The Expected Finally Happened!Tesla Postponed the Delivery of Cybertruck to 2022!
Tesla Motor, the largest electric vehicle manufacturer in the USA, delayed the delivery of Cybertruck to 2022. It is said that the chip crisis in the automotive industry and contractions in the supply chain are behind the delay.
Rumors have been circulating for a while that Tesla Motors, the largest US electric car maker, will delay deliveries of Cybertrucks. The chip crisis in the automotive industry and the contraction in the supply chain also hit Tesla's production. The company has updated Cybertruck 's estimated delivery date to 2022.
Similar delays were also seen on the Model S and Model X. While the initial delivery date for the Model S was February, the delivery of the vehicles was in June. While the Model X is expected to be delivered in the months following February, no statement has been made from the company at this time.
Tesla's Competitors Are Also Delaying Deliveries!
Postponing deliveries of the Tesla Cybertruck to 2022 is not a big deal when the entire electric vehicle industry is in trouble. Although Tesla rival Rivian also introduced the R1T pickup in 2018, deliveries have not yet begun. Lucid Air company has also taken its share from this situation; The company's CEO, Peter Rawlinson, attributes the delay to problems in the supply chain.
Lars Moravy, Tesla's Vice President of Vehicle Engineering, said: “Cybertruck is currently in alpha. We have completed the basic engineering processes for the basic architecture. We are redefining vehicle production with Cybertruck.
As Elon said, Cybertruck has most of the Model Y's structural package and major casting designs developed in Berlin and Austin. Of course, these take away Cybertruck's priority, but at the end of this year we will move Cybertruck into beta stages. We plan to carry this development to the production stage and bring Cybertruck to Texas after Model Y is ready.”
Preparations in the production phase of Cybertruck are nearing completion. The production facility called Gigafactory in Texas is being built at an incredible speed. It looks like it's been a while before the Giga Press machines that will cast Cybertruck appear. The Texas/Sinton branch of Steel Dynamics, Cybertruck's steel supplier, also continues to grow steadily.
