TV star and car fanatic Jay Leno gets a test drive of Tesla's electric Semi

Updated Oct 7, 2023

It pays to be a well-known car fan when it comes to getting special access to one of the trucking industry's most talked about vehicles.

In a Jay Leno's Garage exclusive, Tesla Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen and Tesla's Senior Manager of Semi-Truck Engineering Dan Priestley bring Tesla's new Semi truck by the garage. 

Leno has plenty to say about the Semi, which he likens to driving his Tesla Plaid.

When Telsa's Elon Musk officially delivered the first Semis to Pepsico, he said the Semi "looks like an elephant moving like a cheetah." Hear what Lenbo has to say about it.
