Tesla Semi wows the crowd at the Modesto Christmas parade

The Tesla Semi wowed the crowds attending the annual Celebration of Lights Christmas Parade in Modesto, California.

Tesla recently delivered the first of its Class 8 Tesla Semi all-electric vehicles, which have three times more power than other diesel trucks on the road, at Frito-Lay and Pepsi on Thursday. After taking delivery of the vehicle, Frito-Lay debuted the Class 8 truck at the Modesto Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 3.

The annual theme for the Modesto Celebration of Lights in 2022 was “Rushing Through the Decades”. Twitter user @bshaddix shared video footage of the Tesla Semi’s debut at the Christmas Parade and stressed that it was important to improve the air in their community.

In response to a comment about a diesel semi truck pulling the parade scenery and resulting engine noise and exhaust, @bshaddix pointed out that there was so much smoke throughout the rest of the parade. “You described everything else in the parade. So. Many. Fumes.

@bshaddix said Teslarati they read in the paper about the delivery and noted how good it would be for improving the air in the valley.

“I have my office on the parade route, so I’m there at almost every parade. When Frito-Lay’s diesel first arrived, I told my wife about the new Tesla Semi, and she said look, it’s right there, the next truck.

“And I froze when I saw him. There he was, in our little town, ready to go. And with the rain and the lights. I grabbed my camera and walked down the street.

He added that it was the only video he was able to get and that he forgot to take a picture of Santa, but was amazed at how quiet it was.

“When I walked up to film it, it was so… quiet. And the way the lights were in the cabin and how it was already painted for Frito-Lay. Just wow. similar things. In my opinion, this was the highlight of this year’s parade. Sorry, Santa. Maybe they’ll bring it out for the 4th of July.

As a tech-impressed attorney living in a small town in Central Valley, @bshaddix said it was “really cool” to see some of the first Tesla Semi deliveries.
