Now that we're seeing Tesla's Semi looking production ready in the public eye. The next question is whats next for electric semi's? Could Rivian join?


Tesla Semi Rare Testing May Reveal Towing Capacity
This rare Tesla Semi real-road testing possibly reveals the towing capacity. Look how much weight is in it and let's calculate.
It's great to see Tesla Semi in live testing. How cool it is to have a job like this and to test Tesla Semi in the company. I would like to know how much that load weights. Lock blocks are approximately 4,000 lbs each. I counted there are 9. So the load on the flat bed is about 36,000 pounds. Thus, we can conclude that the Tesla Semi can easily tow at least 36,000 pounds of weight.
