Blog platform engadget has run an interesting post from a truck driver on the recently unveiled Tesla Semi – beginning with its strange cab design that puts the driver’s seat in the centre. “The central seating position hampers my commanding view when I need that view most: when I back up. For any backing manoeuver, I watch both sides of the trailer in my mirrors to make sure I don’t clobber anything, or I lean out of the truck to watch the trailer as I back. Being able to physically watch the trailer – not camera images on screens – can be the difference between making a clean back-up or making an insurance claim.”
