Tesla CEO Elon Musk has introduced a catchy tagline for the upcoming Tesla Semi – it “will blow your mind clear out of your skull and into an alternate dimension.”
The company is set to unveil the truck Thursday at a livestreamed event starting at 8 p.m. PT (11 p.m. ET). Musk tweeted Sunday about the event.

Musk has been hyping the Tesla Semi hard. He previously called the truck a “beast” and “unreal.”
Little is known about the truck beyond a few reports of range and some possible photos of a prototype.
Reports have suggested the truck will have a range of 200-300-miles, is intended for short trips, and will include some self-driving capabilities. Musk says the truck’s specs are better than reported.
Semi specs are better than anything I've seen reported so far. Semi eng/design team work is aces, but other needs are greater right now.

While it’s exciting to see Tesla introduce a new vehicle, the company’s current production woes likely complicate the timeline for the Tesla Semi. It’s also unclear where the vehicle will be manufactured, as Tesla’s current facilities are maxed out. It will be interesting to see if the Tesla Semi program will be housed in a new factory.
