Does The Tesla Semi Have Air Brakes?
The documents revealed the Tesla Semi Electric trucks will come standard with dual-motor drivetrains, along with air brakes.
Even with two out of the four motors broken, the Tesla Semi will still function and will outrun the diesel truck for acceleration and range.
Its Class 8 electric truck requires no gearboxes or clutches to smoothly accelerate and
decelerate, and its regenerative brakes recapture 98% of the kinetic energy back

Electricity and energy are primarily focused straight on getting wheels moving, and
Tesla then uses its regenerative-power system to extend the driving range of
