Tesla Says We’ll have to Wait Until 2022 for the Cybertruck, At Least

The Cybertruck is a lot of things, including late

  • The company suggests to those who have pre-ordered to lease another vehicle


Those who ordered a Cybertruck received an email from Tesla suggesting that they lease another Tesla vehicle while waiting for their electric truck.

The news comes from Electrek. The email in question indicates that the first Cybertrucks will not be delivered until 2022, while production will start late next year. In addition, the single-motor versions will not be delivered until 2023.

Tesla is therefore proposing to lease another Tesla model to fill the gap. That said, a good portion of Cybertruck stakeholders already own Tesla.

Unveiled in Los Angeles last November, the Cybertruck has garnered a lot of attention due to its controversial styling and outstanding performance. Tesla has received over 650,000 pre-orders for the Cybertruck following the launch.

By pushing order holders to buy another Tesla model while waiting for their Cybertruck, the brand hopes to get closer to its goal of delivering 500,000 vehicles by 2020, which would allow it to reach the profitability threshold. The company is currently losing money on every model sold.

Tesla must sell 180,000 vehicles this quarter to reach its target, which means 40,000 more vehicles than in the third quarter. The latter was a sales record for the California automaker.
