Although Tesla only has plans to start producing its electric semi truck model in 2019, a prototype of the Semi was recently spotted on the road in California. The seven-second clip shows a cargoless matte black Tesla Semi cruising through a residential street in Sunnyvale, California.

Apparently, the prototype Semi was traveling between Tesla’s factory in Fremont and its Palo Alto headquarters. Despite the clip being short, the electric semi-truck looked to be covering quite a distance — quickly highlighting its specs that caught the attention of big-name companies. Pepsi, Walmart and Anheuser-Busch have already put in orders for Tesla’s upcoming commercial venture.

Watch the clip of a Tesla Semi being tested on the streets of Palo Alto above and let us know what you think. Also, make sure to check out this video of a Tesla Model X saving a semi-truck stuck in snow.
