(Pocket-lint) – Looks like you’ll be able to drive a Tesla Cybertruck by the middle of next year, according to the Tesla CEO himself.
In a recent call with investors, Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed that his electric vehicle company plans to begin deliveries of the Cybertruck, a battery-powered pickup truck, “in the middle of next year.”
This is the most accurate delivery window Musk has ever revealed for the Cybertruck. During last quarter’s earnings call, Musk said the truck would arrive “hopefully next year.” Tesla first announced the truck in 2019 and plans to begin production in late 2021. The company eventually announced a delay to 2022, and Musk later said on a conference call about Tesla’s fourth-quarter earnings that Cyberyrunk would hopefully come out next year.
Don’t forget that competitors are also accelerating their electric truck plans, with Ford aiming to build 150,000 F-150 Lightning trucks in 2023.
Cybertruck is delayed not only because of the pandemic. The company reportedly struggled with the car’s angular design.
Musk did not elaborate on what Tesla needs to do to get the Cybertruck ready. But anyone following the company will notice that it has had production issues in recent months with all of its S, X, 3 and Y models.
