Production of the Tesla Cybertruck will begin in the first quarter of 2023, said people familiar with the matter. Reuters.
The source claimed that Tesla is changing the features and functions of the Cybertruck to make it more compelling like other all-electric pickups, such as the Rivian R1T and Ford F-150 Lightning, which join the segment. Tesla Cybertruck production in the first quarter of 2023 will reportedly be limited before production increases.
Elon Musk is expected to provide a product roadmap to shareholders during the Q4 2021[ads1] earnings call. His product update will provide a clear and official time frame for Cybertruck production. Tesla will hold the next earnings talk on Wednesday, January 26 at 4:30 p.m. (5:30 p.m.).
Before the end of 2021, Tesla removed references to the Cybertruck’s production date for 2022. Earlier, the Cybertruck order page stated that customers could “complete (your) configuration as production approaches 2022.” When the new year began, Tesla removed “in 2022” from the order side. During his interview at Wall Street JournalAt the CEO’s summit last month, Elon Musk also mentioned that volume production of the Cybertrucken would start around 2023.
“The cyber truck is going to be an incredible product. I think it may be our best product ever. I think it will be. It has a lot of new technology, so it is difficult to make. I bet it’s going to be great. I think I have said it before, but we are aiming for volume production in 2023. I will provide more detailed product updates on the Tesla earnings call early next year. I wish it could have been earlier, but it’s most likely when it happens. It will be something very special, like one of the rare products that happens once in a while, and it is very special, said the CEO.
In its update letter for the second quarter of 2021, Tesla reported that they were making progress with the industrialization of the Cybertruck. At the time, the company stated that the cyber truck was in its alpha stages. Tesla plans to enter the beta phases of the Cybertruck by the end of 2021. Observations of an alpha Cybertruck with updated parts were reported later in the year.
At the moment, Tesla seems focused on Model Y production in Giga Texas and Giga Berlin. Tesla’s new Gigafactorys is expected to start production this year, pending approval from local authorities. Tesla Giga Texas will produce the Cybertruck after scaling the Model Y production.
