Tesla is Feeling Demand Pressure as it Will Only Take Orders for the Cybertruck from North America

Tesla’s putting the brakes on orders for all models including the anticipated Cybertruck

  • Once well ahead of the demand curve, Tesla’s now forced to push back deliveries for its models.

  • As of now, Tesla has more than three years’ worth of orders for the Cybertruck.

If you’ve been shopping for a new EV over the last little while, you know that delivery delays for all of them exceed 12 months. Up until recently, Tesla was immune to the inability to supply the demand but now, they too are feeling the crunch. As a consequence, they will no longer take orders for the Cybertruck outside North America.

The Tesla Cybertruck was revealed way back in November 2019. Hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of orders came pouring in shortly thereafter. A number of delays have pushed production back to early 2023 but even if Cybertrucks will be rolling off the assembly line in less than a year, it’s essentially sold out.

Elon Musk said, as reported by Automotive News: “We have more orders of the first Cybertrucks than we could possibly fulfill for three years after the start of production,” In fact, it’s been rumoured that Tesla may put a hold on orders for most of its models soon.

If you’re shopping for a Tesla, you’ll have probably noticed that delivery delays have gone from 4-6 weeks to 6 months or more.
