Tesla postpones the production date of the Cybertruck
Major delay to be expected?
As we have heard, the new Tesla Cybertruck still divides the Internet by its innovative style. The success seems to be on track given the 200,000 pre-orders placed since the pick-up was presented. The expectation is therefore high and the demand high. It is logically necessary to produce as quickly as possible.
But when it comes to delivery times, the Californian brand does not meet the announced dates very well and is still late in production. It would therefore be surprising to see the Cybertruck arrive within the deadlines announced by Tesla. And indeed, the production date of the Cybertruck has been postponed as indicated on the pick-up's pre-booking web page.
All three versions of the Cybertruck, the Single Motor RWD, the Dual Motor AWD and the Tri Motor AWD require a $100 refundable deposit. The prices for these three models are set at $39,900, $49,900 and $69,900 respectively. The Advanced Autopilot can be added as an option for $7,000.
Finally, the Tri Motor version is scheduled to go into production at the end of 2021. Good news because this version was originally scheduled to be produced in 2022. The Dual Motor model remains planned for 2021. On the other hand, the most affordable model, the Single Motor, has seen its production postponed to the end of 2022.
This is not a problem since the Single Motor version accounts for only 17% of the pre-orders, compared to 42% and 41% respectively for the Dual and Tri Motor models. We just hope that this phenomenon does not finally cancel the production of the entry-level version, as it is the case with the Model 3.
