Tesla's Cybertruck delayed again

Only a few samples are expected to be produced by the end of 2023.

It will be more than four years since Tesla originally announced its new, futuristic pickup truck, the Cybertruck. When Elon Musk unveiled the first prototype of the Cybertruck in November 2019, he stated that it will be on the road by 2020 or 2021 - however, there were multiple delays owing to the pandemic, the crisis, and Tesla's concentration on others, more critical and ancestors, models, and jobs.

Mass production in 2024

Musk mentioned plans for the Cybertruck during the announcement of Tesla's current financial performance and record car deliveries last year.

The corporation is currently constructing a production line for it at its plant in Austin (the federal state of Texas), and assembly of the first copies is expected to commence by the end of this year.

This indicates that throughout 2023, just a few buyers are likely to receive their long-ordered copies, and that mass serial production should begin in 2024.

The truck has undergone various small adjustments since its launch, but it remains a futuristic vehicle with superb qualities, as though from a science fiction picture.

The base model, with one electric motor, should have a range of roughly 400 kilometers, while the top model, with three motors, should have twice as many kilometers.

The truck's carrying capacity will be roughly 1,500 kg, and it will be able to tow a trailer weighing up to 6,350 kg. With all of the gears and a vehicle weight of around 3 tons, the Cybertruck's most powerful version should be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 2.9 seconds.

The standard model with one engine is expected to cost $39,900. The model with two engines will cost 49,900 dollars, while the most modern and powerful model with three engines will cost 69,900 dollars (all in the USA).

Pre-orders and deposits are still being accepted by Tesla, although prices and final configurations are still subject to change.
