Tesla won't have time to release the Cybertruck electric pickup before 2022. This is reported by the Electrek edition.
According to a source familiar with the situation, Tesla was reluctant to admit that the Cybertruck electric pickup would not be able to be released on time. Now the head of the company, Elon Musk, said that the start of mass production of a pickup truck is postponed until 2023. At the same time, at the beginning of August, Tesla first recognized the failure and announced that the production of an electric car was postponed until 2022.
Musk told his staff that the delay was again due to a difficult situation in the semiconductor market. In addition, Tesla faced some launch challenges due to some of the Cybertrack features. In particular, the car has a steel exoskeleton body that requires completely new manufacturing processes.
In a conversation with employees, the head of Tesla noted that there are so many new technologies in the electric pickup and it will be very difficult to ramp up production. “This will be a special project. Like a glitch in the Matrix. As if Neo had a car, ”Elon Musk described Cybertrack.
In early September, it became known that the release of the fastest Tesla electric car would not take place on time. Responding to questions from Twitter users, Musk said the Tesla Roadster will not be available until 2023.
