A mysterious photo of a truck has sparked speculation that it could be Tesla's big-rig

Tesla semi possibleReddit/itookapicofarocketAn image of a semitrailer was posted to Reddit on Tuesday that some are speculating could be Tesla’s electric truck.

We may have gotten a first glimpse of Tesla’s electric big-rig.

A photo of a semitrailer was posted to Tesla’s Reddit thread on Tuesday that many are speculating could be the first shot of the electric truck. The original poster reportedly said he got the photo from a friend who was at “an undisclosed place in California where they test Tesla vehicles.”

The user who first put up the photo has since deleted it, but a moderator re-posted the image shortly thereafter. Still, the inability to contact the source makes it difficult to verify the photo. A Tesla representative said the company doesn’t comment on speculation.

As many on the Reddit thread have noted, the image does seem to resemble Tesla’s teaser image for the semitrailer. The truck has the same general build and the headlights have a similar narrow shape.

Tesla will unveil its electric semitrailer on October 26 in Hawthorne, California. It will have a 200- to 300-mile range and have self-driving capabilities, Reuters reported.
