Will the long-awaited all-electric Tesla Cybertruk pickup truck hit the roads soon? According to PhonAndroid on Thursday, July 21, the first cars should be delivered in the summer of 2023. Elon Musk, the head of Tesla, assured investors that “the company is finally planning to deliver the first Cybertrucks by the middle of the year. First announced in 2021, then pushed back to 2022, the iconic car’s arrival has finally been delayed by another year.
Thus, Elon Musk for the first time indicates the exact schedule of deliveries that will arrive next summer. Aside from the pandemic, the extravagant, angular design of the Cybertruck would also complicate its construction. The electric pickup was too tall for tunnels, too wide for car parks and garages, or even too big for European streets, our colleagues say.
Cybertruck from Tesla is clearly difficult to manage even by Elon Musk
Great success even before its production
According to The Verge, the paper presenting Tesla’s latest results barely mentions the Cybertruck. The American company is content with the explanation: “We are making progress in the industrialization of the Cybertruck, which is planned for production in Austin, after increasing the production of the Model Y.”
However, from the moment of launch and even before the start of production, the electric pickup was a great success: in the week after its presentation, more than 250,000 orders were placed. The Cybertruck has especially won over several police departments around the world. Thus, between June 2020 and November 2021, the number of booked vehicles decreased from 650,000 to 1,270,000. The vast majority of orders were for versions with two and three electric motors. On average, the model costs $58,000. In addition, a deposit of only $100 is required to book it.
