Tesla has bolstered its set of diecast scale models with the addition the all-electric Semi truck.

According to Tesla’s description for the Semi model in 1:24 scale, the same 3D CAD data used for the full size truck was used to design and produce its miniature tribute under meticulous oversight by Tesla’s Design Team at California. The miniature scale model in pearlescent silver has a size of 292 mm long x 124 mm wide x 172 mm high and weights a strong 3.3 lbs.

Tesla’s online shop also offers miniature versions of the Model S, Model X and Model 3 that also carry the same $250 price tag. They’re also sized slightly larger at 1:18 scale and are offered with more color variants compared to diecast Tesla Semi.

The ‘real’ Tesla Semi is a quad motor truck that has a powertrain derived from the Model 3. Since its show in November 2017, the all-electric big rig has been well-received by major companies that have focused on reducing the ecological impact of their supply chain. PepsiCo, FedEx, and UPS, to mention a few, have placed reservations for a joint 2,000 Tesla Semi trucks based on CEO Elon Musk and CTO JB Straubel in the firm ’s Q1 2018 earnings call.

The Tesla Semi is expected to revolutionize the trucking business with more affordable ‘fuel’ prices, higher performance, and enhanced safety. Tesla’s Semi truck boasts a 500-mile variety, 0-60 mph time of 5 minutes and can support 80,000 lbs of cargo hauling capacity, according to the firm.

Production of this Tesla Semi is expected to start sometime this year. If Tesla has taken serious heed of its Model 3 production lessons, that schedule may just be more reliable than what customers have been accustomed to over the years. For the time being, admiration of the truck in-person is currently available in bite-size form.
