Those who dream of Tesla Cybertruck will not be happy with the planned changes

Production of Cybertruck was initially promised to begin in 2021. It was later postponed to 2022. The year 2022 has now begun and the start of production of a large electric pickup truck has been postponed to 2023. Perhaps the fact that production is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2023 may provide some consolation.

The Tesla pickup is actually waiting even longer. Elonas Muskas spoke about the desire to produce an electric pickup truck for the first time in 2012. He repeated this in 2013 as well. In 2014, Muskas said work on the new electric car could begin in 4-5 years. And it started – in the fall of 2019, Cybertruck saw the world, and the world saw Cybertruck. The quirky-looking stainless steel-coated Cybertruck has many impressive features – the most expensive three-engine version at 100 km / h. will reach in just over 3 seconds, 800 km between loads and will be able to tow 6.4 tons of cargo.

Cybertruck was initially delayed because Tesla had to focus on more profitable products. Such as the Model 3 and Model Y. In addition, battery production and a new standard are being developed. Finally, Elonas Muskas states that Cybertruck will be manufactured using new production technologies. Much of it will be cast. In addition, stainless steel is very rarely used to make bodies, so solutions are needed to process it.

Now, according to sources, Cybertruck is being postponed for another reason: competition. Ford is already offering the F-150 Lightning, the Rivian R1T has hit the market, and General Motors is preparing the Silverado power plant. Cybertruck has good cards against them, but is a bit outdated, so it needs to be upgraded before production.

So Cybertruck won’t show up without 2023. Tesla can be pleased to be able to use the more than $ 100 million “loan” granted to it by Cybertruck fans. It will have to be returned in one form or another, but there is a growing rumor that Tesla will no longer produce any of these models – the Semi tractor, the Roadster supercar or the Cybertruck.
