Tesla Reaches Out To Cybertruck Buyers With Late 2021 Production Start Update

With competition dialed up, Tesla confirms that the Cybertruck is coming soon


  • Tesla might be feeling pressure from Ford, GM, and Rivian.

  • Up to now, many thought the Cybertruck might be delayed.


Talk of the Tesla Cybertruck goes back more than 18 months but contrary to the EV company’s habits, little has been mentioned recently. As competition flares up, Tesla has reached out to confirm that production of the Cybertruck will begin in late 2021.

The last few months have been peppered with updates from Rivian and their R1T pickup. Ford also shared occasional updates on their electric F-150, which was finally fully revealed only yesterday. For some, it seemed as though Musk was avoiding the subject of the Cybertruck but an official email has put delay rumours to rest as reported by Insideevs.

Tesla’s focus has been on the hot-selling Model Y and getting its future Gigafactory in Austin, Texas, up and running. This plant will build the Model Y by the end of the year, right along the Cybertruck. Both are expected to use the all-new 4680 cells from the very start of production.

Assuming all goes to plan, the new Tesla Cybertruck should hit the road by early 2022, about six or seven months after the Rivian R1T but possibly just ahead of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning and GMC Hummer EV.
