After being repeatedly delayed, CEO Elon Musk has now said his electric vehicle company Tesla could begin deliveries of its next Cybertruck in mid-2023.
The tech billionaire also said that with Cybertruck and other products, the company will add a new level of production efficiency and simplicity.
“We’re going to bring another level of manufacturing simplicity and improvements with Cybertruck and future products that we’re not quite ready to talk about now, but which I think will be very exciting to unveil in the future. Musk told analysts on the quarter’s earnings conference call late Wednesday.
“In conclusion, we ended the second quarter with a production rate stronger than ever. Our team continues to focus on preparing for production of the Cybertruck and designing some future platforms. We expect to go into production with the Cybertruck in the middle of next year,” he added.
Recently, Musk said he thinks the next Cybertruck will be the company’s “greatest product ever.”
At the same time, Tesla is likely considering raising the price of its “full self-driving” (FSD) beta software.
Currently, Tesla cars come standard with its driver assistance system called Autopilot. For an additional $12,000, Tesla car owners can purchase the FSD.
Regarding Autopilot, we have now rolled out our beta version of FSD with City Streets driving capability to over 100,000 owners. They are very happy with the capacity of the system and we will continue to improve it every week. We have now traveled over 35 million miles with the FSD beta,” Musk said.
