Tesla is about to reveal its first electric big-rig - here's what to look for
- Tesla's big rig will likely redefine the large tractor-trailer for the future.
- Expect a futuristic prototype, complete with a spaceship-like cab and a huge battery.
- Ironically, the freight business might be a better fit for Tesla's technologies that the mass-market for passengers cars.

Here's what we expect to see next week:
