Tesla’s long-awaited Cybertruck is scheduled to make its way to customers in the third quarter of 2023.
That’s according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who spoke about the car at a Tesla investor call on Wednesday. Musk says Tesla will “probably” have a third-quarter cybertruck “delivery event” this year.
Are the Tesla Model 3 Redesign photos real or fake? What we know (and don’t know).
Originally announced in November 2019, the Tesla Cybertruck was scheduled to go into production in 2021, but has been delayed multiple times since then.
However, there is still a caveat; While Cybertruck production begins this summer, full-scale production won’t begin until 2024, so it’s likely only a select few will get their flashy new stainless steel truck.
“As with all new products, it will follow an S-curve; production starts slow and then accelerates,” Musk said.
Musk did not share any new details about the cybertruck during the call.
“It’s an amazing product, a hall of fame I think, and a product like this comes along every once in a while. You won’t be disappointed at all, it’s amazing,” Musk said.
Musk said one reason Cybertruck is being delayed is that it’s a “radical product” that’s “not made the way other cars are made.” We’ve already seen a problem stemming from Cybertruck’s extravagant design, where Tesla struggled to design a wiper that can cover the car’s huge windshield.
