Tesla’s Cybertruck delayed until late 2022, Elon Musk confirms

(Mashable) — At this rate, seeing a Cybertruck on the streets may be the stuff of legend.

On a company call with Tesla employees, Elon Musk confirmed that the Cybertruck isn’t expected to go into production until late 2022, and volume production may not ramp up until late 2023, according to Electrek.

This latest timeline update comes after the Tesla website quietly changed its fine print to indicate that the Cybertruck would be coming in 2022, rather than late 2021 as previously promised. The delay wasn’t entirely surprising, as Musk had tweeted about the manufacturing and supply chain issues that had plagued the company, most likely pandemic related.

While not unexpected, the “late” part of “late 2022” is disappointing to the more than 1.25 million customers who pre-ordered the Cybertruck by Aug. 2021.

While the extra year should be enough to finally deliver on the Cybertruck promise, perhaps Tesla buyers shouldn’t hold their breath. The Cybertruck is expected to be built at the Gigafactory Texas, Tesla’s new factory in Austin. The only problem? The Gigafactory is still under construction itself.

It might be a tad difficult to get the Cybertruck into consumers’ hands if the very industrial unit that makes it needs to finish being made first. Click here to read the source article delayed Original Article By: Jennimai Nguyen

  1. That is bad that they had bad manufacturing but surely for 2022 they are already super ready because that way more time passes and they have more time to fix it.

  2. It’s terrible that they aren’t able to stay on time with the manufacturing but in 2022 I’m sure they would do great.

  3. The delay will affect suppliers by causing them to have to wait even longer to make a profit or even break even on things they probably pre-ordered a while ago. Additionally, I think that the delay is pandemic related, because of lack of workers and lack of workers in other industries causing supply chain issues, but it is also non-pandemic related because the cars need semiconductorchips, which are currently in short supply.

  4. I think the delay is good and bad at the same time. It can be good because it gives the company more time to fix any errors they have and to be sure everything is ok and in there place. However some people might not like the idea because they may have pre-ordered it and they may not want to wait a whole other year to get the cyber truck.
