The Tesla Cybertruck pickup was introduced to the public almost three years ago, and it has been a year since it was supposed to go on sale, but it hasn’t happened yet. At the same time, the company does not abandon plans to produce the car at a plant under construction in Texas, and the delay is due to the coronavirus pandemic, logistics difficulties, and other objective factors.
In a recent interview with the head of the company, Elon Musk, a representative of the Tesla club, the entrepreneur shared the latest information about what is happening with, perhaps, the most anticipated car in America.
So, according to Musk, the final design of the serial pickup truck has been fully approved, and since preparation for production has already begun, making any changes to the exterior is no longer possible.
At the same time, Musk again postponed the start date of deliveries of ordered cars to customers. If at the beginning of the year he promised that production would be launched by the end of December, now he called a more realistic deadline: the middle of next year.
Thus, Cybertruck promises to be not the first, but one of the last electric pickups on the market. Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T, and GMC Hummer EV are already on sale, although the last two models are still small-scale. Other players are on the way, including two more General Motors pickup trucks and an electric Ram truck.
