Elon Musk is choking on his big pitches. We recently learned that the arrival of the Tesla Semi, the company’s long-awaited electric truck, was delayed until 2022. And now it’s the turn of the company. Tesla Cybertruck.
Yes, Elon Musk’s personal project, remember that he had wanted to launch an electric pick-up for years, has also suffered the ravages of production problems, so The electric motor giant has decided to postpone its official launch.
To say that all versions of the Tesla Cybertruck will be delayed until 2022, so regardless of the model you wanted to buy – single motor RWD, Dual Motor AWD and Tri Motor AWD – you will have to wait for next year
Confirmed: Tesla Cybertruck delayed to 2022
The truth is that it is news that many of us expected. Already at the time, Elon Musk reported that the first units of the Cybertruck could begin to be delivered in late 2021, but that the main production would begin in 2022.
As you can see in the configurator of this electric van, when choosing any model of the Cybertruck the following poster appears “the amount of the reservation is fully refundable. You will be able to complete the setup when production approaches production in 2022 ”. Clearer the water.
It is news in some way expected, since Elon Musk himself said a few months ago that, hopefully, they could deliver the first units of the Cybertruck by the end of the year. However, he announced that he expected the production volume to be in 2022.
While it is true that we do not know the exact reason why Tesla’s electric truck is suffering a new delay, there may be several reasons that have caused the launch to be postponed until 2022.
For starters, there is the problem in the supply chain caused by the pandemic that is hitting the entire world. And this is surely one of the main reasons why Elon Musk cannot meet the deadlines he wanted for the launch and sale of his personal project.
It is also important to note that the CEO and founder of the electric vehicle company has long been adding improvements to his flagship vehicle. We recently talked to you about the steering on the rear wheels to improve the handling of this behemoth.
Anyway, now the only thing we can do is arm ourselves with patience and wait for the American firm to surprise us with the launch of the long-awaited electric pick-up. Will there be a Tesla Cybertruck in 2022?
