You’ve never seen a semi accelerate this quickly before with a trailer attached.

This video was captured during the recent Tesla Semi trip from the Gigfactory to the automaker’s Fremont facility.

After completing its turn, the Tesla Semi accelerates with a quickness never before witnessed in semi form.

Video description:

“My dashcam’s point of view of the acceleration of the Tesla Semi. I attempted to follow the trucks, but lost them as they got on to I-80 westbound.”

Not sure if loaded or empty but very impressive nevertheless.

It’s Acceleration like That That KILLS RANGE No wonder they have to stop And Re-Charge as Often as they do…

Truck violated the right of way of traffic but somewhat ironic that it was a pickup.

Ya, it’s impressive how quick it accelerated (although I don’t know if I really want my goods accelerated THAT quickly) but how about you don’t be an ahole and pull out in front of people regardless of what your semi can do…

Good example why autonomous is such a worthwhile goal to have.

That truly was some piss poor driving
on the Tesla drivers part. Accident waiting to happen type driver.

You don’t want a semi accelerating this fast. It’s too tempting to human drivers, and will cause terrible accidents.

For autonomously driven trucks, on the other hand, the more acceleration the better.

It’s hard to tell by the angle, but I think the pickup truck let the semi in. Given where the pickup truck is after the turn, if it didn’t let the semi in then the semi literally pulled out right in front of it and you would have had squealing brakes, lots of honking, all the agro indications, but none of that happened.
