Will Tesla’s long-awaited all-electric pickup, the Cybertruk, hit the roads soon? According to PhonAndroid, Thursday July 21, the first vehicles should be delivered during the summer of 2023. Elon Musk, the boss of Tesla, would have assured investors that “the company finally plans to deliver the first Cybertrucks by the middle of the year. next”. First announced in 2021, then postponed to 2022, the arrival of the famous vehicle was finally postponed for an additional year.
For the very first time, Elon Musk therefore indicates a precise timetable with deliveries which would arrive as early as next summer. Besides the pandemic, the Cybertruck’s extravagant angular design would also have complicated its design. The electric pick-up was notably too high for tunnels, too wide for car parks and garages or even too big for European streets, specify our colleagues.

A great success even before its production
According to The Verge, in the document presenting Tesla’s latest results, the Cybertruck is barely mentioned. The American company is content to explain: “We are making progress on the industrialization of the Cybertruck, whose production is planned in Austin, after the increase in that of the Model Y.”
However, from its launch and even before its production, the electric pick-up had met with great success, recording more than 250,000 orders in the week following its presentation. The Cybertruck had particularly attracted several police services around the world. Between June 2020 and November 2021, the number of reservations for the vehicle had thus fallen from 650,000 to 1,270,000. The vast majority of orders were for versions with two and three electric motors. On average, a model costs $58,000. In addition, its reservation requires a security deposit of only 100 dollars.
