Tesla Semi Particulars Revealed In Elements Catalog Diagrams


A Tesla hacker who goes on Twitter by the identify of “inexperienced” has shared a bunch of Tesla Semi diagrams on the social media platform. Once I requested him how he obtained these photos, he stated he acquired them from the automaker’s on-line elements catalog web site, aka EPC.

So, I logged into my Tesla account and regarded for the Tesla Semi elements catalog, nevertheless it was not on the checklist. Apparently, moral hacker “inexperienced” acquired these photographs even earlier than the Tesla Semi catalog was printed by digging deep into the web site.

The division of those modules into totally different blocks could be a sign of a replaceable battery module, as these vehicles can be accumulating a lot of miles of their lifespans. However this has but to be formally confirmed by Tesla (TSLA).

This label additionally consists of Tesla Semi wheel and tire sizes and different respective chilly tire stress rankings as nicely. Nevertheless, for an official affirmation of those numbers, we should anticipate the Tesla Semi proprietor’s handbook.
