The Tesla Cybertruck was revealed over two years ago and initially it was slated to arrive at the end of 2021, but now it’s been delayed again. Reuters has confirmed that Tesla has pushed back the Cybertruck production until early 2023, which has been pushed from the earlier update that it would arrive at the end of 2022.
We’re not too surprised here, since Tesla has missed its production deadlines before. According to a source that spoke with Reuters, the Cybertruck delay is due to the fact that Tesla wants to update its functions and features to “make a compelling product as competition in the segment heats up.” When the Cybertruck finally arrives it will compete with a growing number of electric trucks, including the Ford F-150 Lighting, GMC Hummer EV, Rivian R1T and the Chevy Silverado EV.
We’re still waiting for the arrival of the Roadster and Semi as well, so we’ll have to wait and see if the Cybertruck gets delayed again.
