Tesla Quietly Delays the Release of the Cybertruck

Elon Musk even alluded to a 2021 target date being unrealistic.

For those who pre-ordered, this definitely doesn’t come as good news, but the Cybertruck release will in fact be delayed until 2022

In a new report, Electrek reported that Elon Musk‘s electric vehicle company Tesla pushed back the release date of its highly anticipated all electric pickup until 2022. This came to light on the company’s configuration page for the Cybertruck. If you’re one of those interested in this futuristic pickup. You’ll notice during the configuration portion you’ll be met with a small message stating that “production nears in 2022.” Originally, Tesla already stated that the single-motor trucks are expected to arrive later, but this now applies to its dual- and tri-motor machines.

Earlier this year in a quarterly earnings call, Musk stated the company would make a “few deliveries of the Cybertruck in 2021,” however, the bulk of the production will be for 2022. Previously, Musk did allude to Tesla going through challenges to bring the Cybertruck to production due to its steel exoskeleton body feature that would require a completely new manufacturing process.

Tesla only recently finished its engineering design for the Cybertruck. While GMC’s Hummer EV and Ford’s F-150 Lightning have both garnered much attention and are already on roads. Thus causing Tesla and its Cybertruck to lose some of its competitive advantage by delaying until 2022.  While they may lose a little of the “first-mover’s” competitive advantage. We’re sure this truck will do well, regardless. Let us know what you think in the comments section below. Did you see this coming?
