Tesla Pickup Delayed to Next Year

Tesla pickup delayed

  • Tesla site says production will “near” in 2022

  • Truck originally shown in 2019


The Tesla pickup has been delayed once again. This time, it’s officially been pushed back to 2022, revealed in the fine print on the company’s order page for the pickup.

The first image of the Cybertruck was shown in early 2019, and in late 2019 the truck was first revealed. At the time, it was set to enter production this year. Strong hints of delays have come from CEO Elon Musk, who said in January that the company would have to be “lucky” to deliver any trucks by end of year.

As recently as the Tesla Q2 financial results conference just a few weeks ago, Tesla said that the truck would still be manufactured at the new Texas factory starting this year. That plant is not yet open, which puts production of the Model Y there (also supposed to start before the pickup) this year in doubt.

Currently on the order page for the truck, in all three powertrain variants, trying to make a reservation indicates the following: “You will be able to complete your configuration as production nears in 2022.” So production will definitely not start this year, and this makes it quite vague as to when it may start next year.

In an unusual step, CEO Elon Musk has not Tweeted about the delays to the truck, the usual way for Tesla to announce new information.
