In a couple months, when everyone is fussing about the Model 3 ramp, the Tesla Semi will rush from the shadows and shock us. Tesla’s vast commercial applications will suddenly tickle the brain more than the bland ol’ Model 3 ramp.
It’s tempting to say the Semi kicks off the second part of Tesla’s master plan, but the plan never mentions big rigs at all. It never mentions the Roadster either. Yet we know both are coming. This means the master plan is like Loch Ness. It’s vast and inky. Big things could lurk within. Things as big as a city bus. Why should BYD have that market to itself? Tesla said it’s not going to build a minibus, but TeslaMondo is talking maxi.
What else lurks in the Loch Ness Master Plan? Paging Mr. Nimoy . . .
