If the carmaker targets significant logistics through its convoy of trucks, it would potentially differentiate itself from its rivals, and have the upper hand in selling its self-driving electric trucks.

Yesterday, Reuters reported that Tesla (TSLA) is working on a self-driving semi-truck, but we all know that right now what matters is its mass-market Model 3. So far, no companies have tested self-driving trucks in Nevada without a person inside.

Platooning could mean that the autonomy requirements aren't much more technically advanced that those found in current Autopilot systems for consumer Tesla vehicles. Waymo, the Alphabet company created from the Google self-driving vehicle project, has also recently revealed that it's also in the early stages of creating autonomous truck tech.

The press-Secretary of the DMV's Jessica Gonzalez (Jessica Gonzalez) told Reuters that on Wednesday the official representatives of California had a meeting with Tesla management to discuss the company's work on driverless trucks.

Musk revealed Tesla's plans to build autonomous, electric big rigs last September, as part of his Master Plan, Part 2.

Tesla will be joining the self-driving locomotive space alongside Uber and Waymo.

The company has reportedly achieved certain production efficiencies with the Model X, allowing Tesla to pass on the savings to customers by reducing the price of the electric SUV.

"Such a startlingly rapid ramp in production is an important element in Tesla staying ahead of the likely competitive surge that will come from other more established automakers and, potentially, technology firms such as Apple and Google", Moody's analysts wrote in a research note Thursday. However, in order to speed up production and bring the vehicle closer to market faster, Tesla will be able to greatly reduce research and development costs by leveraging Model 3's test-proven platform. Last October, the Silicon Valley startup Otto used an autonomous truck to ship beer in Colorado.

Nevada has all vehicle types and weights covered, but Tesla hasn't taken any formal action on it yet. The auto was a normal production vehicle with standard low rolling resistance tyres and during the test the air conditioning was kept off.

Self-driving technology relies on lidar, or light detection and ranging, scanning. Sadly, there's no information on how much power the standard auto makes yet.

Tesla can use the convoy formation to its advantage as it can either get it into the transportation business, or it could market its trucks to major transporters, who would carry several products from one place to another. As one lithium-ion battery researcher explains to Reuters, the massive batteries required would basically be the truck's cargo.

'Your cargo essentially becomes the battery, ' Viswanathan said of the massive batteries that would be needed to make range competitive with diesel.

By comparison, the company's electric local package delivery trucks travel up to 80 miles on a full charge.
