Production of Tesla’s electric pick-up cyber truck is not expected to begin this year. According to the company’s website, the construction of the CyberTruck has been postponed to 2022. Tesla CyberTruck was officially unveiled in 2019. The company had announced that the electric pickup would go on sale by the end of 2021. Production of the vehicle is expected to start in 2022, the company said on its website.
The website also suggests launching a configurator system by 2022 that will allow CyberTruck to choose the user’s taste. Tesla has postponed production of all three variants of the CyberTruck to next year. The company had earlier said that the high-end versions of the pickup, the dual-motor and tri-motor variants, would be the first to arrive.
Tesla has only recently completed the engineering design of the CyberTruck. This is considered to be the main reason for the delay in production. In addition, Tesla chief Elon Musk had previously indicated that the new construction process would be required to build CyberTruck’s steel exoskeleton body. Tesla claims that CyberTruck has received over 10 million bookings.
