The big reveal of Tesla’s new semi truck (or ‘lorry’ to us Brits) is over three weeks away, but thanks to an eagle-eyed Reddit user, we’re getting a cheeky, early look.

A photo showing the truck completely undisguised was posted in the Tesla subreddit before being deleted and re-uploaded, and although we can’t be 100 per cent sure it’s the real deal, it certainly looks to match a previous teaser shot. The Reddit user has even had a crack at Photoshopping on the fairing.

At the time of the teaser image’s release, Tesla CEO Elon Musk described the incoming truck as a “beast.” The vehicle - due to be revealed on 26 October in Hawthorne, California - is expected to have a range of 200 - 300 miles initially, eventually competing with the 1000 mile ranges commonly achieved by conventional diesel-powered lorries.

The new vehicle forms part of Tesla’s wide-ranging expansion plans, which include releasing a ‘Model Y’ compact crossover plus a pick-up truck, and seriously ramping up Model 3 production.
