According to Elon Musk, the company’s CEO, Tesla’s long-awaited electric pickup, the Cybertruck, will go into production next year, along with a slew of other new items.
The truck, which has an angular form and a stainless-steel covering that distinguishes it from ordinary pickups, has been delayed following an unlucky debut in 2019 when a designer threw a metal ball through a window in what was supposed to be a display of the vehicle’s resilience.
Instead, the window cracked.
“We’re going to smash the window again,” Mr. Musk joked on Thursday as a Cybertruck rolled onstage at a lavish “Cyber Rodeo” organized by Tesla in Austin, Texas, to show off its new factory near the state capital.
“We can’t wait to build this here,” Mr. Musk, wearing a black cowboy hat, said of the truck. “Sorry for the delay. But you’re going to have this next year, and it’s really going to be great.”
Tesla’s CEO has a track record of good goods that never materialize or arrive later than expected. Still, his timeline for the Cybertruck is more concrete than what he offered investors in January when he stated delivery in 2023 was “very likely.”
Due to delays in the production of the Cybertruck, competitors have been able to bring pickup trucks to market faster, which is one of the most popular types of vehicle in the United States. The Lightning, a battery-powered version of Ford’s F-150, is anticipated to be delivered this summer. Rivian’s electric truck debuted late last year to acclaim, but the business has struggled to scale up production, a common issue for young auto companies.
Tesla invited approximately 15,000 people to the Cyber Rodeo, which Mr. Musk hailed as the “largest party on earth” in his trademark hyperbole. He claims the factory is the size of three Pentagons.
According to KXAN, local schools closed early so parents could avoid traffic congestion caused by individuals going to the event. Among the attendees was actor Harrison Ford. Tesla arranged red, white, and blue cars in a pattern that resembled the Texas flag.
Manufacturing is part of Tesla’s global development, including a new facility near Berlin. In combination with an existing factory in Shanghai, the additional production lines might allow the business to repeat its boom from 2021, when it nearly doubled sales to over one million vehicles, significantly surpassing other major automakers.
Mr. Musk stated, “This year is all about scaling up.” “There will be a major influx of new products next year.”
In 2023, Tesla will also release a roadster, a semi-truck, and “ideally” the first iteration of Optimus. This humanoid robot will do “everything that people won’t want to do,” according to Mr. Musk. According to him, customers in North America will be able to try out a beta version of full self-driving software this year.
Tesla Cybertruck Exterior
One look at the Tesla Cybertruck’s bodywork evokes feelings of extreme ingenuity and endurance. Every component, according to Tesla, is built for maximum strength and endurance. It has a structural skin made of ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel that proved to be highly protective, wildly when pounded with a sledgehammer. Because it is Bulletproof, the cybertruck almost appears impregnable! Impact force can be absorbed and redirected by an ultra-strong glass and polymer-layered composite for increased performance and damage tolerance. This vehicle is capable of providing enhanced passenger and cargo protection. Read more; Tesla Texas update, Mercedes EQS range, Daimler electric trucks.

The Tesla cybertruck’s distinct performance may be summarized in three words: speed, strength, and versatility. The cybertruck has a powerful drivetrain and a low center of gravity that provides exceptional traction control and torque, allowing acceleration from 0-60 mph in as little as 2.9 seconds and a range of up to 500 miles.
The Tesla cybertruck’s acceleration and range are determined by the model. The base model’s single motor accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and ranges around 250 miles between charges. The Tesla truck with dual motors and all-wheel drive is planned to reach 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and range 300 miles. The top-of-the-line tri-motor all-wheel-drive vehicle has a range of 500 miles and accelerates to 60 mph in under three seconds. Read also; 2022 Tesla Model 3 Review.

The Tesla Cybertruck is available in three different variants. These versions are differentiated by their drivetrain. These are the following:
- Single Motor RWD
