After years of delays, the Tesla Cybertruck is finally nearing production. The manufacturer announced on July 15 that the first Cybertruck had been built at its Giga Texas facility. This is a significant milestone, but it’s important to note that full-volume production is not expected until 2024.
What Caused the Delays?
There have been several factors that have contributed to the delays in Cybertruck production. One factor is the ongoing chip shortage, which has affected the production of many vehicles. Another factor is the complexity of the Cybertruck’s design. The Cybertruck’s unique body style requires new manufacturing techniques, which Tesla is still developing.
Despite the delays, Tesla is still committed to producing the Cybertruck. The company has taken several steps to ensure that production goes smoothly, including building a new factory in Austin, Texas, specifically for the Cybertruck.
In the meantime, Tesla is continuing to test the Cybertruck. The company has been spotted testing prototypes on public roads, and it has also begun delivering pre-production models to some customers.
While the Cybertruck’s production has been delayed, it’s clear that Tesla is making progress. The company is confident that it will be able to start full-volume production in 2024.
Pricing Expected to Change
When the Cybertruck was first announced, Tesla said that it would start at $39,900 for the base model. However, the starting price will likely be higher than that when the truck goes into production. This is because the cost of materials and manufacturing has increased since the Cybertruck was first announced.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has hinted that the Cybertruck’s starting price could be closer to $50,000. He has also said that the truck’s range could be lower than originally planned.
It’s still too early to say for sure what the final price of the Cybertruck will be. However, the truck will be more expensive than originally planned.
The Tesla Cybertruck is finally nearing production, but it’s not clear when the truck will be available to the general public. Full-volume production is not expected until 2024, and the starting price could be higher than originally planned. However, Tesla is confident that the Cybertruck will be a successful vehicle.
