The Tesla Cybertruck Goes on Sale Next Year

Tesla won’t be the first to market with an electric truck meaning the pressure’s off


  • The confirmation comes from Elon Musk.

  • The Cybertruck was initially expected to launch this year.

  • 2023 will also introduce a wave of new products.


Or is it? For a short while, Tesla looked to be the first and only electric truck to hit the road, but various production delays have relegated the Cybertruck to the fourth or fifth position. That is if Musk’s words ring true and the Cybertruck actually arrives in 2023.

The Tesla Cybertruck has been Reserved by About 1.3 Million People

Tesla’s CEO has made a habit of making promises without ever delivering on them. But even so, his and his brand’s followers are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the still novel and unique-looking Cybertruck.

Musk made the announcement at a “Cyber Rodeo” at Tesla’s new factory in Austin, Texas. “We can’t wait to build this here,” Mr. Musk, wearing a black cowboy hat, said of the truck as reported by The New York Times(subscription required). “Sorry for the delay. But you’re going to have this next year, and it’s really going to be great.”

It will have to be great as automakers like Rivian, Ford, GM, and Ram have launched or soon will their own electric trucks. It is possible that Tesla Cybertruck hand-raisers may not be interested in all-out capability, but they will surely expect performance and range.

At the event, Musk also said that next year, Tesla will launch a “massive wave of new products.” Two of these should be the Roadster and the semi-truck.
