The Tesla Cybertruck is perhaps the most hyped car ever. The market introduction was postponed for more than four years, but now Elon Musk has finally said something concrete about delivery times. He is convinced of the success of the Cybertruck, but also sees obstacles on the road.
The striking CEO of Tesla spoke about the Cybertruck during a presentation about the sales results of the past quarter. According to Musk, the fully electric pickup truck is potentially the best product Tesla has ever released. And after all these years of waiting, things are now suddenly going fast, because Tesla's website reports that the first deliveries will take place in November. Although you have to take that with a grain of salt, because the release has been postponed several times before.

It's not all hosanna, Musk immediately admitted. He even says that Tesla has "dug its own grave" with the Cybertruck. By this, Musk is referring to all the difficulties Tesla has encountered in producing the car. According to the CEO, these can be clearly explained: “Problems are normal with a new product with a lot of new technology, but this is even more true for a product that is so different and as advanced as the Cybertruck.” And so Musk does not expect to make a profit on the Cybertruck for at least another year to eighteen months.
The hype surrounding the pickup truck is unprecedented. No fewer than 1.5 million people already registered on a waiting list in 2019 and according to Musk there are still more than a million interested parties. Now the entry fee of 100 dollars was not very high, but it does show how much excitement Tesla was able to create. The price of the Cybertruck is unknown. Musk once promised that the entry-level device would be on the market for $40,000 (36,700 euros), but that has already risen to $50,000 (48,750 euros). Although Elon Musk is still tight-lipped about the final price.
Although delivery will start in November according to the latest reports, most interested parties still have to be patient. Musk expects Tesla to eventually be able to produce 250,000 Cybertrucks per year. However, this production volume will not be reached until 2025. It may well be that the Tesla Cybertruck will only then become available in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Despite all the uncertainty, the Cybertruck will undoubtedly be fine. The problems surrounding production are very reminiscent of the bumpy path that... Tesla Model 3 was walked. Like the Cybertruck, production of the sedan was postponed time and time again due to production and delivery problems. Here too, the number of pre-registrations was enormous.
Despite all the setbacks, Tesla managed to find a way to increase the production of the Model 3 and the later ones, partly through the development of Gigacasting. Tesla Model Y to streamline. Today, both cars are produced in record time and have become top sellers. History shows that Tesla always finds its way, given enough time.
