Tesla’s Cybertruck Among The Most American-Made Of All
Tesla has been working to try and reduce its reliance on third-party providers so as to allow it more control over components, where they come from, and how much they cost. It’s a process that has been ongoing for years and it’s also one that will be immediately familiar to fans of Apple — a company that continues to bring as many of its devices’ key components under its wing.
Now, a new report notes that the Cybertruck might be among the most American-made trucks on the market.
That’s based on information gleaned from the window sticker of a Cybertruck that was posted to YouTube. The sticker, otherwise known as the Monroney sticker, features all kinds of interesting information relating to the vehicle itself and one of these stickers has to come with each new car sold in the United States. In this instance, it gives us a good look at what goes into making a Cybertruck, too.
The Cybertruck is built in such a way that 65% of its parts come from the US or Canada, while Mexico is the source of 35% of them. The window sticker also confirms that the motor assembly and gearbox/transmission are also assembled in the United States with the final assembly taking place in Austin, Texas.
While the report says that the Honda Ridgeline’s window sticker claims an extra 10% of its parts are made in the US or Canada, Tesla’s Cybertruck is sure to be near the top of the pile regardless.
