Last week it was reported the Tesla Semi is delayed until 2021 and now another Tesla has been delayed. Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced in a podcast interview on Thursday that the Tesla Roadster has also been delayed while the company prioritizes other vehicles.
In the interview with stand-up comic Joe Rogan, Musk was asked when the Roadster will be available. Musk said he could not provide a date, but that the company is focusing on ramping up production of the Model Y and a new factory in Berlin. The Cybertruck is also taking priority over the Roadster.
“Roadster is kind of like dessert,” Musk said. “We gotta get the meat and potatoes and greens and stuff.”
The new Tesla Roadster was unveiled at the end of 2017 and it was expected to arrive by the end of 2020.
