Customers will be able to get their futuristic electric pickups from mid-2023, despite production dates being pushed back multiple times since it was unveiled.
At a recent shareholder meeting, Elon Musk answered a question about Cybertruck shipments, saying that "we hope to start shipping them in the middle of next year". Musk previously confirmed that the US firm will not be releasing new models in 2022, but it looks like the next car will indeed be a Cybertruck.
The prototype of the long-awaited Tesla Cybertruck was spotted in California in June. He was present during the opening ceremony of the Elkhorn Battery warehouse in Moss Landing, with some notable changes from previous versions of the car.
While the design remains minimalistic and angular, there are a few more real touches. The photos show the new windshield wiper positioned vertically and the exterior mirrors. The wheels are also stripped of their fancy finishes, in favor of much more conventional alloy wheels.
Musk said that once Cybertruck production begins, he hopes to produce 250,000 Cybertrucks annually, but it will take time to achieve this because the technology has not been improved yet and at this stage it is still very expensive.
