Tesla Cybertruck's release date is now delayed to 2022, as per the reservations website of the electric pick-up. It comes after the EV giant CEO, Elon Musk, previously hinted at the production challenges of the massive trapezoid-shaped vehicle.
As per The Drive, two years have already passed since Elon Musk boasted the obscure Cybertruck concept in a jam-packed event held in Los Angeles on November 22, 2019.
The outlet further added that the trapezoid-shaped vehicle is far from being a flop. It is despite Elon Musk saying that there is a possibility that the electric pick-up will likely fail, but that the Tesla exec said that he does not care.
Tesla Cybertruck Release Date Delayed
The latest information from the reservation website of the Tesla Cybertruck confirmed that fans of the vehicle need to be equipped with additional patience, as they will have to wait for a little while before the electric truck releases.
A Twitter user that goes by the name Sawyer Merritt broke the news on Twitter, saying that the Tesla Cybertruck release has been moved to 2022 as he cites the footnotes of the reservation page of the vehicle.
It is to note that Tesla initially promised that the Cybertruck would see the light of day in the market by the end of 2021, way back when it debuted two years ago.
But it seems that the date has now been officially moved.
The order/reservation page of the Tesla truck noted that the configurator for the vehicle will only be available "as production nears in 2022."
The message is seen in all of the Cybertruck variants on the Tesla website, even as the EV giant hinted that the Dual Motor and Tri-Motor options will release ahead of the other choices.
The EV maker has yet to confirm other details about the release of the Cybertruck. As of now, fans of the electric pick-up are left with the footnote on the company website.
Tesla Cybertruck Production Delay
Musk has been transparent about the production challenges of the trapezoid-shaped pickup. As such, the delay in the release of the Cybertruck has been expected early on.
To be precise, the Tesla CEO blamed the features of the Cybertruck as the root cause of the production hiccups, such as the steel exoskeleton body of the vehicle.
During Tesla's fourth-quarter 2020 earnings call, Musk said that there is a slim chance to deliver the Cybertruck by the end of 2021, adding that the mass production is possibly beginning by 2022.
Meanwhile, on a more recent earnings call for the second quarter of 2021, Tesla Engineering Head Lars Moravy also raised the possibility of a delay.
