Elon Musk explains why we won't see the Tesla Roadster until 2023
Will we ever see it? What about the Cybertruck?
Tesla fans have been promised the second generation of the Roadster for years now and still, nothing has come of it. This left many people wondering whether we'd even see one, but Elon Musk has spoken on the matter.
Elon Musk said: "This year has been just a constant struggle with parts supply. So just to be clear, if we had like five extra products, we would not change our vehicle output at all because we are just basically limited by multiple supply chain shortages. Like so many types, not just chips."
"There were lots of supply chain shortages. So it really wouldn't matter if we had like the Semi or the Cybertruck or anything. We would not be able to make it."
The global chip shortage is no joke and it's come at a terrible time for brands such as Tesla who rely on them to make products, but hopefully, once this is over, the Cybertruck and Roadster will grace our roads.
Tesla made a Roadster before but the upcoming one is a new and improved version said to pack over 1,000hp and Tesla says it will be able to hit 62mph from a standstill in just 1.1 seconds which is simply insane.
However, we won't be surprised if deliveries don't start until 2024 for the Roadster.
