Tesla Semi, Cybertruck, Elon Musk, Franz Holzhausen, and the Tesla Design Center
Tesla Semi Truck has been out of the picture for a while but this past Sunday a red prototype was seen being transported on a trailer bed, the following video of the scene was recorded at an unidentifiable location, but it sure was moving in the direction of the Tesla Design Center in Hawthorne, California as it was later on spotted at there.
To welcome the Tesla Semi truck at the Design Center, not only the Cybertruck but the Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the cyber-glass-breaker Design Chief Franz von Holzhausen were also present there to receive it as we can see in the featured picture above (pics courtesy of Cybertruck Subreddit).
Interestingly, the red Tesla Semi prototype seen on the trailer bed has all the windows covered from the inside with likely something that would block the sun rays from getting in, the headlights were also covered with white tape, this might mean it was coming from a fairly far distance and the interior and lights needed protection to reach the destination in scratchless condition.
This might also be a hint that this unit is a newly built prototype because recently Tesla sent the reservation holders an email that is suggesting limited production will start 2nd half of 2020.

Both Elon and Franz are tall guys around 6.2″ each and the Cybertruck‘s height at the peak of the roof seems to be barely below Franz’s head, a tall truck it is indeed. Tesla Cybertruck Dual and Tri-Motor variants are expected to go into production in 2021, pulled back a full year from the unveiling announcement.
Now when you step inside the Tesla Design Center, the main photo that greets you is the Cybertruck, we are not sure which picture was there previously but putting the Cybertruck photo there shows the Tesla team’s strong confidence in the polarizing design of its pickup truck.
As we reported earlier today that Jay Leno has been spotted driving the Cybertruck with Elon Musk in LA, and a camera car chasing it strongly suggest that an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage on the Cybertruck is on its way, it would be entertaining, we look forward to it.
According to Elon Musk, after opening the new Tesla Design Center in Shanghai, China, the Silicon Valley-based automaker also intends to open the 3rd Design Center in Europe, and that we know would be near the Gigafactory 4 in Germany.
Looks like big plans on expanding the Tesla vehicle lineup in the future are also building up in the background as recently Elon Musk said that a smaller Tesla car probably a 2-door hatchback might come out from the Chinese Tesla Design Center — Tesla China also released a teaser concept of a car with the job openings they posted online.
If this is not 100% realized, no one will be unhappy, a compact #Tesla car for China and the Asian countries would be a breeze in terms of affordability and low cost of ownership! pic.twitter.com/mg71acr4CR— X Auto - Tesla & EVs (@XAutoWorld100) January 17, 2020
