Tesla CyberTruck

Tesla has removed the 2022 production date of the Cybertruck from their website, which was initially supposed to start production in late 2021 then delayed to sometime in 2022.

Plans for Tesla’s Cybertruck were originally announced back in 2019, and guesses for the delay are many including the ongoing coronavirus crisis, global chip shortage and problems with the cybertruck itself.

Two of the product’s aesthetic concerns is the angular shape which has stirred up controversy and the need to create exceptionally large windshield wipers to for the huge front window.

Additionally, rushing the Cybertruck’s production process is believed to be further down Tesla’s list of priorities, especially since 2021 has been a successful year for the company’s other vehicles.

Tesla’s Model Three made history as the first electric vehicle to rank first in terms of monthly sales in Europe. The company delivered approximately one million cars last year, which is an 87 percent increase in comparison to figures from the year before 2020.

While Tesla Cybertruck can afford to delay the production of cybertrucks, it is risking losing potential buyers.

CEO Elon Musk has made promises to share a “Product roadmap update” for Tesla’s Cybertruck on January 26.
