Manufacturing on Tesla’s Cybertruck, the automaker’s first electrical pickup truck, has been delayed till 2022 based on its order web page on the corporate’s web site. First reported by Electrek, beneath the “due in the present day” part of the Cybertruck’s order web page it now reads “it is possible for you to to finish your configuration as manufacturing nears in 2022.” This seems to use to the single- dual- and tri-motor variations of the car.
The delay isn’t an enormous shock to those that have been following Cybertruck information carefully. When Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled it in 2019, the plan referred to as for the primary Cybertrucks to roll off the meeting line in late 2021. In January throughout Tesla’s fourth-quarter earnings call, Musk stated there could be a “few deliveries of the Cybertruck towards the top of this 12 months, however I count on quantity manufacturing to be in 2022.”
Final month throughout its second-quarter earnings call, Tesla’s VP of auto engineering Lars Moravy stated the Cybertruck was “at a stage the place we completed fundamental engineering of the structure of the car,” including that it was “shifting into the beta phases of Cybertruck later this 12 months.” So it appeared unlikely at that time that Cybertrucks could be delivery in 2021. Now, Tesla’s order web page has confirmed it.
