Tesla delays Cybertruck production again, this time to Q1 2023

Not for you in 2022.

Well, if you’re the person who had “Not in 2022” in your local Tesla Cybertruck production betting pool, congratulations on just winning. Reuters confirmed on Thursday that Cybertruck production will be pushed back to early 2023, despite the company having previously stated that it would get things started by the end of 2022.

Now, if you’re the kind of person who regularly follows Tesla news (and you read this, so I assume you are), then this should not be registered as any kind of surprise at all. Tesla is famous for missing its own deadlines, and this is generally the case even with cars that do not look like a discarded design for RV From Hell from the movie Tango & Cash.

According to a Reuters source, the reason for Tesla’s delay is that it wants to change the truck’s features and functions to “make a compelling product as competition in the segment gets hot.” When competing in the segment, they probably refer to Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T, Lobster EV and the new Avalanche Silverado EV None of them are shaped like HR Gigers door stop.

The question now is whether Tesla will meet this new deadline at the end of the first quarter of 2023, or whether it will continue to push back, as we have seen with the Roadster and Semi. We will ask Tesla for its position on the matter, but Tesla does not run a PR department to send requests for comment.
