If the device rack is an actual choice, it is possible we’ll hear one thing within the coming months if the Cybertruck goes to make its Q3 2023 development schedule. There may be nonetheless a query mark over that date, as manufacturing has been knocked again a number of occasions already. Even in a best-case state of affairs, the place Tesla truly sticks to the schedule, we’re unlikely to see many Cybertrucks on the street in 2023. Throughout an earnings name earlier this yr, Musk stated manufacturing would technically start later this summer time on the earliest, however it will take some time to scale issues up. Precise mass manufacturing is not more likely to occur earlier than 2024.
The truck was first unveiled, and pre-orders taken, again in 2021 with manufacturing scheduled for 2022. A number of elements, together with a semiconductor scarcity and the worldwide pandemic, ended up making that schedule unrealistic. Consequently, 2021 grew to become late 2022, then early 2023. We’re now crossing our fingers for some progress this summer time and, hopefully, large-scale manufacturing changing into practical by subsequent yr. However do not be too shocked if we’re speaking a few additional delay, and never how a lot it prices so as to add a device rack, at this level subsequent yr.
