Before the Tesla Semi trucks are delivered in December to Pepsi Co, the first company to take delivery of the new all-electric Semi, we’ve received a pretty impressive video of it in action. The rare glimpse shows its impressively quick and smooth acceleration from a complete stop.

For those who didn’t know, earlier this summer the company surprised many by confirming that the Tesla Semi would hit the streets before 2023. Then we recently learned that Pepsi ordered at least 100 semi trucks and would make several of the first Models.

Elon Musk recently said that the Tesla Semi has a range of 500 miles and is “super fun to drive. If you’re wondering how much fun, you’ll want to check out the video below. seen on twitter. The Semi stops at a roundabout, then quickly accelerates to high speeds as it prepares to enter a freeway.

If you’ve ever seen a regular diesel semi accelerate, it’s slow, jerky, and changes gear several times every few seconds. None of this is smooth or fast. However, we’re seeing the exact opposite with the Tesla Semi truck skidding thanks to all the instant torque from three electric motors.

While it’s not clear if the Tesla Semi seen in the video has a full charge, you can clearly see how well it performs. There are no changes every few seconds, loss of momentum or anything. Instead, he just flies up the street like nothing happened.

For the record, Tesla already confirmed that the Semi could go from 0 to 60 MPH in about 20 seconds, even with a full 82,000-pound payload. I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty impressive compared to the diesel-powered competition.

Tesla will launch two variants, one with 300 miles of range for $150,000 and a secondary option for $180,000 that can go nearly 500 miles on a single charge.

The company claims its new electric semi trucks are mostly maintenance-free. And those who use one can expect to save $200,000 every two years per truck. The first time you see the Tesla Semi on the road, you’ll probably be pulling a Pepsi trailer.
