If Elon Musk’s statements ring true, the 500-mile variant of the Tesla Semi should start shipping later this year. As the EV maker approaches this target date, it appears that Tesla has been busying itself with stress-testing the Class 8 all-electric truck.

A recent sighting of the Tesla Semi as it was being transported in Louisville has caught the attention of many in the electric vehicle community. The vehicle itself looked like it was production ready as it reflected the truck’s updated design. But more importantly, the vehicle looked battle-scarred, almost like it was in an accident.
