On Saturday, Tesla took to Twitter to announce the completion of its inaugural Cybertruck at the Texas facility, while also hinting at an accelerated production rate in the near future.
The journey towards the Cybertruck’s realization has been filled with obstacles that contributed to the extended delay.
Following the original plan to commence shipments in 2021, Tesla decided to introduce modifications to enhance various features and components, as revealed by a reliable source interviewed by SurgeZirc SA.
Apologizing for the delay, Elon Musk addressed investors in May, assuring them that the forthcoming Cybertrucks would surpass expectations.
“Sorry for the delay, we’re finally going to start delivering production Cybertrucks later this year,” Musk stated confidently. “And I think the product, if anything, is better than expectations.”
Despite uncertainties surrounding its pricing, initial estimates from Tesla in 2019 suggested a base price of $40,000 for the Cybertruck.
However, with factors such as inflation and evolving specifications, the final cost is likely to vary and potentially increase.
According to a data obtained, approximately 1.9 million preorders has been made for this cutting-edge vehicle, highlighting the significant demand for the Cybertruck’s futuristic design and advanced features.
