Musk Says Tesla Wants To Complete Cybertruck Development This Year, Begin Building It in 2023
Tesla’s Cybertruck situation is one that continues to be fluid and while the company had originally planned to have its truck available to buy before the end of last year, we’re now looking towards 2023 as the big release window.
Now, CEO Elon Musk has told people at the Berlin Gigafactory that the company intends to be able to mark development as complete by the end of this year.
The move would mean that Tesla would have all of the design complete before the end of 2022, with Musk then saying that the company would be able to begin production of the EV by 2023, meeting a goal that was set earlier this year.
“We want to complete the development of Cybertruck this year and be ready for production next year.”
Of course, Elon Musk saying something during a visit to one of the company’s factories and then Tesla actually delivering Cybertrucks are two different things and we’re a long way away from 2023 and those trucks entering production. As is always the case, we’ll have to wait and see how things pan out. However, those hanging on to hopes that they might be able to get into a Cybertruck in 2022 should now put those dreams to bed.
As for the Roadster, Musk is reported by Electrek as having said that the car should be in an engineering-complete state by the end of this year, too.
