser” trip, perhaps Tesla is making an effort to visit each of the companies that plan on purchasing the upcoming semis.

My brother lives right near there! Wish I’d known it was in town before hand, I would have sent him over with a camera! 🙂

Someone also updated electrek to confirm that it was a demonstration for PepsiCO, located in Plano.

It sucks having to wait for electric semis to replace all the dirty loud diesel exhaust belching beasts off the road. Hopefully it take no more than ten years, but probably twenty. My lungs and heart can’t wait twenty years.

It’s going to take a long time, orders for class 8 trucks
