When Tesla unveiled the Cybertruck back in 2019, Tesla said that the electric pickup truck would make it to market by the end of 2021.
Over the last year, with the timeline coming closer, there have been signs that the Cybertruck could be delayed.
First off, Tesla only recently completed the engineering design of the electric pickup truck.
CEO Elon Musk also warned that Tesla is going to have some challenges in bringing the Cybertruck to production due to features, like the steel exoskeleton body that requires completely new manufacturing processes. There are also concerns that the car might not be street legal.
Despite those concerns and the “end of 2021” timeline coming closer, Tesla appeared reticent in confirming that Cybertruck production has been delayed. A few weeks ago we reported that Tesla did a potential deal with Samsung. This might turn out to be delayed as well the
On the order page, Tesla updated the footnotes to confirm that the configurator will be available when “production nears in 2022”:
The note is the same for all three variants of the Cybertruck despite Tesla previously saying that the two higher-end variants, Dual Motor and Tri-Motor, will come first.
While the Tesla Cybertruck delay was somehow expected it will disappoint many as Tesla has reportedly accumulated over 1 million reservations for the Cybertruck.
