All right guys.

I got the Tesla Semi mod working for 1.38.x!

Essentially you have 4 .SCS files and 1 .ZIP file in the mod package.
All 5 files have to be copied in the Mod Folder.

Start the game in normal mode. Opel GL mode does not work now.

Then You have to go ensure you have a Garage of your own and then go to Peterbilt dealer and customize the Tesla Semi and purchase it.
While customizing in the Truck Configurator, you will get some lags. Just give it some time.

Once you buy it, you will find your brand new Tesla Electric Semi waiting for you in your Garage!

I did a test freight job to see if it really worked.
Took a freight job from San Diego to Tucumcari, NM. A 950+ mile ride!
And the truck performed brilliantly and i got back to my Garage.

Certain aspects of the electric truck absolutely blew my mind
a) Instant Torque. It just takes off. You will leave all the Diesel trucks behind.
b) You need to be careful in cities where there is lot of traffic. You need to be gentle, as any misteps will result it just zooming forward resulting in a crash.
c) In Highways it performs like a dream! You will reach 35 mph to 75 mph in no time!
d) Quiet drive inside the cabin. Such a welcome change from the headache inducing engine noise of Diesel trucks.

I felt like this is a vehicle dropped by an alien civilization. Its unlike anything else!

Lets see how long it works. I'm ready to accept that this is a mod and might fail on me anytime SCS release a patch.
But now that i have driven an electric, going back to Diesel would be tough!

Some pics.
Yes i have a 100 km yellow electric car in real life. So this is my preferred Tesla Semi color :)

Here is my Mod Order. Hope this helps.
I have been using the Tesla for 3-4 weeks with no issues.

Thanks, I did get it to work...placed all the files at bottom of mod manager but it doesn't play well with JBX graphics...gave me black sky. So drove it a bit on local deliveries and it"s crazy fast and hard to trailer park but heck of a lot of fun, loved passing all the AI traffic on the highway. I recommend it...

Electric Trucks are addictive!

So... Is there still a chance to see it being worked on rather than a workaround?

Lets hope the mod author works on it and refines it to support the latest version. But looks like he has abandoned the project.
I have been using it for the past month and hope it keeps working!

I really wish SCS and Tesla would work out an official deal for this truck so that we didn't have to worry about using mods like this. I think it'd be a great message to see SCS supporting electric semis in this game given where things are headed in the real world.

Question for you, KamyFC: does the mod truck have the centered steering column like the truck in real life? This is one aspect of the Tesla semi that's appealed to me.

Yes @IndigoAK , when u sit in the Tesla Semi, you sit in the center position.
And there are two touchscreen displays which has display of the side camera 'mirrors' ensuring u have no blind spots. I never use the real mirrors anymore.

The front glass is incredible. You have such a large field of view unlike any other truck.

A sample video of going at high speeds!
