Tesla will not have time to release an electric Cybertruck pickup truck until 2022. This is reported by the publication Electrek.
According to a source familiar with the situation, Tesla reluctantly admitted that the Cybertruck electric pickup would not be able to be released on time. Now the head of the company, Elon Musk, said that the start of mass production of the pickup truck is postponed until 2023. At the same time, in early August, Tesla, for the first time, admitted the fact of the breakdown and announced that the production of an electric car was postponed until 2022.
Musk told his employees that the delay was again due to the difficult situation in the semiconductor market. In addition, Tesla has faced some difficulties at launch due to some features of Cybertruck. In particular, the car has a steel exoskeleton body, which requires completely new production processes.
In a conversation with employees, the head of Tesla noted that there are so many new technologies in an electric pickup truck, and it will be very difficult to increase production. “This will be a special project. Like a glitch in the “Matrix.” As if Neo had a car,” Elon Musk described Cybertruck.
In early September, it became known that the release of the fastest Tesla electric car will not take place on time. Answering questions from Twitter users, Musk said that the Tesla Roadster would not be available until 2023.
