Tesla forgot the disguise tarp...

...on their futuristic E-semi truck. It has the Tesla grill-less face, sleek lines and wheels bulges, very aerodynamically sculpted. There is probably a deploy-able top wind deflector and side mirror-less, depending on 360 degree camera views. The all-EV semi depends on smooth aerodynamics to improve the overall range, expected to have 200-300 mile ranges per charge.
