Tesla will begin mass production of its all-electric truck, Cybertruck, in late 2023, according to a recent Reuters report. Officially unveiled in 2019, this is now the fourth time the Tesla Cybertruck has faced production delays.

Although initially targeted for late 2021 production, production dates were later pushed back to late 2022, early 2023 and now, late 2023.

Last month, Tesla announced that work had already begun on its new factory in Texas – which will be the site where the Cybertruck will go into mass production. The first stage of production is expected to begin in mid-2023, with Musk saying in a recent financial report that the company is in “Cybertruck’s final round”.

Since the initial reveal, thousands of potential buyers have already paid $100 each to reserve the Cybertruck. However, Tesla has yet to reveal a release date, final price, or confirmed specifications for the final version of the electric vehicle.

What is the Cybertruck?

Tesla’s Cybertruck is a future all-electric pickup truck designed to provide “better utility than a truck with more performance than a sports car,” according to Tesla. The truck will sport an ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel exterior and Tesla armored glass, with a polymer-layered composite that can absorb and redirect blunt force.

According to Tesla, the Cybertruck will have a payload capacity of 3,500 pounds, a towing capacity of more than 14,000 pounds, an enlarged storage vault and adjustable air suspension. Tesla’s official website also says the most expensive model of the Cybertruck will have a range of 500 miles and a 0-60mph acceleration of 2.9 seconds.

When it was revealed in 2019, Tesla predicted a sub-$40,000 price for the Cybertruck. But since then, vehicle prices, including those from Tesla, have risen. It is currently unconfirmed what the price of this electric truck will be when it is expected to be released in early 2024.
