Tesla introduced that it has constructed the “first Cybertruck” at Gigafactory Texas. Is the electrical pickup truck forward of schedule?
Tesla’s newest official touch upon the timeline for the Cybertruck was that manufacturing would begin “this summer time” and it’s planning a supply occasion “across the finish of Q3,” which might imply across the finish of September 2023.
Electrek lately reported that Tesla informed suppliers to be prepared for Cybertruck launch candidates in late August and manufacturing in early October.
Now Tesla has introduced on Twitter that the “first Cybertruck” has been “constructed’ at Gigafactory Texas:
That’s doubtless a “manufacturing intent” unit constructed on the manufacturing line and it will put Tesla forward of the schedule given to suppliers earlier this 12 months.
Does that imply deliveries are going to start out prior to anticipated? Does it imply that we are going to lastly get the ultimate specs and pricing on the Cybertruck?
I wouldn’t wager on that. Whereas it does seem that Tesla could be a bit forward of schedule, with the official timeline of the supply occasion being in late September, Tesla is probably going higher off wonderful tunning the manufacturing and provide chain to set itself off for a smoother ramp.
Both approach, it ought to nonetheless be capable to ship all that’s deliverable by the top of the quarter on the beforehand talked about supply occasion.
As for the specs and pricing, Tesla hasn’t up to date these because the launch of the prototype in 2019. Elon Musk has linked an replace on that solely on the supply occasion, which implies deliveries will doubtless be just for workers and Tesla insiders.
It seems to be like we must always have an fascinating finish of the quarter within the Tesla universe.
