Do you know that Jeremy Dodd, who designed the conceptual Tesla Autonomous E-Rig semi-truck, the ultra-futuristic all-electric truck scheduled for production in 2022 has roots in the Philippines? His mother, Maria Socorro Bagayna Dodd is from Jasaan, Misamis Oriental. Jeremy is based in England and is an industrial and transport designer.
Her mother is so proud of her son’s achievement as shown in her post below.
The Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) semi-truck is said to be the safest and most comfortable truck with an acceleration of 0-60 mph in just 20 seconds and a range of 300-500 miles. It maintains an all-electric design while a series of solar panels on the top portion would work to capture the sun’s energy during operation. The expandable design of the truck means it can adapt to the requirements of the job at hand and allow it to run autonomously or with a driver, depending on the scenario.
