Semitrucks are known for being loud, slow, and gas guzzlers, but Tesla Inc TSLA is looking to change that with the all-electric Tesla Semi rumored to ship later this year.
A video posted to Twitter (NSFW language warning) appears to show the Tesla Semi driving up next to other cars on the freeway. The people recording the video were yelling in excitement to see a Tesla semi. But the semi was driving directly next to the car with no or minimal noise.
It's quite interesting to see a semi barreling down the highway without hearing the roar normally associated with such a large vehicle.

Recently, different versions of the Tesla Semi have been spotted, but this seems to be the original version unveiled in 2017. The Semi was planned for release in 2019 but has since been delayed.
Tesla's Semi will come in two versions: a short-range 300-mile version, and a long-range 500-mile version, both ratings are when the truck has a full load.
