On November 21, 2019, Elon Musk announced in a chaotic presentation the Cybertruck, a futuristic electric car that has since caused a lot of talk, but which has still not been allowed to enter production. Since 2019 everyone has announced a release date for the Cybertruck, started by Elon Musk himself.
If no date has yet caught the public’s attention, Elon Musk’s latest twitter post should let us know more about Tesla’s schedule for its new model. Indeed the electric pick-up should be delivered in the “middle of next year” according to the own words of the boss of the brand.
The Cybertruck marketed in 2023?
If we know that Elon Musk is not the most comfortable person with deadlines, sometimes exceeding them by far, this date of 2023 seems quite solid. Indeed, Tesla has already announced in the past that the design of the Cybertruck has been “locked down” and that the entry of mass production should not be delayed any longer.
This news is also consistent with Musk’s initial comments on the subject during the latest investor call last quarter. At the time the billionaire had announced “hope for an arrival next year”. If all these dates are a long way from the announcement, made in 2019, the Cybertruck was at the heart of all the discussions.
Tesla’s last communication on the Cybertruck was made in August 2021. At that time the brand had explained that production had been delayed and that the latter could not start until 2022, at best. But last January this date was postponed again, Elon Musk hoped that the release of this futuristic pickup will be in 2023.
If the design of the Cybertruck has long been the central point of the debate, the latter seems to have finally been validated, in a design quite close to the ultra-futuristic version that Elon Musk presented in 2019. According to the few rumors circulating around this project, Tesla had the greatest difficulty in making the car safe.
A very difficult car to develop
At the end of 2021, Elon Musk notably pointed out that the pickup’s windshield wiper was a problem. In the latest versions of the Cybertruck that have been seen, it is a single arm, which would make it more specific for the Cybertruck.
For the past few months, videos about the Cybertruck have been increasingly present on the various social networks. Several leaks have shown rolling models, especially on airport runways, which shows that the Cybertruck project is nearing the end.
