    Has anyone seen it actually pulling loads and running a route? I’ve only seen pictures without a load.

    It has a trailer while making the rounds to future customers. It had to unhook to get close enough to the Supercharger. They said they use the trailer when making runs between the Freemont Factory and Gigafactory 1.

    Unlikely a full load on board, but it might look something close to this.......and hopefully with a logo too.

    Wow I’m surprised they have an actual USDOT number. The only funny thing is the IFTA, how does that work? Tesla will be paying a pretty hefty tax every quarter
