In October, electric vehicle maker Tesla will join the growing number of semi-tractor manufacturers who are creating electric trucks to pull our nation’s freight. They claim it out-performs and out-pulls its diesel counterparts. The bigger question though seems to be how “autonomous” is it. Though Tesla CEO Elon Musk claims it’s not self-driving at all, some more subtle indications from him and others at Tesla point to its ability to convoy behind another driven truck along with some other features.
