Telsa Cybertruck delivery event was announced by Elon Musk and it is set to take place in the third quarter of 2023. “This is really a very radical product,” Musk stated in regard to the long-delayed electric truck which as you should know is expected to begin production this very summer.
Telsa Cybertruck Delivery Event
Telsa will reportedly have a delivery event for its long-anticipated and delayed Cybertruck in the third quarter of 2023, Elon Musk during an earnings call with investors on Wednesday said.
And after over three years since its initial announcement, the production of the Cybertruck is expected to kick off this summer although Musk has said that the volume production of the truck will not start until the coming year.
What Musk Has to Say about the New Development
“It takes time to get the manufacturing line going, and this is really a very radical product,” Musk on Wednesday stated. “It’s not made in the way that other cars are made.”
When asked for updated specs such as unique features and the range of the truck, Musk demurred, thus noting that those details in question would be revealed during the hand-off event.
“One thing I am confident of saying is that it’s an incredible product,” Musk stated. “It’s a Hall of Famer.”
The Reason for the Cybertruck Production Delay
One of the key reasons for the delay may be the decision of the company to make the Cybertruck out of stainless steel, which as you should know costs more than steel that is typically used in auto manufacturing. It cannot be stamped into fenders and other parts all thanks to its tendency to spring back into its original shape. And it also requires special welding techniques, all of which have made the production of the Cybertruck more complicated than other vehicles of Tesla.
Even less crucial parts, such as windshield wipers, need to be custom-made all thanks to the unique design of the Cybertruck.
