There is better. so far Elon Musk half hoped that the cybertruck could be marketed next year, but during the last conference call with investors, the boss of Tesla was a little more specific this time, proof that things are progressing well on the production side. Elon Musk therefore expressed the wish that the deliveries start “halfway through next year”. We are still moving away from the initial schedule – the delivery of Cybertruck was to start at the end of 2021 – but the very specific circumstances (pandemic, shortage of components, war in Ukraine) largely explain these small problems at start-up.
This latency time also allowed the competition to get in working order. Thus, Ford and Rivian have recently announced their own electric pickup model. Ford hopes to be able to produce 150,000 F-150 Lightnings in 2023. For Tesla, it’s a bit of a return to the same, and the Cybertruck is generally experiencing the same production errors as the firm’s other models. Elon Musk recognized it easily during the conf-call: “Tesla doesn’t have a demand problem, we have a production problem”.
