More Delays to be Expected for Tesla Cybertruck

The Cybertruck could still be a long ways away

 

  • Tesla’s website has been updated and Cybertruck prices and specs have now disappeared

  • Production could only start in 2023

  • Many modifications are required to make the truck legal and economically viable

Tesla is known for setting unrealistic goals for itself and then having to cancel or delay products.

After both the Tesla Semi and the Cybertruck were delayed until 2022, hints lead to believe the pickup will be delayed even further.

Since the Cybertruck was unveiled in 2019, the company’s website contained specification information that showed three trim levels and prices that ranged from $39,900 USD for a single motor RWD vehicle up to $69,900 USD for the tri-motor AWD range topper.

Initially, Tesla planned to begin sales at the end of 2021, but the company then announced it would be delaying introduction until late 2022.

What hints towards further delays is the fact that the webpage for the Cybertruck has been stripped of all information regarding trims, equipment or price.

This could also mean the finished product will be quite different from what was promised to the more than 1.25 million people who have already reserved one.

Another reason to believe the specs and price could change comes from a tweet from Elon Musk that said that if the company were to start mass production of the Cybertruck now, each unit would cost about $1 million USD.

In addition, many of the design features from the current Cybertruck are not legal for sale in North America, so significant changes, in particular to the lighting and bumper systems are to be expected before the final version reaches the public, which could still be a few years away.
