This teaser photo of the Tesla semi was the only look people got of it before the reveal. Tesla

Ahead of the live unveiling of the Tesla semi truck, Elon Musk and his company have been tweeting teaser photos of the newest vehicle to be added to the fleet. The semi has been in the works for quite some time and the general public will finally get a look at it Thursday evening.

The debut of the truck is schedule for 8 p.m. PST Thursday and there will be a live stream for anyone looking to follow along who can’t be there in person. But before Musk and Tesla bring out the massive all electric truck, the two have shared some silhouetted photos and video of the truck.

In a tweet Wednesday Musk bragged about his newest accomplishment, saying, “It can transform into a robot, fight aliens and make one hell of a latte,” along with a photo of the truck’s silhouette.

He also added this photo to his instagram with a caption promoting the event where the new truck will be revealed. The caption was simple and to the point, “Thursday 8pm, Tesla Design Studio.”

The actual Tesla Twitter account took it a step further and teased a video of the new semi truck. It’s still only the silhouette and the headlights of the truck but it shows what people can expect from the new truck.

In September, Musk tweeted that the reveal of the truck was tentatively planned for October and that it would involve a test ride. The truck will be fully battery powered and heavy duty for hauling cargo long distances like the conventional semis can. The Tesla trucks won’t be able to do the same length drive as conventional trucks can, Reuters reported in August. Reuters also reported that the semi might have self-driving capabilities, similar to those in the other Tesla passenger vehicles.

Other people have doubted the capabilities of the truck but Musk has said, “This is something which people do not today think is possible they think the truck doesn’t have enough power or it doesn’t have enough range. And then with the Tesla semi we want to show that, no, an electric truck actually can out tork a traditional diesel semi.”

The event comes in the same week that the company was hit with a class-action lawsuit for poor working conditions, the lawsuit also called one of the plants a “hotbed for racist behavior.” This follows slow and behind schedule production of the Model 3. The live event will be broadcast on Tesla's website.
