It looks like the highly anticipated Tesla Cybertruck is finally making its way to customers after several years of delays. In a recent tweet, Tesla posted a picture of a Cybertruck that had just left the factory at its Giga Texas plant in Austin. “First Cybertruck built at Giga Texas,” the tweet read.

According to Electrek, the vehicle shown in the image is likely a production model created by Tesla to optimize the most effective manufacturing processes for the new vehicle at scale. Tesla appears to be on track to meet the latest deadline set by CEO Elon Musk, who has experienced several delays in the launch of the long-awaited pickup truck, as evidenced by the company’s sharing of an image of a finished Cybertruck.
Musk said earlier this year that limited production of the Cybertruck could begin as early as the summer of 2024, with volume production starting in 2024. Tesla intends to have a Cybertruck delivery event in the third quarter of 2023, Musk recently told investors. Musk acknowledged the difficulties in producing the Cybertruck, citing its unusual manufacturing techniques and the intricate design of its distinctive stainless steel frame. Tesla’s latest battery technology, the 4680, has also run into difficulties.
According to Tesla, the Cybertruck was once scheduled to debut in 2021, albeit very optimistically. The company previously said that the single-motor version would cost $39,900, while the three-motor version would cost $70,000. However, Tesla has since stated that the final price is still up in the air and could be affected by things like supply chain constraints and the state of the economy.
Fans and consumers are eagerly anticipating further updates and announcements as Tesla makes significant progress on the production of the Cybertruck. The Cybertruck has attracted a lot of interest from car enthusiasts and others looking for an electric pickup truck due to its distinctive style, novel features and performance capabilities.
