Tesla Semi has the potential to be a revolutionary product in the trucking industry and the automaker is seeking feedback from customers before bringing the vehicle to market.
Now, the company is giving an electric semi truck test drive to an important new customer.
As we reported last month, Albertsons Companies, one of the largest food and drug retailers in the United States and the owner of Safeway, announced that they ordered 10 all-electric Tesla Semi trucks to be used in its Southern California fleet.
The company operates an important fleet of over 1,400 trucks and it could potentially become a large customer for Tesla’s electric truck program.
Tomorrow, Tesla is giving them a “demo” of the vehicle and they will let Albertsons test drive the Tesla Semi prototype.
A user on Tesla’s subreddit posted a memo about them seeking drivers for the test drives at their Safeway distribution center in Tracy, California.
