Tesla is working to secure permission to test an autonomous, all-electric long-haul truck in Nevada and it doesn’t want anyone riding along in the cab.
The truck also has platooning capabilities, according to Reuters which reported today that it obtained an email between Tesla and the State of Nevada.
According to DMV officials in California, Telsa’s also meeting with them to introduce new staff and discuss its autonomous trucks.
To date, autonomous truck testing in Nevada and California has been carried out with people present in the cabs.
Tesla announced earlier this year that it will be unveiling an all-electric long-haul truck in September.
