It's being reported that Tesla wants to begin Cybertruck production at the end of 2023. Now whether or not that will actually happen is something completely different.
A new report from Reuters says Tesla is aiming to begin full Cybertruck mass production by the end of next year. For realsies this time, or so it says. This would only be two years after the initial mass production target was announced by CEO Elon Musk. That easily beats out vehicles like the Semi and new Roadster.
That being said, words are cheap when it comes to Tesla production targets, so we’ll remain skeptical until Cybertrucks actually start rolling off the assembly line in Austin, Texas.
“We’re in the final lap for Cybertruck,” Musk told financial analysts in a conference call.
According to Reuters, a gradual ramp-up in the second half of 2023 will culminate in full output by the end of that year. That would mean the company wouldn’t make any money off the long-awaited Cybertruck until the beginning of 2024 at the earliest.
There’s still no word on exactly how much the Cybertruck will cost people who put down a $100 deposit years ago, but it’s a safe bet that it’ll be well over the initial $40,000 Musk projected it to be.
