When Elon Musk presented the Tesla Cybertruck in November 2019, he said that it would hit the market at the end of 2021. That ultimately did not happen and the company announced that the production of the pickup would be delayed until 2022. Now, a change detected on the pre-booking page notices another possible delay.
Upon entering the Cybertruck minisite you can see that Tesla has stopped specifying that production will take place in 2022. According to a Web Archive query, the company removed all references to the year 2022 at the end of December last year.
Waiting for a new roadmap
Specifically, if you tried to order the Cybertruck, the page displayed the following message: “You will be able to complete your configuration as production approaches in 2022.” Now, instead, it says this: “You will be able to complete your setup as production approaches“.
The truth is that the company also has been gradually removing other elements from the minisite of the Cybertruck. Tesla at the time eliminated the specifications, the prices and stopped allowing users to make a custom configuration.
There are no official details about the specific problems that Tesla would be having to be forced to repeatedly delay the production of its futuristic pickup, however, last year Elon Musk blamed and Twitter a la “supply chain nightmare”.
Later, in that same conversation, the tycoon, in response to complaints about Cybertruck delays, He said that would provide a “product roadmap update” in the next earnings announcement. At that time the date was not known, but Tesla has already made it known.
“Tesla will release its fourth quarter and full year ended financial results on December 31, 2021 after market close. on Wednesday, January 26, 2022“, says part of an official statement from the company.
On January 26, as planned, the company’s financial results will be released. Now, if we take into account Elon Musk’s statements, we could also have news from the Cybertruck and possibly other expected products, like the Semi and the new Roadster.
