(Pocket-lint) – It looks like you might be able to drive a Tesla Cybertruck by the middle of next year, according to the Tesla chief himself.
In a recent investor call, Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed that his electric car company plans to start delivering the Cybertruck, its battery-powered pickup truck, “in the middle of next year.”
This is the most accurate delivery window Musk has ever revealed for the Cybertruck. During last quarter’s earnings call, Musk said the truck would arrive “hopefully next year.” Tesla first announced the truck in 2019, with plans to start production in late 2021. The company eventually announced a delay until 2022, and Musk later said on the earnings conference call from Tesla’s fourth quarter that the Cyberyrunk would hopefully release next year.
Don’t forget that competitors are also accelerating their electric truck plans, with Ford on track to make 150,000 F-150 Lightning trucks in 2023.
It’s not just because of the pandemic that Cybertruck has been delayed. According to reports, the company had difficulties with the design angular of the vehicle.
Musk didn’t specify what Tesla needs to do to get the Cybertruck ready. But anyone who follows the company will notice that it has had production issues with all of its models – the S, X, 3 and Y – in recent months.
