Tesla will unveil its semi-truck this Thursday, November 16 at its Design Center in Hawthorne, California.

Tesla's latest over-the-air update also includes an 'Easy Entry' system, whereby the car can move the driver's seat and steering wheel to the best positions for easy entry and exit.

Six unidentified employees told the media news channel that Tesla's declare that the firings were completely based on their performance assessment reviews which were unfeasible as of no reviews had been taken place since the SolarCity was obtained by Tesla in the year 2016. He says they've now managed to climb back to Level 8 and should be cruising out of the very deep pit that saw Tesla deliver only 220 units of the all-new electric sedan during the third quarter.

One image claimed to have caught the truck resting in an area where Tesla is known to test its vehicles while a video showed a mule pulling away effortlessly with a trailer behind it. That's about the extent of information we have on the truck from other sources outside Elon Musk.

Now that the release is drawing near, Musk posted another Tweet that's full of praise for the electric truck. The firings of workers have affected everybody from factory employees to engineers to executives.

The launch of a Tesla truck will provide the much needed morale boost, since a futuristic truck could potentially change the landscape of the freight shipping and commercial land transportation industry.

Not many thought Tesla would venture so quickly into the world of trucking considering the massive challenges it already faces with Model 3 production and deliveries.

Let's just hope he isn't referring to his abysmal oratorical skills reaching a new low when he says the event would "blow our minds away", but is talking about the truck instead.
