In InsideEV‘s analysis, it looks as though Tesla was using the Model Y driving in front of the Semi in order to capture footage.

That remains to be seen, but it is intriguing to see a functional Tesla Semi putting in some distance — and it’s striking to imagine the trucks carving out a niche in the trucking industry.
