ETS2 Fans Have Been Waiting 5 Years for This Truck

The Semi truck from Tesla had a chance to hit the streets of ATS. However, this did not happen, and the matter was picked up by modders, independently introducing the vehicle to ETS2.

SCS Software suggested a few years ago that it may introduce the Semi truck from Tesla to ATS, which excited some fans of the simulator. However, a few years have passed, and the proposal went off the radar. However, it can be done with the help of mods.

Well, where's that Tesla

The aforementioned tweet appeared 5 years ago. Since then we have not heard much about the introduction of an electric truck to the game. There may be several reasons for this, the most of which likely seems to be the fact that Semi has yet to hit the streets.

The trucks from Tesla can only be preordered, and the first models are expected to hit the streets next year. On the subject of Semi, it is worth noting that it will be available in two variants, for 150 thousand and 180 thousand dollars. When it comes to specification, they differ in the distance they are able to cover.

The second reason could be that it would be necessary to introduce charging stations for electric cars to ATS. Nobody knows the truth. Except for modders.

Leave it to the modders

Modders have addressed the lack of Semi in the game. However, not in the aforementioned ATS but Euro Truck Simulator 2. There are several projects introducing Semi to the game, such as Tesla Truck 2020 or Tesla Semi Truck.

The bad news is that most of them are not compatible with the current version of ETS2, that is 1.44. As the creator of the mod wrote in the description of the video, the last time he tested Tesla Semi Truck was on version 1.40.

However, this can be remedied. Steamenables us to change the game version to an earlier one, so you will be able to test the Semi in ETS2. On the other hand, whether the truck will officially make it to any of the games will probably be revealed closer to the actual release of the vehicle in 2023.
