Tesla Semi’s cab design makes it a ‘utterly silly automobile,’ trucker says

A Polish trucker just lately took to Twitter to elucidate why he thinks the Tesla Semi missed the mark when it comes to being a sensible automobile for drivers to make use of day in and day trip.

A Twitter thread shared by truck driver Tomasz Oryński on December 8, 2022, has gone viral for its breakdown of how the Tesla Semi, which just lately celebrated its industrial launch, makes life on the highway harder for the particular person behind the wheel.

I’m going to inform you all why it’s a utterly silly automobile. And I received’t even wish to speak about it’s carrying capability or something. I’ll simply have a look at the cab from the sensible viewpoint of somebody who drives vehicles for a dwelling. As a result of it’s an reverse of being “constructed across the driver,” Orynski acknowledged.

Driver’s Seat within the Heart Might Trigger Issues, Trucker Says

Orynski goes on to discover how the situation of the motive force’s seat within the cab makes on a regular basis duties harder:

Driver sits within the center. This makes overtaking or trying forward harder. But in addition makes it unimaginable to achieve out of the window to go the paperwork or to speak with the man within the gatehouse if you enter a port or a manufacturing facility or, say, a tollbooth,” Orynski stated.

Trucker Calls Out Head-scratching Door Placement

Orynski additionally argues that the position of the doorways on the Tesla Semi isn’t effectively thought-out when it comes to driver consolation.

The doorways are within the again. You enter, grasp your coat, after which should stroll just a few steps ahead to sit down behind the wheel. Because of this you’re losing cab house for a hall mainly. You may’t place a mattress there so the motive force can relaxation, as a result of there are doorways there … And if you wish to get out from the best facet, you’ll want to go over the passenger seat that interlocks with driver’s seat so you’ll be able to’t simply stroll in entrance of it like in a typical cab. And generally you’ll want to get out to the best – I did it immediately as had deep snow on my left,” the Twitter thread continued.

Design Might Trigger Dirtier Cab

Orynski means that the Tesla Semi’s cab design will end in a dirtier truck: “The truth that you need to stroll across the cab means it will likely be filled with mud. The advantage of getting straight into the motive force seat is you could shake the snow or the temper when getting up there, and even when your boots are nonetheless soiled, solely this little piece of ground in entrance of driver’s seat will get soiled. You may kick your boots off there after which stroll round the remainder of the cab barefoot, because it stays clear. Nope, not in Tesla. Except you wish to change your boots everytime you enter the cab which might be actually silly.

Windshield Woes, Mirror Mishaps

Orynski’s gripes proceed. He says that the Tesla Semi’s angled windshield may imply greater blindspots. He additionally says that the sloped windshield will make it more durable to wash off snow and will trigger the cab to overheat (which would require extra air-con, shortening the electrical truck’s vary).

He additionally argues that the truth that the cab will get narrower in entrance signifies that the facet mirrors will want very lengthy arms, making them laborious and even unimaginable to wash from the motive force’s seat.

I can go on. Backside line is that this automobile is a wealthy boy’s toy, not a sensible, working automobile as a result of its designers don’t have any clue in regards to the realities of transport,” Orynski concluded.
