He says the two together are 'between 60-70 thousand gross vehicle weight' when they first tow the truck.

Yeah, this leads me to believe the Tesla Semi could be around 24k lbs. Enclosed cargo trailers usually weigh around 15k lbs. Don't know how much a flatbed trailer weighs, but if around the same then 24k + 24k + 15k = 63k lbs total. I believe usual diesel trucks weigh around 20k lbs.

I'm going to have to watch it again. So much to digest about the design, tech, and methodology.

I found the convo about the suicide door and which side the door hinge would be on and how it would effect the overall cab shape fascinating.

Jay Leno is a rare bird in the classic car world with his embrace and understanding on vehicle electrification. I'm really glad about being able to watch his videos and learn.
Jay Leno is a turkey?

They weigh from 20-35k depending upon add-ons. CleanTechnica was estimating the weight of the Tesla Semi as 8000 pounds over the average.

We don't really know yet, though.

I hope they make something really unique when Cybertruck is released. Leno is a great advertisement, but I would like a Halloween themed release with a Zombie Apocalypse setting. Cybertruck would be perfect for The Last of Us

I heard it was actually Conan who was supposed to drive the Tesla Semi.
And Jay Leno swooped in and stole it at the last minute.

Up to 1,500 horse power depending on clients specs. Will we see a 1,500 HP Cybertruck?
I don't know about the full 1,500 HP but I think we could see more than the 1,020 HP of the Plaid. Usually the bottle neck is the battery and the larger pack on the Cybertruck should allow for higher power output than the Model S.

I was on a boat yesterday and they had a motor racing channel on the TVs. They were showing SEMI TRACTOR racing! All I could think about was, I bet the Tesla Semi could rip them all up!
