An electric pickup helps to ease a stuck semi truck out of a roadside ditch on a soggy day in this clip. 

In the video filmed in Illinois, a bobtail semi truck appears to have just missed backing into a gravel driveway, and instead ended up in a roadside ditch in the rain – That’s when a motorist in a brand new Rivian electric pickup decides to put his new truck to the test. 

The electric pickup manages to tow the bobtail out of the steep ditch on a wet road without even putting in much effort. What an add for the Rivian pickup! Could the Tesla truck do that…?
