Elon Musk Confirms Tesla Cybertruck Delayed Until 2023

In an earnings call on Wednesday the 26th January 2022, Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk, announced that Tesla’s Cybertruck will be delayed to “hopefully next year”. Earlier reports assumed that the electric pickup would miss its earlier production date of late 2022, and Musk’s announcement confirms just that.

According to Musk, the reason for the Cybertruck’s delay is that if the company were to introduce new vehicles, their total output will decrease.

Aside from the above, Musk talks about how the main issue is the price tag attached to the electric pickup; with the included tech, the Cybertruck had an original starting price of $39,900 at its unveiling event in 2019.

“How do we make the Cybertruck affordable?” says Musk.

During the call, the Tesla CEO was also asked about the availability of a $25,000 electric car, to which his response was that the company are not currently working on a $25,000 car; despite the fact that Musk has been promising the prospect of a low-cost Tesla for a few years now.

As said by Musk:

“At some point we will. We have enough on our plate right now. Too much frankly.”

Since the Cybertruck’s original reveal, it has undergone some notable changes, including:

  • Traditional folding mirrors
  • Invisible door handles
  • Comically oversized single windshield wiper
