Musk added that the upcoming vehicle will be "seriously next level." He also congratulated the entire team for doing an amazing job.

Last year, Musk said that Tesla Semi will reduce the cost of cargo transport and increase the safety. Other companies are also working on delivering a zero-emission cargo truck to the market. One of them is Mercedes-Benz, but their vehicle isn't expected to reach full production until 2020.

Musk didn't mention when Tesla Semi should enter production or when can we expect their first electric semi truck in the streets.

Musk also revealed that the company will unveil a pickup truck within 18 to 24 months.
