The head of the Tesla brand, Elon Musk, said that the debut of the serial Cybertruck electric pickup and the launch of its production are postponed again, notes the Electrek edition. The premiere of the release-ready version of the model will take place only in 2022, and the assembly will start no earlier than 2023.
The delay in the production of the Tesla Cybertruck pickup, announced back in 2019, is due to the abundance of technologies that are not so easy to introduce into mass production. Tesla CEO Elon Musk recalled that “this will be a special project. Like a glitch in the matrix. A car that Neo could drive.
Tesla’s financial statements for the second quarter of this year indicate that Cybertruck will enter the assembly line after the assembly of the Model Y electric car begins at the Gigafactory in Austin, Texas. Most likely, this is an attempt to establish a test assembly car.
According to preliminary data, the Gigafactory Austin enterprise will be able to reach full capacity only by 2023. Thus, thousands of people who pre-ordered will have to wait for their Tesla Cybertrucks for at least another 2 years. The design of the production version of the pickup and its dimensions were approved in mid-August this year. But the public demonstration of the model’s stylistics has not yet taken place.
