It’s been years since Tesla first mentioned the Cybertruck, and the world has changed a lot. Tesla’s pickup truck continues to delay its launch date. Now, Tesla has set a launch date of November 2023. However, CEO Elon Musk admitted that building the car was difficult.
At a recent financial reporting meeting, he even said: “We dug our own hole with the Cybertruck.”
Cybertruck has many flaws
For those who have been paying attention to Tesla for many years, this information is not too shocking. Tesla is famous for “missing deadlines”. What’s more, unlike the normal-looking Tesla models, the Cybertruck’s special design makes production difficult.
An email in the name of Elon Musk sent to employees in recent weeks emphasized the need to close the gaps between the panels.
This is not easy for any car, affecting the so-called “refining quality”. But with a car made primarily of stainless steel, this error is especially obvious.

Not only this, from the images taken, some Cybertrucks were found to have scratches and stainless steel body which easily attracts fingerprints.
Elon Musk himself admitted: “There are huge challenges in mass-producing the Cybertruck and thus making it profitable.”
But he also stressed that “this is normal”.
He said: “When there is a product with many new technologies or an entirely new vehicle project, especially a product as distinct and advanced as the Cybertruck, there are bound to be problems that arise during the production process. In line with that newness “.
Therefore, increasing production to the maximum level, about 250,000 units/year, will not be possible until 2025 at the earliest. If true, this would be approximately 6 years after the Cybertruck was first introduced.
At least, the first production batch will come out soon. Tesla will hold a special event on November 30 at Giga Texas, America.
Over 1 Million Cybertruck Orders
In the context of increasing competition in the electric vehicle market, the launch of Cybertruck holds special significance for Tesla.
Although Tesla still dominates, its market share is also beginning to decline as other manufacturers pursue electric vehicles.
The Cybertruck was originally scheduled to launch in 2019, with delivery in 2021, but was delayed due to its unique design and the complexity of mass production.
What’s surprising is that despite these challenges and delays, demand for the Tesla Cybertruck remains strong. Elon Musk revealed that he has more than 1 million orders, which shows the importance of this pickup model. The Cybertruck’s success is critical in allowing Tesla to maintain its leadership position in the electric vehicle market.
