Tesla has confirmed rumors of a delayed start-up of the Cybertruck electric truck, revealing that the expected truck will not leave production lines until next year. Following a recent update, Tesla Cybertruck’s order page now reads, “You can complete your assembly as production approaches in 2022.”
However, the delay is not entirely surprising, as Cyberstuck’s production is already behind schedule. When Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk unveiled Cybertruck in 2019, it was supposed to be on the assembly line in the second half of 2021. would take place at the end of this year. However, he said he expects mass production to start only in 2022.
For starters, Cybertruck is one of Tesla’s most ambitious projects to date. Introducing the Musk, the truck was built on an almost impermeable exoskeleton exterior thanks to its ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel skin and Tesla’s armored glass (which shattered when revealing what sparked the filling of memes), autopilot functions and much more.
The Cybertruck range starts with a single engine, a rear-wheel drive model that offers more than 400 km of range on a single charge. A twin-engine four-wheel-drive version with a range of more than 480 km is available, and the range-topper is a four-wheel-drive three-engine model with a range of more than 800 km. In terms of performance, the claimed speed of the entry-level version from 0 to 96 km / h is less than 6.5 seconds; the three-engine version performs the run within 2.9 seconds (alleged).
At the truck launch event, Cybertruck was reported to be listed at a derivative price of $ 39,900 before the incentives, and the twin-engine AWD and three-engine AWD options were $ 49,900 and $ 69,900, respectively. However, in another statement, Musk said the truck could “literally cost a million dollars a piece” because the company couldn’t build enough of its 4680 battery cells.
